About the Course
Use one- and two-dimensional NMR spectroscopy to elucidate the structure of small molecule unknowns. Explore the fundamentals of sample preparation, solvent choice, pulse sequence selection, parameter optimization, data processing options, and data interpretation of one- and two-dimensional homo- and heteronuclear experiments.
Each of the NMR experiments listed in the agenda will be discussed in detail. Data interpretation will include a discussion of various NMR software (i.e., ACD, TOPSPIN, VNMR, Mnova) and analysis using plotted spectra. Data sets will be analyzed using three formats during the course: instructor led analysis, individual/small group problem sets, and independent analysis of NMR problem sets.
