CHEM/BCMB 4190/6190/8189

Introductory NMR / Fundamentals of NMR

(Fall 2014)


Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) is a form of spectroscopy that uses the magnetic properties of nuclei to probe molecular structure. It has found applications in analysis of organic and inorganic compounds, in structure determination of biological macromolecules, and even in medical imaging. This introductory course is intended to serve a broad audience seeking a background in principles behind NMR methodology as well as a practical introduction to how data are acquired and analyzed. Material is presented partly in lecture and partly in laboratory formats. It is an ideal stepping-stone to more advanced courses offered in biomolecular NMR (CHEM/BCMB 8190) as well as other application-oriented courses.

The three courses share lecture and laboratory presentations. Grading is based on exams, written laboratory reports, and an evaluation of classroom and laboratory participation. For 8189, completion of an additional independent study project is required.
