  Abstract     Presentation   Back to Program    

The application of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy in science and technology increases every day since NMR showed to be fast, precise and extremely sensitive analytical method. Wide-line and pulse NMR spectroscopy can be used for monitoring of chemical changes. The first technique enables determination of solid to liquid ratio and content of moisture/water and fat in samples, while the second one may give precise and detailed information on chemical structure and its changes. The analysis of NMR spectral parameters: chemical shifts, coupling constants and relaxation times give qualitative and quantitative data on composition as well as details of structure (types of chemical groups and bonds, their spatial arrangement and orientation, flexibility etc.) of compounds present in samples. In these work we will introduce first internet based NMR course which will start with the fundamentals in NMR spectroscopy. All lectures will be encoded and held on Internet in AVI/DivX format.
