[NMR] Olivier Lafon | 8th DNP/NMR Educational Tutorial on June 26 #DNPNMR

Dear NMR Enthusiast,

The 8th Educational Tutorial will be given by Prof. Olivier Lafon from Univ. Lille on the topic:

“NMR observation of quadrupolar nuclei and their neighbors in solids”.

Here are the webinar details:

Topic: DNP/NMR Educational Tutorial

Time: Friday, June 26, 2020, 08:30 AM California or 5:30 PM Paris or 9:00 PM Delhi

Join Meeting: https://ucsb.zoom.us/j/95617252728

Meeting ID: 956 1725 2728

Abstract:

Quadrupolar nuclei with nuclear spin I ≥ 1, including 27Al, 17O or 35Cl, represent 75% of NMR-active nuclei and their NMR observation is useful for the characterization of catalysts, energy materials, pharmaceuticals, etc. This tutorial will present the main experimental approaches used for acquiring NMR spectra of quadrupolar nuclei in solids and probing the covalent bonds and the spatial proximities between these isotopes and nearby nuclei.

[NMR] ssNMR and DNP Educative Tutorials, First one on May 8 #DNPNMR

Dear NMR Enthusiast,

We all know that being a research student in this unusual, COVID-19 affected, time period is stressful and a source of a lot of uncertainty. Apart, from working from home and not being able to go to the lab to continue our experiments, a very important drawback is our inability to learn through fruitful discussions, share our research, talk about what we are passionate about with our colleagues, and meet with new and old friends, since a lot of the conferences we like to be part of are either cancelled or postponed until further notice.

Therefore, following similar initiatives, we would like to propose some (bi)weekly Educative Tutorials about basic concepts of NMR with some flavors of latest research, which will be held online via ZOOM, and their purpose will be to give the opportunity to young scientists to learn, to ask their questions, and to have a constructive dialog with their fellow NMR spectroscopists. For the moment, the tutorials will be focused on ssNMR and DNP.

Our first speaker will be Dr. Monu Kaushik, who is currently a post-doctoral researcher in Prof. Anne Lesage’s lab at CRMN Lyon. Monu will talk about fundamentals of DNP and recent developments. The current format of the presentation will consist of a 40 minutes talk which will include both basic and advanced material and 20 minutes of discussion.

We hope that in the future more or you would be willing to be a part of this initiative so please do not hesitate to contact us in order to present your favorite topic. Also, we would really appreciate it if you forward this email to any of your colleagues and NMR friends that might be interested. 

A full list of the topics covered will be shared with you shortly.

Details about the ZOOM link and time:

Topic: Global NMR Discussion Zoom-Meeting

Time: Friday, May 8, 2020, 08:30 AM California time or 5:30 PM Paris time

Password: 094324

Since, this is a nascent idea at the moment, we would be happy to receive any suggestions and feedback on the amount of talks given per session, the duration of the talks, and topics that you would be interested in hearing about in the future.

[NMR] “NMR and industry” meeting postponed to Spring 2021

Dear colleagues,

We hope that you and your friends and families are all well.

In light of the covid-19 outbreak, we have decided, together with French high-field NMR infrastructure (IR-RMN) and NMR in Paris Basin network, to postpone the 5th meeting “NMR and industry”, which was supposed to be held on June 15th, 2020, to Spring 2021.

This meeting will be organized in Paris. The exact date will be announced soon. We hope that in spite of the adjournment of this meeting, you will be able to attend it.

Please contact us if you require additional information.

Take care of yourself.

[NMR] International School for Young Scientists on Magnetic Resonance and Magnetic Phenomena

Dear colleagues,

We cordially invite you to participate in the VI International School for Young Scientists: Magnetic Resonance and Magnetic Phenomena in Chemical and Biological Physics, which will be held in Roshchino, St. Petersburg (Leningrad) region, Russia on September 5-10, 2020. 

The scope of the school is relatively broad, and its key purpose is to present interconnected topics in NMR and EPR spectroscopy in a form that underlines their fundamental similarity. Currently in several areas of research the two spectroscopies interconnect, thus building up new promising approaches, of which, probably, hyperpolarization and paramagnetic NMR are the most known and broadly used examples. We intend approaching the basic mechanisms responsible for the polarization transfer from electrons to nuclei both from NMR and EPR side. Similarities and differences in electron and nuclear relaxation and dipolar interactions will be in the focus of this school, as well.

The school includes lectures and tutorials on pulsed EPR, pulsed NMR, spin hyperpolarization and spin chemistry, including chemically induced spin polarization. A feature of the School is to approach these apparently different topics within a common theoretical framework, with the intention to obtain deeper understanding of spin dynamics of coupled electron-nuclear systems. Another aim of the School is to provide the participants with systematic knowledge of the mechanisms of the action of pulse sequences commonly used in modern EPR and NMR. We will also discuss in depth the interplay of electron and nuclear spins in modern EPR and NMR experimental methods. Furthermore, effects of electron and nuclear spins on chemical reactivity, playing a major role in spin chemistry, will be considered.

The program will include lectures and practical tutorials. The composition of the program will allow the participants to learn how to describe spin dynamics in pulse EPR and NMR experiments and, ultimately, to design novel magnetic resonance experiments. The meeting will be limited to 50 participants (not counting lecturers). The working language is English.

Registration deadline is 1 June 2020. Registration fee is 200 Euro for foreign participants and 12000 Roubles for Russian participants, which covers participation in all scientific sessions, coffee-breaks, welcome party, conference materials, cultural program, breakfast and lunch. For AMPERE members the fee is reduced.

The teachers are:

Christian Griesinger (Göttingen, Germany) 

Leonid Kulik (Novosibirsk, Russia)

Olivier Lafon (Lille, France)

P. K. Madhu (Hyderabad, India)

Kiminori Maeda (Saitama, Japan) 

Valentin Novikov (Moscow, Russia)

Maxim Yulikov (Zurich, Switzerland)

More information is available at the web-site of the School: http://roshchino2020.tomo.nsc.ru/

Please encourage your young colleagues to participate in this event.

Sincerely yours,

Prof. Konstantin Ivanov, co-chairmanProf. Leonid Kulik, co-chairman
