Introductory NMR workshop, Oct. 13-14, 2012

The NMR faciltiy is offering an Introductory Workshop for incoming Graduate Students and Outstanding Scholars on Thursday October 13 and Friday the 14th, 2011 from 1 until 4 pm each day. Please note that this is the week of the Thanksgiving Holiday and most lab sessions are cancelled that week.

This introductory workshop is geared toward undergraduate students and/or 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 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 link to register is on the NMR Facility Web site.

The workshop is free of charge to members of the Dept. of Chemistry and Biochemistry; however, enrollment is limited, so please register soon!
