Monday, 5th September 2016
Cottrell Building, University of Stirling, Stirling FK9 4LF


Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is a non-destructive, fast and highly informative technique. It is an essential analytical method for chemical, material and biological science.

This workshop brings together experts using NMR with industry companies to explore the different NMR techniques available and provide information about how to access NMR facilities in Scotland.

It is aimed at industrialists who are keen to learn more about NMR spectroscopy and to understand what the technique can do for their businesses, and will:

  • provide an opportunity to learn more about liquid- and  solid-state NMR, including a practical demonstration of a benchtop NMR instrument;
  • demonstrate a range of applications of NMR for industrial settings; and
  • establish contacts between Scottish NMR laboratories and industry.

This event will be of interest if your company is working in any of the following sectors:

  • Chemical research and development (e.g. organic, inorganic and physical chemistry)
  • Chemical manufacturing industry
  • Biological and biochemical research (incl, natural products, proteins, protein interactions, carbohydrates, etc.)
  • Food and beverage industry
  • Pharmaceutical development and production
  • Agrochemical development and production
  • Polymer industry
  • Metabolomics
  • Water and environmental pollutant industry
  • Catalyst industry
  • Forensics (e.g. legal high analysis)
  • Energy materials (e.g. solid fuel cells)
