The Latest Technology
Well, the latest for 1960, anyway. That's the Bruker KIS-1 NMR machine there, folks, operating at 25 MHZ, and ready to dim the lights in the whole building when you switch on that electromagnet. Allow about 12 hours of acquisition time to get a decent spectrum.
For those of you outside the field, a 300 MHZ NMR machine is now considered a average workhorse instrument, and should give you a spectrum (with resolution that would have made someone back then faint with joy) in a minute or so of acquisition time. We can do things with modern machines that they wouldn't have even dreamed of back in 1960, and people are still thinking up new tricks. All hail NMR!
