Placement procedure-
After successfully completing the course you will:
  • be able to analyse magnetic resonance spectra on the basis of the quantum mechanical as well as the classical description of magnetic resonance.
  • have acquired some basic skill in carrying out NMR measurements and gained some basic understanding of NMR spectrometer operation.
  • be acquainted with the various fields within magnetic resonance and be able to indicate the relevant interactions and specific experiments and characteristics for each field.
Magnetic resonance techniques have a broad range of application in chemistry, physics, biochemistry materials science and medicine This lecture course covers the basics of magnetic resonance spectroscopy as well as applications of this important technique. First, the theoretical framework of magnetic resonance is covered in the lectures. The theory is covered both from a classical as well as the quantummechanical viewpoint The practical part is intended to illustrate the material covered in the lectures and workshops. After the theoretical framework is covered, various fields within magnetic resonance are discussed among which are: solid state NMR, electron spin resonance, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and biomolecular NMR, as well as applications in organic and inorganic chemistry.

Instructional Modes

Presumed foreknowledge
MR in Chemistry (NWI-MOL108) and Chemical analysis (NWI-MOL001). This is a course in the theme 'Methods'.
Test information
Written exam (80%), computer practical and report (10%) and practical work and report (10%). Each of the 3 components have to be passed individually in order to pass the entire course.
There is a maximum of 36 participants.

In the case of not being able to attend one or more practical courses/lab days due to corona measures, the course coordinator will decide if the student is obligated to re-take the missed meeting and how this will take place.
