Nuclear magnetic resonance

CH-409

Lecturer(s) :

Emsley David Lyndon

Language:

English

Summary

Principles and practice of modern nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. NMR is today the most powerful spectroscopic method to determine the structure of molecules and materials, in physics, chemistry, biology or medicine.

Content

Principles of nuclear magnetism. Quantum description of magnetic resonance leading to the vector model. Interactions defining the spectrum: chemical shifts, scalar, dipolar and quadrupolar couplings. Time-domain spectroscopy by pulsed excitation: interaction with radiofrequency fields, coherence, precession, signal induction and the Fourier Tranform. Relaxation and the return to equilibrium. Polarization transfer. Multi-dimensional correlation spectroscopy. The Overhauser effect and confirmational analysis. Instrumentation and applications in modern chemistry.
