NMR Workshop on Solution NMR - Oct. 13 and 14, 2016

2 DAY Workshop: Introduction to Practical Aspects of Solution NMR for Chemists 

Thursday October 13th and Friday October 14th: 9 am to noon each day 

This introductory workshop is geared toward undergraduate students, 410 students and new graduate students with limited (or no) 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. Please inform new students in your lab who may not be on this mailing list.

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,
enrolment is limited, so please register soon!
