In 1950–1960 nuclear magnetic resonance was the most acceptable method of study of configuration of chemical structure of substances and reactive processes. In 1973 Lauterbach performed the first magnetic resonance study. Since 1983, the development of magnetic resonance equipment and its software later gave a possibility to the investigators to receive a high contrast image of 1 mm slice within several seconds.
