NMR spectroscopy is a vital characterization technique in chemical synthesis in many fields (e.g., agrochemcials, pharmaceuticals, biotech, flavour and fragrance, materials, fine chemicals, etc.).
For start-up, small and medium sized chemical companies a high-field NMR spectrometer is often not economically feasible, but outsourcing limits the rate of decision-making time, and reduces the number of NMR spectra that are acquired such that they may not be used in reaction monitoring and optimization, purification and/or analysis.
Outsourcing costs depend on:
Availability of resources with local universities typically representing the most affordable option and service providers being the most expensive.
Cost and time to transfer samples
Data transfer and integrity can be in question
