[NMR] 1st Conference on Zero and Ultra Low Field (ZULF) NMR

Dear colleagues,

We are happy to announce that the registration for the 1st Conference on Zero and Ultra-Low Field (ZULF) NMR is now open. The conference will take place from 1 to 4 September 2020 via videoconferencing and there is no registration fee. All the information and the registration link are available at

You are encouraged to participate in the Twitter poster session. The best posters will be awarded prizes, sponsored by Wiley and ISMAR. As the field is emerging, we encourage attendees to present also ideas that have not yet been realized.

The conference addresses students and postdocs as well as specialists across all areas of NMR spectroscopy and imaging with an interest in the field of ZULF NMR. The first half of the event consists of a series of lectures that cover the basics of ZULF NMR, to provide background and context for those working so far mainly in high-field NMR. The second half is dedicated to talks on current developments in ZULF NMR science and technology, given by leaders in the field.

The 1st ZULF Conference is fully organized by students of the European Training Network ZULF (, with the support of the consortium beneficiaries. We are excited about the unique opportunity that this conference offers to convey our enthusiasm for this field to others.

With kind regards,

Organizing Committee 1st ZULF Conference,

Progress in low-field benchtop NMR spectroscopy in chemical and biochemical analysis

Grootveld, Martin, Benita Percival, Miles Gibson, Yasan Osman, Mark Edgar, Marco Molinari, Melissa L. Mather, Federico Casanova, and Philippe B. Wilson. “Progress in Low-Field Benchtop NMR Spectroscopy in Chemical and Biochemical Analysis.” Analytica Chimica Acta 1067 (August 2019): 11–30.

The employment of spectroscopically-resolved NMR techniques as analytical probes have previously been both prohibitively expensive and logistically challenging in view of the large sizes of high-field facilities. However, with recent advances in the miniaturisation of magnetic resonance technology, low-field, cryogen-free “benchtop” NMR instruments are seeing wider use. Indeed, these miniaturised spectrometers are utilised in areas ranging from food and agricultural analyses, through to human biofluid assays and disease monitoring. Therefore, it is both intrinsically timely and important to highlight current applications of this analytical strategy, and also provide an outlook for the future, where this approach may be applied to a wider range of analytical problems, both qualitatively and quantitatively. © 2019 Elsevier B.V.
