Principles and Applications of NMR spectroscopy
Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR) has become a powerful analytical technology that has found a variety of applications in many research fields and various industries. It can be used to determine the molecular structure of unknown compounds or verify known compounds. NMR manages to “see” the nuclear spin of some atoms that make up the molecules.
The objectives of this short course is to explain the basic aspects of NMR and discuss some applications. Topics to be covered include NMR fundamentals, namely acquisition, processing and interpretation of 1D and standard 2D experiments. Applications include structural elucidation, solvent suppression, qNMR, DOSY, and metabolomics.
The course involves the presentation and discussion of all topics. Some concepts and applications will be demonstrated by real-time analysis of selected samples and discussion of methods/results, using remote control software to access the instrument’s computer. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss their specific research interests and applications.
