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.
