Structure by 2D NMR Information from 1D and 2D NMR experiments, overview of NMR experiments used for structural elucidation, Observables from homo-nuclear and hetero-nuclear 2D NMR experiments, identification of spin systems, establishing connectivity, mapping homo-nuclear and hetero-nuclear coupling constants, exploiting long-range hetero-nuclear coupling constants, determining fragments and connecting fragments, deriving the skeleton of the molecule, elucidating the structure of a saccharide molecule.
qNMR(Quantification by NMR): Introduction to qNMR, usage of qNMR, concentration and purity determination, calibration standard, practical aspects, importance of experimental conditions, integration and peak analysis, calculations to determine concentration and purity, a couple of practical examples.
FFC Relaxometer: The power of Fast Field Cycling NMR relaxometry as an analytical technique Introduction to Fast Field Cycling (FFC) as a low-field NMR technique  which allows the measurement of the T1 (or R1=1/T1) of a sample over a wide range of magnetic field strengths (from 10kHz to 40MHz) using just one instrument. How FFC finds application in many different sectors such as: MRI contrast agents, liquids in confined spaces (e.g. oil-bearing rocks and catalysts), electrolytes, proteins, batteries, foodstuff and plastic/polymers industry.
