New Technique Boosts Protein NMR Imaging Speeds
February 9, 2009
A group led by a University of Illinois at Chicago chemist has found a way to shorten the time needed to obtain molecular structure imaging information from solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). They've also found a way to use smaller imaging samples to obtain spectral imaging data and reduce experiment costs.
