Course objectives
Learning outcomes of the course aim the subject on the introduction of the student of DSP into nuclear magnetic resonance, with special focus on the identification of secondary metabolites of plants. The subject presents possibilities of using NMR and individual experiments in solving the structures of particular isolated compounds. Acquired knowledge will enable them to orientate in modern methods of NMR spectroscopy used in organic and inorganic chemistry, biochemistry and methods of modern structural analysis.
Learning outcomes
Understanding to theoretical bases of NMR and the ability to practically use available NMR techniques to elucidate the structure of organic compounds
  • Subject Physico-chemical Fundamentals of NMR is designed to introduce the techniques particularly 1H, 13C NMR spectroscopy, as powerful tools for structure elucidation of organic compounds. A brief introduction to the physical principles of NMR spectroscopy will be followed by extensive analysis and discussion of NMR parameters such as chemical shift, coupling constants, splitting patterns, etc. The second half of the course is dedicated to the use of multi-pulse experiments (spin decoupling, NOE, APT, INEPT, DEPT etc.) and 2-dimensional techniques (COSY, NOESY, ROESY, etc.) in structure elucidation of complex natural products.
