VTechWorks staff will be away for the Thanksgiving holiday beginning at noon on Wednesday, November 22, through Friday, November 24, and will not be replying to requests during this time. Thank you for your patience, and happy holidays!
The development of laboratory sessions for a introductory course in nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy
The history and philosophy underlying the design of the
experimental component of an intensive introductory course in
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR) is presented.
The concept of a " hands on " experience is used to transform
the complete NMR novice into a competent operator. In addition to
exposing the student to classical elucidation tools, advanced
techniques, such as two dimensional and solid state NMR, are
introduced. Through the use of unknowns, participants are
encouraged to develop practical problem solving strategies.
The detailed contents of the twenty-six experiments developed
for the laboratory sessions are reviewed. The five day course
schedule, and a coversheet, containing pertinent references for each
experiment, is included. An examination of the unknowns utilized in
the course, and a glossary of NMR terms is also presented.
