||W44 - Micro-ESR as a Laboratory Teaching Tool
||Active Spectrum's Micro-ESR is a portable (10 kg), X-band (9.7 GHz) benchtop electron spin resonance spectrometer. It is an ideal tool for teaching undergraduate physics and chemistry labs. I will bring the spectrometer, and conduct a laboratory in which we look at several different stable radicals, and discuss what we can learn from the ESR spectra of these compounds. Information about bonding, electron density, and nuclear coupling are a few areas.
I would also like to take some time to demonstrate the features of the spectrometer which students can control, and how those parameters affect the observed spectra.
