Workshop: DOSY/Diffusion NMR and MRI

April 8th & 9th, 2014
  • basic science:
    • theory of Diffusion and assumptions that are made
    • using pulsed field gradient NMR to measure Diffusion
    • use of Diffusion to study molecules and create images
  • nuts & bolts:
    • calibration of gradients & temperature
    • DOSY experiment design
    • understanding sources of error in diffusion measurements
    • advanced DOSY processing & interpretation
    • reference deconvolution methods
  • applications:
    • diffusion-MR in neuroscience: imaging brain white matter
    • advanced and novel applications
    • DOSY studies of molecular size:
      mixtures, monomer/dimer/oligomer characterization,
      nanoparticle ligands, metal clusters
    • PFG-NMR diffusion studies of ionic liquids in Li-ion battery studies
  • hands-on instrument demos:
