Solid State NMR:Concepts, Applications, Hands on
Theoretical and practical sessions on Solid-State NMR (ssNMR) will take place from the 15th to the 17th of October 2014. The main goal of this initiative is to improve the knowledge of target ssNMR applications such as Chemistry, Materials Science and Pharmaceutical Science. Lectures will be given by Prof. Robin K. Harris (Emeritus Professor in the Department of Chemistry, Durham University, UK). An introduction to ssNMR spectroscopy will precede these sessions.
Theoretical sessions will take place at “Anfiteatro Abreu Faro” (“Complexo Interdisciplinar”) and will be open to everyone. Practical sessions are however limited to 10 participants. Attendance is free of charge.

The main mission of the Portuguese Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Network (PTNMR) is to provide to the scientific community with access to modern and up-to-date NMR spectrometers, housed in scientific institutions with competence and scientific expertise on the use of this type of equipment. The Portuguese NMR network was created with the support of the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT) in the frame of a national programme for acquisition and upgrading of scientific equipment. This programme promotes the networking of scientific laboratories. These networks are expected to stimulate the use of advanced facilities by Portuguese researchers and the sharing of the national scientific resources. The following laboratories are part of the Portuguese NMR Network:
