Semester of Instruction

Autumn (limited capacity). Master students have priority.

Objectives and Content

This course gives a simple introduction to basic NMR theory, a thorough introduction to practical modern pulse/FT NMR spectroscopy for liquids. Experimental set-up and accomplishment of a series of 1- and 2-dimensional experiments will be covered in exercises in a modern NMR laboratory. For the 2-dimensional NMR experiments, homonuclear and heteronuclear scalar couplings or homonuclear dipolar couplings will be used. The theory of some of the corresponding pulse sequences will also be illustrated.

Learning Outcomes

After completing the course KJEM251 the student will be able to:

  • define and explain the relevant terms and models used in basic NMR theory
  • analyze NMR pulse sequences using this basic NMR theory
  • execute basic 1-and 2-dimentional proton and carbon experiments on a standard NMR spectrometer
  • interpret 1- and 2-dimentional NMR spectra from simple organic compounds

Recommended Previous Knowledge
