About the course

The course deals with the following aspects of NMR spectroscopy:

  • Fundamentals of the NMR phenomenon, relationship between NMR spectra and molecular structure. Recording of routine spectra (1H and 13C), essentials of data processing, e.g. weighting functions
  • 1D NMR techniques: decoupling, DEPT, relaxation measurement, magnetisation transfer, NOE difference spectra
  • 2D NMR techniques: Homo- and heteronuclear correlation (COSY, TOCY, HSQC, HMBC), measurement of the nuclear Overhauser effect (NOESY, ROESY)

Emphasis is on learning the practical use of NMR equipment.
