Faster technologies will capture catalyst and enzyme reactions better
Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) is an established technology widely used in analytical chemistry to determine molecular structure and sample content. Stopped-flow NMR rapidly mixes reactants in a chamber and then stops the flow in the reactant stream for measurements. It enables the study of very fast reactions using a probe with a very fast flow rate and a very short time between the end of mixing and the start of measurement (dead time). The EU-funded fastNMR project will enhance its advanced in situ stopped-flow NMR methodology, reducing the dead time by one to two orders of magnitude with a focus on revealing the dynamics of important catalytic and enzymatic processes.
