MOOC : Nuclear Magnetic Resonance a Compass to Nanoworld - session 3
Informations pratiques sur le MOOC
Description du MOOC
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) phenomenon is currently exploited for many purposes, including medical imaging using the MRI technique but also the characterization of the structure and the dynamics of matter at atomic scale by NMR spectroscopy, which is a key tool in chemistry, structural biology, pharmacology and material sciences. NMR is also employed for oil exploration or the inspection of artworks.
This online course, entitled Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, a compass for the nanoworld, aims at providing students and professionals the basic knowledge about Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) and an overview of its applications. With the aim of developing the subject from the beginning, this course sets out the fundamental principles of NMR.

- Public visé :
This course is intended for undergraduate and graduate students as well as educators and professionals who want to learn the basic concepts of NMR and discover its major applications. This multi-disciplinary course will appeal to students and professionals with background in chemistry, physics, material sciences, pharmacology, medicine and Earth sciences.
- Attendus du MOOC :
Students should have a background in basic chemistry, including:
- the atoms, the elements and the periodic table
- the structure of organic molecules (functional groups, stereochemistry)
as well as in basic physics, including some knowledge about the spectroscopy (energy levels, photon, frequency) and the magnetism.
At the end of the course, you will know about the commonly used NMR experiments and the interpretation of the NMR spectra of solutions and solids. This course will notably highlight the usefulness of NMR spectroscopy for the characterization of organic molecules, proteins, sugars and advanced materials.
