Screenshot 2023 11 15 163727


After an unprecedented rise of lithium-ion batteries, which have revolutionized all our lives, battery research and production has entered a new phase: the ambitious goal to ensure the safety and sustainability of batteries while boosting performance and scaling up their production. Meet Bruker’s NMR experts to learn and discuss how NMR spectroscopy provides a suite of analytical capabilities to support your battery production and future innovations.

Webinar Overview

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is a powerful analytical technique for determining physical and chemical properties of matter. As diverse as the analytical issues within the battery value chain are, so are the different variants of this method.

This webinar will first provide a brief introduction to the basic characteristics of the different types of NMR instruments (AVANCE 300+ floorstanding, Fourier 80 benchtop, and TD-NMR benchtop) and typical techniques relevant for battery materials, and then move on to insightful application examples, focusing on liquid and pasty samples, as are brines, electrolytes, and slurries.
