Module content and teaching

Principal aims

"Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) in both solution and the solid state as well as electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) will be described. The course will cover the underlying theory of the experiments as well as practical aspects of recording spectra and their interpretation. The importance of magnetic resonance across science, in e.g., organic chemistry, pharmaceuticals and proteins will be demonstrated."

Principal learning outcomes

Demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the physical basis for magnetic resonance experiments and the role of the different elements of spectrometer hardware; Critically analyse NMR spectra and hence identify the structure of small to moderately sized organic molecules, using relevant databases and prediction programs; Appreciate the wide applicability of magnetic resonances techniques; Communicate verbally and in writing; Demonstrate numeracy; Independently select and use relevant databases and prediction programs; Extract and present key information from the primary scientific literature (i.e., a recent article in a high-ranking journal); Manage time effectively to perform independent research work; Critically analyse data; Comprehensively assess ambiguities in experimental data; Use judgement to interpret spectra so as to extract chemical information; Produce clearly written and original scientific reports. Extract and orally present key information from the primary scientific literature. (i.e., a recent article in a high-ranking journal).

Timetabled teaching activities

40 contact hours (inlcuding lectures, seminars and laboratory sessions).
