Practical Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Theory
Tuesday, Thursday 11:00 am
W. Milo Westler Rm 2221 Biochemical sciences
The lecture notes are available as PDF files.
The class is held in Biochem 2221 in the DeLuca Biochemical Sciences Building.
Scope of the course: study of multipulsed, multinuclear, and
multidimensional NMR spectroscopy; emphasis on the vector and product
formalisms for the analysis of modern pulse sequences.
Course format: (2 credits) lecture and
grades to be based on participation and problem sets.
Topics to be covered:
The Vector Paradigm
Coherence and Magnetization
Radio Frequency (Rf) Excitation
Coherence Transfer Pathways and Phase Cycling
Pulsed Field Gradients
Product Operator Formalism
Isotope Directed Editing
Multi (>2)-Dimensional NMR
1H, 13C, and 15N Triple Resonance 3d and 4d NMR
Pulse Concatenation and Sequence Optimization
Prerequisites: introductory NMR (e.g. organic
basic trigonometry, elementary physics, and physical chemistry.
Course materials: lecture notes and literature articles
