Syllabus
Prerequisites: Good understanding of organic chemistry and basic concepts of NMR spectroscopy and mass spectrometry
Target skills and knowledge: Advanced NMR and mass spectrometry methodologies.
Examination methods: Written test
Assessment criteria: Evaluation is based on understanding the topics presented, on the ability to apply them to the identification of unknown substances and on the ability to select the most appropriate technique for the characterization of organic molecules and macromolecules.
Course unit contents: - Nuclear Magnetic Resonance: Magnetic properties of nuclei. Operating principles, instrumentation. Pulsed Fourier-transform techniques. Acquisition parameters. Relaxation. Chemical and magnetic equivalence. First-order and higher-order spectra. Diastereotopism 13C-NMR spectroscopy. Nuclear Overhauser effect. Homo and heteronuclear correlation NMR spectroscopy with reference to the pulse sequences.
- Mass spectrometry: Summary of basic principles. Chemical ionization, atmospheric pressure ionization (ESI, APCI, APPI), laser desorption ionization (MALDI and AP-MALDI), ambient mass spectrometry (DESI-MS and DART-MS). Summary of mass analyzers with examples of applications. Tandem mass spectrometry (CID, UVPD, IRMPD, ECD, ETD). Mass Spectrometry in proteomics and in metabolomics. Mass Spectrometry of oligonucleotydes, oligosaccharides and non-covalent complexes. Ion mobility mass spectrometry.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Classroom lessons
Additional notes about suggested reading: Lecture notes and handouts.
