CHE 439: Advanced NMR Methods for Identification of Natural Products

NMR Course

A general NMR course featuring all basics of NMR such as shift, couplings, relaxation and product operator formalism. The course is intended to give an in-depth introduction into the basics of NMR. Additional material covering topics such as vectors and tensors is provided. The script is available as a PDF file.

Spectra Interpretaion Course

A spectra interpretation course. This course is given for people who have to identify compounds (especially natural products) using 2D NMR experiments. All classes of natural compounds are extensively covered with shift and coupling information. In addition, the best strategy to identify each class of compounds and the optimal choice of experiments to achieve that goal is described. The experiments are described briefly. Again, a script covering the content of the course is available.
