The purpose of the course is to teach students the fundaments of Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. It is designed for NMR users to be able to use NMR spectroscopy for the solution of their own scientific projects, i.e. to choose a proper NMR experiment, to set it up on an NMR spectrometer, process the results and interpret the spectra. The course is divided into three sections, the first one is about physical background of NMR, the second one is devoted to the interpretation of NMR spectra and the last one should help students to orient themselves in numerous applications of NMR spectroscopy. Students must work out their own projects to be able to pass the course.
Aim of the course -
