Chem 863, Spring, 2005

Felix Bloch

Edward Purcell


Wutrich's Nobel lecture (protein structure determination)

These links will download the windows version of the spin NMR simulation program, its operating instructions and a sample input file. (You don't need this if you are going to use interactive input.)


The official outline has been successfully hidden by the registrar's new computer system.

What we are actually doing, is Chapters 1-4 of the text, about as presented, Chapters 6 & 7 in more detail than the text, little of Chapter 5, and almost none of Chapter 8.

Grading will be based on problems sets (10%), mid-term (20%) and final exam (70%).


The following texts are one level more advanced than Harris, and are good for additional information:

A. Abragam, The Principles of Nuclear Magnetism.

C. P. Slichter, Principles of Magnetic Resonance.

R. R. Ernst, G. Bodenhausen & A. Wokaun, Principles of NMR in One and Two Dimensions.

Web Materials

There are lots on NMR materials on the web. Here is a small selection of links:
