The objective of the course is to teach the basic aspects of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, which is an important analytical tool in chemical and pharmaceutial industry for structural characterization of molecules. The topics to be covered will include one-dimensional NMR, Chemical shifts, J-coupling, Interpretation of 1D NMR spectrum, Basics of 2D NMR, Different 2D NMR experiments and their application/interpretation, Application of 2D NMR for assignment of molecules and peptides.
