NMR is an abbreviation of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance. It involes with 3 parts;

          Nuclear => nucleus (including proton & neutron)

          Magnetic => external magnetic field

          Resonance => resonance effect


NMR spectroscopy is an absorption process that involes spinning of nuclei in an external magnetic field. It has many advantages such as;

           allocating particular atoms in a molecule
           structural indentification
           measuring ratio of components in a mixture

           defining relative configuration


              1. Students understand and can explain magnetic properties of nuclei and effects of external magnetic field on magnetic properties correctly.

              2. Students understand and can explain nuclear magnetic resonance correctly.

              3. Students understand principle of both continuous-wave and Fourier Transform NMR spectrometers correctly.
