For the first time in Iraq, the University of Basra introduces a nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer to its laboratories

The College of Education for Pure Sciences managed to introduce a nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer to its laboratories.

And the official of the devices in the Department of Chemistry at the College of Education for Pure Sciences, Dr. Faiza Abdul Karim Nasser, indicated that this device is the first of its kind to enter service in Iraqi universities after Iraq was removed from the list of Item VII.

Nasser added that the university obtained this device from the local government in Basra after submitting an official request to the governor to indicate the actual need in the university's laboratories for graduate students and researchers in scientific colleges.

Dr. Faiza added that nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy is a method for determining the chemical structure of organic compounds. It is a research technique that uses the magnetic properties of some atomic nuclei and determines the physical and chemical properties of atoms or molecules that contain them. It depends on the phenomenon of nuclear magnetic resonance and can give detailed information about the structure, dynamics and reaction state. The chemical environment of the molecules

The magnetic field within a molecule around an atom in a molecule changes the resonance frequency and this gives information about the electronic structure of the molecule.

 The device is of Swiss-German origin for BRUKER Company and is considered a qualitative leap in the field of scientific research due to its importance in diagnosing organic and biological synthetic compounds, as well as conducting special studies on compounds. The company’s expert installed the device and trained a specialized staff to operate the device on site.
