C-13 Isotope Applications:

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

  • C-13 isotope is used for Carbon-13 (C-13 isotope, 13C isotope) nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) to research and study structure of carbon-containing substances;
  • C-13 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;
  • C-13 isotope is used for Carbon-13 (C-13 isotope, 13C isotope) isotope-labeled compounds that are used in the research of metabolic processes (e.g. metabolism and in metabolism-mediated toxicity studies) using isotope ratio mass spectrometry (IRMS);

C-13 Information

Carbon is a member of group 14 of the periodic table. It has three allotropic forms: diamonds, graphite and fullerite ones. Carbon-14 is commonly used in radioactive dating. This element occurs in all organic life and it 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. Carbon has 15 isotopes. 3 isotopes are naturally occurring, 2 of which are stable.

Carbon is used for making steel, in filters, and it has many more uses. Radiocarbon dating uses the carbon-14 isotope to date old objects.
