|529-0144-00L||NMR Spectroscopy in Inorganic Chemistry||7 credits||3G||R. Verel|
|Abstract||Theory and applications of NMR spectroscopy with a focus of its use to problems in Inorganic Chemistry.|
Topics include the use of the Bloch Equations to describe broadband and selective excitation, measurement techniques and processing strategies of NMR data, chemical exchange processes, diffusion spectroscopy, and solid-state NMR techniques.
|Objective||In depth understanding of both practical and theoretical aspects of solution and solid-state NMR and its application to problems in Inorganic Chemistry|
|Content||Selection of the following themes:|
1. Bloch Equations and its use to understand broadband and selective pulses.
2. Measurement techniques and processing strategies of NMR data.
3. Experiments and strategies to solve problems in Inorganic Chemistry.
4. Application of NMR to the study of chemical exchange processes.
5. Application of NMR to the study of self-diffusion and the determination of diffusion coefficients.
6. Differences and similarities between fundamental interactions in solution and solid-state NMR
7. Experimental techniques in solid-state NMR (Magic Angle Spinning, Cross Polarization, Decoupling and Recoupling Techniques, MQMAS)
8. The use of Dynamic Nuclear Polarization for the study of surfaces.
