Advanced NMR Workshop, June 13-14, 2018

NMR Workshop - Advanced Techniques, 2D NMR,  and Introduction to Solid State NMR

Wednesday June 13 and Thursday June 14, 9am to noon each day

The workshop will briefly cover the basic physical theory behind the advanced NMR experiments but the focus will be on demonstrating the uses of these experiments and practical aspects of experimental set up.  The schedule will consist of a mixture of lectures and of hands-on sessions on the NMR spectrometers where participants will get the opportunity to set up experiments and collect data.

The topics covered include topics covered include:

  • DOSY

  • COSY
  • NOESY/ROESY

  • HMQC/HMBC

  • Differences between solution and solid state NMR
  • Solid State NMR sample preparation
  • Magic-angle spinning – MAS  (tuning the angle with KBr)

  • Cross-polarization (CP) MAS
  • Basic 1H and 13C SSNMR experiments
  • Pulse field gradients
  • Shaped Pulses

  • Selective 1D NOESY
  • HOMODEC

  • DEPTQ
  • PSYCHE (broad band homonuclear decoupling)





This advanced workshop is available to undergraduate, graduate students and postdocs who have already taken the Introductory NMR Workshop or who have completed the third year Spectroscopic Structure Identification course (59-330/332) (or equivalent) and who have demonstrated sufficient competence to the NMR Facility Manager. No experience in solid state NMR is required.

Enrolment is free but numbers are limited.

NMR Workshop - May 23 and May 24

2 DAY Workshop: Introduction to Practical Aspects of Solution NMR for Chemists
Wednesday May 23 to Thursday Thursday 24 : 9 am to noon each day

This introductory workshop is geared toward undergraduate students, and new graduate students with limited NMR experience, but who are expected to make use of the NMR spectrometers as part of their research projects.

The workshop is meant as a supplement to the "one on one" training that new NMR users receive and will allow an opportunity to go into greater depth on many topics, therefore students who have recently started to use our NMR instruments are especially encouraged to attend. There will be an Advanced NMR Workshop offered later in the summer.

The schedule will consist of a lecture to start each day followed by hands-on learning sessions where participants will get the opportunity to collect and process NMR data.

The topics covered include:
  • How an NMR spectrometer works
  • NMR Magnet Safety
  • Preparation of NMR Samples
  • Set up of 1D 1H and 13C NMR Experiments
  • Processing and Presentation of NMR Data


The workshop is free of charge to members of the Dept. of Chemistry and Biochemistry; however, enrollment is limited, so please register soon!
Please note that a separate Intro Workshop will be held for MMB students in July so MMB students should not register for this workshop.

Chemical and Biochemical Connections Event
May 10th, 2018 | 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
at the Fogolar Furlan Windsor – Dante Costa Hall
1800 N Service Rd, Windsor, ON, N8W 1Y3

Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry cordially invites you to join us for the second annual Chemical and Biochemical Connections Event, ChemiConn 2018, to be held in the Dante Costa Hall at the Fogolar Furlan Windsor. This event offers you the opportunity to connect with several chemical and biochemical companies from across North America, as well as to learn about their expertise and challenges in industry.

Lab groups interested in attending are requested to present a 3 – 5 minute talk showcasing specific techniques used in their respective research projects. Presentations should highlight the relevance of these techniques to industry, with hopes of stimulating collaboration.

Program Highlights:
