NMR Week 3

This week mainly involved reading about NMR theory (in particular about expected locations of spectral peaks). The aim of this reading was to help me to identify which spectral peaks derived from which bonds in the molecule. To enable this to be done in a logical manner I have started to number the different bonds of each molecule, noting which bonds appear in more than one sample (which should be able to be identified from the spectra also). One spectra was collected and I observed a double quantum spectra, which provides information on distances between atoms.

On Thursday Amy went away for a week so I am left to run some simulations. During Thursday and Friday I read up on the background material and theory required for me to properly understand the workings of the simulations and how all of the parameters correspond to a real situation. I know I started a little on this reading last week, but after three years of not having to read much I find that it’s quite a slow process! It certainly is a change from labs when you’re more or less given all of the information you will need.


Thursday also meant Craft Day at WSAF during which I made a hat for the monkey that is perched over my desk:

I’ll take some proper science-related photos at some point.
