13C Isotope Information and Examples of Enriched 13C Applications:

Carbon-13 isotope (C-13 isotope, 13C isotope)

  • 13C isotope is used for carbon-13 nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) to research and study structure of carbon-containing substances;
  • 13C isotope is used for Carbon isotopic signatures (isotopic fingerprint) in biological science based on kinetic fractionation where biological processes preferentially take up the lower mass isotope and in eath science e.g. geochemistry;
  • 13C isotope is used for C-13 enriched (Carbon-13 enriched, 13C-enriched) isotope-labeled compounds are used in the research of metabolic processes (e.g. metabolism and in metabolism-mediated toxicity studies) using isotope ratio mass spectrometry (IRMS);

Carbon Information

Carbon is a member of group 14 of the periodic table. It has three allotropic forms of it, diamonds, graphite and fullerite. Carbon-14 is commonly used in radioactive dating. Carbon occurs in all organic life and is the basis of organic chemistry. Carbon has the interesting chemical property of being able to bond with itself, and a wide variety of other elements.

For making steel, in filters, and many more uses. Radiocarbon dating uses the carbon-14 isotope to date old objects.
