New this year: submit an abstract for NMR is Fun Quick Talks section – let us know how you’ve used NMR in a creative or interesting way!

If you send us your Mnova host ID by June 1, we will request the demo license for you.  (You need your own license to use Mnova during the processing workshops – you may not use the McGill site license.)

Registration IS NOW CLOSED


Each day features a hands-on workshop on data processing.  Bring your own laptop with TopSpin or Mnova installed and learn to get the most out of your data.  Day 1 is about processing and plotting basic 1D and 2D data for structure validation or elucidation, while Day 2 uses more advanced examples.

You must have an NMR processing program installed and activated to participate.  TopSpin is free and readily available.  Mnova requires a license – you must request a demo license from Robin before June 1 or from the Mnova site.  The McGill site license is not sufficient because only 8 people can use it at once.

NMR is Fun Quick Talks

You are invited to present some interesting and/or useful piece of NMR you’ve used – whether it was structure elucidation where you used an HMBC for the first time, quantitative NMR where you had to measure T1, or simply an unusual chemical shift that you needed a while to figure out, your colleagues would benefit from learning about your experience.  The quick talks are intended to be informal and you don’t need to present an entire research project.  Just show a spectrum or two and help us all to understand better how NMR can be fun.
