Damodaran will be presenting a short course on Sat Mar 16 from 8"30-5 at Pittcon 2019 in Philadelphia. From the conference:
Practical NMR Spectroscopy
8:30am - 5:00pm
Sat, Mar 16
In this course, you will learn the fundamentals of NMR spectroscopy that will help you better understand commonly used and advanced 1D and 2D NMR experiments, both in routine analytical work and in scientific research. Emphasis will be given on practical aspects of NMR spectroscopy. You will also learn the tips and tricks to obtain the best out of your spectrometer. Overall, this course will prepare you to engage the NMR spectrometer and run experiments with confidence.
Instructor: Damodaran Achary
Target Audience: Either you are new to the field or you want to further your understanding of NMR spectroscopy, this is the course that will provide that training for you.
