Information Related to NMR

Nobel Prizes awarded for developments that were key to NMR spectroscopy

  • 1943: Otto Stern - "for his contribution to the development of the molecular ray method and his discovery of the magnetic moment of the proton"
  • 1944: Isidor Isaac Rabi - "for his resonance method for recording the magnetic properties of atomic nuclei"
  • 1952: Felix Bloch and Edward Mills Purcell - "for their development of new methods for nuclear magnetic precision measurements and discoveries in connection therewith"
  • 1991: Richard R. Ernst - "for his contributions to the development of the methodology of high resolution nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy"
  • 2002: Kurt Wüthrich - "for his development of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy for determining the three-dimensional structure of biological macromolecules in solution"
  • 2003: Paul C. Lauterbur and Sir Peter Mansfield - "for their discoveries concerning magnetic resonance imaging"
