Abstract

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) is a form of spectroscopy that can be used to gain information about the composition of certain substances. This involves measuring the characteristic spectrum of various substances or tissues. This spectrum can be used to determine the presence and relative concentration of that particular substance and to establish the molecular structure.
