Aldrich NMR Tubes

Every Aldrich premium-quality NMR tube is inspected and gauged to meet published specifications.

  • Aldrich Statement of Conformance stamped on each box of tubes
  • Made of ASTM Type I borosilicate glass* for compatibility with ground joints, valves, and vacuum racks
  • Precision ground and highly polished for spinning stability and highest resolution
  • Thin-wall glass with round-bottoms
  • Sandblasted marking spot for labelling samples
    *Except disposable grade NMR tubes.

 

NMR TUBE SELECTION GUIDE

Choose the NMR tube grade that most closely matches the frequency (in MHz) of the spectrometer.

Wilmad NMR Tubes

Made of Pyrex borosilicate glass (unless otherwise noted) for compatibility with ground joints, valves, and vacuum racks. Precision ground and highly polished for spinning stability and highest resolution. Tubes have round bottoms and include a sandblasted marking spot for labeling samples. Tubes that are 9in. L are for making standards and for use with tip-off manifolds.

 

SELECTION GUIDE

 

Grade Applications
Precision Frequently used as disposable tubes by students and in rudimentary studies
Imperial 60 to 270MHz, lower field studies
Ultra-Imperial 60 to 360MHz, for routine applications
Royal Imperial 200 to 500MHz, unsurpassed performance in this range
Emperor 500MHz or higher, offers highest precision available

Wilmad Screw Cap NMR Tubes

NMR tube has an open-top, screw-thread cap with a PTFE/silicone septum that permits addition of reactants or samples via syringe through the cap. Also good for sample storage. Caps and septa are replaceable. Excellent for handling air-sensitive samples and in cell perfusion studies. Tubes are 7in. L.
