Nuclear Magnetic Resonance

A non-destructive quantitative analytical technique, essential in Aerial's arsenal of technologies and expertise

Magnetic resonance spectroscopy provides qualitative and quantitative access to the chemical composition of matter. 

It allows the characterization of simple and complex systems, the monitoring of transformation processes of matter and the study of molecular interactions. A wide range of approaches has been developed with this technique, which has many applications whether in agriculture, food, health, biology, materials or the environment.
