Basics of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (FUN)
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) phenomenon is currently exploited for many purposes, including medical imaging using the MRI technique as well as the characterization of the structure and the dynamics of matter at atomic scale by NMR spectroscopy, which is a key tool in chemistry, structural biology, pharmacology and material sciences. NMR is also employed for oil exploration or the inspection of artworks. "Basics of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance" is the first course of a comprehensive three-part online learning programme on NMR.

It aims at providing students and professionals the basic knowledge about NMR. The MOOC sets out the principles of solution-state NMR as well as one- and two-dimensional 1H and 13C NMR experiments and their application on small organic molecules in solution.




At the end of the course, you will know how this technique can be employed to determine the structure of small organic molecules in solution (including stereochemical aspects), or to evaluate their purity.

This course is intended for undergraduate and graduate students as well as educators and professionals who need to gain proficiency as routine users of NMR spectroscopy of organic molecules in solution. This multi-disciplinary course will appeal to students and professionals with background in chemistry, physics, material sciences, pharmacology, medicine and Earth sciences.


Prerequisites

Students should have a background in basic chemistry, including: (i) the atoms, the elements and the periodic table; (ii) the structure of organic molecules (functional groups, stereochemistry); as well as in basic physics, including some knowledge about the spectroscopy (energy levels, photon, frequency) and the magnetism.
