Chemistry 627 Theory and Practice of NMR

(This was Chem 545, 542, 625 in previous years.)

NMR is arguably the most powerful analytical tool in modern chemical research. It encompasses a broad spectrum of techniques and information- from counting the number of protons in a molecule to determining 3-D structures and distances.

This class in intended to provide NMR training to all students (both undergraduate and graduate) who expect to use the NMR facility in their research. The class consists of lectures once a week, and individual instrument training. Typically, students require about 20 training sessions to complete training on basic experiments on all three spectrometers.

There is no prerequisite, but 1 semester of physical chemistry is suggested.

All classes will be held via Zoom from 1:00- 2:50 pm on Fridays.
