Title: Flow-through probe for NMR spectrometers

Abstract: There is disclosed an NMR probe including a body defining an internalchamber. This chamber is adapted for supporting a vacuum and the body isof a non-magnetic material. A conduit extends through the chamber in thebody. The conduit has a first portion in communication with secondportions, the first portion being intermediate the second portions, withthe first and second portions of non-magnetic materials with substantiallyequal thermal expansion coefficients. An RF coil is positioned along atleast a substantial portion of the first conduit portion. It is preferredthat this device also include a field or frequency lock unit in thechamber, as well as a getter, to allow for degassing in the chamber tomaintain the preferred high pressure vacuum. A method of using this NMRprobe for NMR analysis is also disclosed.
