Tacticity of polymers by NMR

Polymer tacticity (isotactic, syndiotactic, or atactic) can be studied using differing NMR techniques suitable for different polymer types.

Polypropylene (PP) is analyzed using 1H-NMR and can be combined with 2D experiments such as COSY-NMR for more precise results. Poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) is analyzed using 13C-NMR and can be combined with 2D experiments such as HMQC-NMR or HSQC-NMR for more precise results.

The processed spectra are delivered as an image file. Additional interpretation and raw data can be provided upon request.

Please contact Measurlabs' NMR experts to receive a testing plan tailored to your material and analysis needs. Different NMR techniques may need to be used for these analyses based on the sample type and matrix.

The price of the measurement can depend on whether your samples require the use of specialized deuterated solvents or measurement conditions (i.e. high temperatures or long measurement times).
