529-0144-01LNMR Spectroscopy in Inorganic Chemistry6 KP3GR. Verel
KurzbeschreibungTheory and applications of NMR spectroscopy with a focus of its use to problems in Inorganic Chemistry.
The use of the Bloch Equations to describe broadband and selective excitation, measurement techniques and processing strategies of NMR data, applications of NMR to the study of molecular structure, chemical exchange processes, diffusion spectroscopy, and solid-state NMR techniques.
LernzielIn depth understanding of both practical and theoretical aspects of solution and solid-state NMR and its application to problems in Inorganic Chemistry
InhaltSelection of the following themes:
1. Bloch Equations and its use to understand broadband and selective pulses.
2. Measurement techniques and processing strategies of NMR data.
3. Applications of NMR to the study of molecular structure: Experiments and strategies to solve problems in Inorganic Chemistry.
4. Application of NMR to the study of chemical exchange processes.
5. Application of NMR to the study of self-diffusion and the determination of diffusion coefficients.
6. Differences and similarities between fundamental interactions in solution and solid-state NMR
7. Experimental techniques in solid-state NMR (Magic Angle Spinning, Cross Polarization, Decoupling and Recoupling Techniques, MQMAS)
8. The use of Dynamic Nuclear Polarization for the study of surfaces.
SkriptA handout is provided during the lectures. It is expected that the students will consult the accompanying literature as specified during the lecture.

(or equivalent)

The individual and in depth (literature) study of a theme related but separate from the themes presented during the lecture requires different compentences compared to the ones which are tested during the oral exam. Therefore the students must give a presentation during the semester about a theme based on their study of the literature. A list of possible themes and corresponding literature will be provided during the lecture.
The student presentation is a mandatory "pass/fail" element of the course and must be passed separately from the oral exam. If the presentation fails it will not be possible to pass the final exam. A renewed presentation is not required in case the oral exam has to be repeated.
