Introduction to solid-state MAS NMR


Solid-state NMR is an attractive tool to elucidate structures and dynamics of solids at an atomic level. Unlike diffraction-based methods, solid-state NMR doesn't require long-range periodic structures, thus is able to analyze virtually all the solids including amorphous, glass, mixtures, micro-crystals, etc.
In this webinar, we will introduce a set of building blocks of solid-state NMR to understand basics: MAS(magic angle spinning), CP(cross polarization), 1H decoupling. Several typical applications will be introduced to demonstrate the capability of solid-state NMR. Lastly, practical tips in solid-state NMR like sample packing etc. will be discussed.

This seminar will be distributed online. As far as you can connect to internet, you can participate in the seminar from your computer as well as from your smartphone or tablet. We look forward to your participation.
