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 to 10 participants. The participation is free of charge.

Basic NMR knowledge is required to participate in the practical sessions (comprising hands-on experiments and exercises). To pre-register please send an e-mail to by the 31st of July, mentioning briefly: a) Past studies involving the use of NMR, b) Future studies expected to involve the use of ssNMR (not mandatory). All the applicants will be informed before the 15th of September regarding the application results.
Successful applicants will have the opportunity to present and discuss their ongoing research work.
This course is supported by an IST-Cimpor project, CQE and PTNMR.
