Related to diamagnetic: Diamagnetic levitation


Of or relating to a substance that generates a magnetic field in the direction opposite to an externally applied magnetic field and is therefore repelled by it.

Water is diamagnetic, which means that it will be repelled by a magnet.
In relation to antioxidant capacity it is worth to remember that, DPPH is a stable free radical that may be able to accept an electron or hydrogen radical to become a stable diamagnetic molecule.
On the other hand, substances such as water, organic compounds and living tissues, are considered diamagnetic materials, because their electron spins do not undergo rearrangement in the presence of a MF, and always are repelled by it.
Specifically, we will show that MAS-DNP can become a choice technique for the study of diamagnetic metal binding sites, complementing EPR for the study of metalloproteins.
Our initial investigations have demonstrated an effective technique to economically produce high quality commercial scale graphene without the use of any growth substrate simply by utilizing the interplay between a magnetic field and the diamagnetic nature of graphene.
The characteristics signal of EPR is generated by T2 copper but detecting it spectromatically is not possible, whereas the diamagnetic T3 copper is bi-nuclear.
Magnetic moment data of Pt(II) complex indicate that the complex is a diamagnetic with [d.
This stable free radical accepts an electron or hydrogen radical to become a stable diamagnetic molecule which is widely used to investigate radical scavenging activity.
1) In recent years, much attention has focused on porous structures of transition metal oxides and the most studied porous materials are those built from diamagnetic units, such as carbon, (2,3) oxides of p elements, (4,5) etc.
These may include ferromagnetic materials (iron, cobalt and nickel strongly amplify the magnetic field), diamagnetic materials (copper, gold, zinc, lead, carbon and bismuth slightly weaken the magnetic field) and Para-magnetic materials (chromium, manganese and aluminum slightly amplify the magnetic field).
Moreover, diamagnetic effects were also displayed at C-3' and C-8 ([DELTA][[delta].
