COVID-19 update (Jan 2021). Treesearch is following the recommendations from the Public Health Agency of Sweden and the local restrictions from the Treesearch partners. Due to health concerns and  travel restrictions all courses during spring 2021 will be given as on-line courses. For summer and autumn we hope to give courses in person, with the complementary possibility to attend on-line.

NMR Spectroscopy introduction level

Molecular Structure and Dynamics by NMR Spectroscopy in solution state

Course content:

The course contains 5 topics covering the followings

  1. Basic principles of NMR spectroscopy, the spectrometer
  2. Spectral parameters (chemical shift, couplings)
  3. Relaxation, 13C-NMR, Polarization transfer experiments,
    Nuclear Overhauser Effect (NOE)
  4. 2D-NMR spectroscopy, Protocol for routine structure determination
  5. Dynamic NMR Spectroscopy

Additional to the lectures a significant amount of time will be spent on solving problems and answering questions.

There are currently some issues with the registration system, we are working on it and hope that it is soon up and running as normal.

Learning objectives:

It is a practice oriented course to develop knowledge and understanding of the application of various one- and two-dimensional NMR experiments to gives the skills to elucidate structures and solve kinetic problems in solutions of small organic molecules.

Sept 29 – Oct 2, and Oct 6 – Oct 9, 2020
