Title: “Translational diffusion studies by NMR”
Day: Thursday, March 2th, 2017
18:30 h, Sala de Conferencias QUIFIMA
The use of the pulsed field gradient spin-echo to measure diffusion coefficients will be explained in detail. The general concepts of diffusion and molecular structure will be introduced with examples of the application of diffusion NMR to determine size, analyze mixtures or study intermolecular interactions. Application of diffusion NMR under HR-MAS to study heterogeneous samples will be explored.
