NMR Workshop - May 22-23, 2014

NMR Workshop

The NMR facility is offering an Introductory Workshop for both graduate and undergraduate students, on the mornings of Thursday May 22 and Friday May 23 2014, from 9-12 each day.

This introductory workshop is geared toward undergraduate students, summer students and/or graduate students with limited (or no) NMR experience, 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 students receive and will allow an opportunity to go into greater depth on many topics.  The schedule will consist of a lecture to start each day followed by hands-on learning sessions where participants will get the opportunity to make NMR samples as well as 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!

Registration can be done on the NMR Facility Web page.
