About the Workshop


Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy and High Resolution Mass Spectrometry (HR-MS) are the two indispensable techniques routinely used by synthetic chemists for structure elucidation. While reporting a new molecule, usually one-dimensional NMR data of both proton and carbon spectra are reported. However, the increasing complexity of newly synthesized compounds and their derivatives demands the use of recent 2D and other advanced NMR techniques.
HR-MS offers both high resolution and high mass accuracy and is a powerful tool for the analysis and quantitation of compounds, determination of elemental compositions, and identification of unknowns. HR-MS allows detection of analytes to the nearest 0.001 atomic mass units. Time of flight (TOF) and Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance (FTICR), which forms the basis of the orbitrap technology, are the methods that offers significantly higher resolution and larger dynamic range. Generally, these instruments measure the exact mass of analytes without fragmentation, however, they can be combined with a quadrupole, in which case fragmentation is also possible and can add more accuracy and selectivity to the method.

The purpose of this one-week workshop is to describe the main application of 1H, 13C and 15N NMR features of complex organic and inorganic compounds and to discuss the application of 1D and mainly 2D NMR techniques in the structure elucidation of these compounds. Also, the workshop is indented to cover the range of capabilities of advanced NMR and HR-MS instruments. Hence, the workshop will provide an avenue for the Research Scholars and Postgraduate students from academia and experts from industries to interact with each other and to create a sound awareness on the various advanced topics pertaining to the NMR and HR-MS.

Calicut


Calicut, also known as Kozhikode, is a blooming city in the region of Malabar, lying in the northern part of Kerala. This region is a major knowledge hub of Kerala and it proudly hosts many institutions of national eminence such as NITC, IIMK, NIELIT, CWRDM, Kerala School of Mathematics, IISR etc. Calicut is well connected by rail/road/air to major cities in India. Apart from the serene beaches on the west and the high ranges of the Western Ghats on the east, there are many landmark places that attract attention of the tourists. NITC is 22 km off the city limits towards east.
