Theoretical and practical sessions on Solid-State NMR (ssNMR)

Theoretical and practical sessions on Solid-State NMR (ssNMR) will take place from the 15th to the 17th of October 2014. The main goal of this initiative is to improve the knowledge of target ssNMR applications such as Chemistry, Materials Science and Pharmaceutical Science. Lectures will be given by Prof. Robin K. Harris (Emeritus Professor in the Department of Chemistry, Durham University, UK). An introduction to ssNMR spectroscopy will precede these sessions. Theoretical sessions will take place at “Anfiteatro Abreu Faro” (“Complexo Interdisciplinar”) and will be open to everyone. Practical sessions are however limited…Read more
