Title: Probing Structure and Dynamics of Molecules in Solids by NMR spectroscopy: A Spin I = 1 Journey
Date: Jan 28, 2008
Location: 3105 Etcheverry Hall
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy has been an invaluable tool in answering the questions of how atoms are arranged in molecules and how molecules transform in reactions. It has been predominantly used to study molecules in solution due to the high spectral resolution brought by fast random molecular motion. However, the wealth of information contained in the NMR spectra of solids is often greater, with the main challenge being how to extract the desired information. On this journey you will have an opportunity to gain closer insight into our philosophy and the approach we use to tailor new NMR experiments that are able to address questions related to solid materials, regardless of their complex nature.
