Magic Angle Gradient (MAG) Coil
For gradient spectroscopy and diffusion
- Ultra-high gradients
- 400 G/cm PFG at 14 T
- Exceptional recovery
- High resolution
- Wide VT range
- Compatible with NB or WB Probes
- Spinning speeds for probes with MAG Coils:
- 22 kHz MAS for 3 mm
- 18 kHz MAS for 4 mm
Results obtained with a Doty 4 mm 1H/19F/X MAS/MAG NMR probe
Directed along the magic angle, a pulsed field gradient of 230 G cm-1 (with 10 Amps) permitted the measurement of a diffusion coefficient for F- using a Doty 4 mm 1H/19F/X MAS/MAG NMR probe (400 MHz 1H) and 19F PGSE magic angle spinning NMR spectroscopy.
The self-diffusion coefficient for F- at 40 oC in a polymeric fluoride ion conductor was measured to be in the 2 10-10 – 4 10-10 m2 s-1 range depending on the type of material.1 One illustrative PGSE decay curve is reported in the Figure to the right/above (recorded with a diffusion time of 30 ms). Overall, the self-diffusion coefficients obtained by NMR spectroscopy were in good agreement with those calculated from impedance spectroscopy data using the Nernst–Einstein equation.
