Description

About This Course Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) phenomenon is currently exploited for many purposes, including medical imaging using the MRI technique but also 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.

Important information

Requirements: 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.
