RSC NMRDG logoUK NMR Discussion Group

Welcome to the events pages of the UK NMR Discussion Group (NMRDG), an Interest Group of the Royal Society of Chemistry.

This site holds information on our forthcoming meetings and also hosts the history of NMRDG activities, from its inception in 1964 to the present day. Some further, related information can be found on the RSC site.

A short summary of NMRDG events in 2015 and 2016 can be downloaded.

Recent/past meeting(s) 

10th Annual NMRDG Postgraduate Meeting

The meeting report is available.

As usual, presentation and scientific standards were very high. Tasked with the difficult job of choosing the best speakers and poster, the judges made these selections.

Best oral presentation

Michael Hope, University of Cambridge, "Surface Selective 17O DNP NMR of CeO2 nanoparticles"

Runner up: Giulia Bignami, University of St Andrews, "Synthesis and Solid-state NMR Characterisation of ADORable Zeolites"

Best poster presentation

Vanessa Timmermann, University of Manchester, "Evaluating the solution structure of uranium (IV) DOTA-type complexes by 1H NMR spectroscopy"

Runners up

Nick Brownbill, University of Liverpool, "17O DNP Enhanced Solid-state NMR Spectroscopy at 18.8T"

James Montgomery, University of St Andrews, "Fractionation and DOSY NMR as Analytical Tools: From Model Polymers to a Technical Lignin"

 Matthew Wallace, University of Liverpool, "Titrations without the additions: The rapid measurement of pKas using NMR imaging techniques"

Thanks to all who took part, and a special congratulation to our winners.

 

NMRDG Spring meeting: the meeting talks will become available soon.

Items of interest

A successful meeting on Pure Shift NMR was held by the Morris group at Manchester University (September 2017). Most of the talks are available to view, as well as the materials that the Manchester team makes available. This will help you to perform the experiments that they have published. Please see their website.


The 2017 Shoolery Annual Prize Announcement

Prof James Keeler of Cambridge University has been recognised for his outstanding contribution to small-molecule NMR. He was awarded the 2017 Shoolery Prize by the SMASH Committee. Visit his group's web site for an overview of his exceptional work! Congratulations to "one of our own" for this well-deserved recognition of exceptional work.


ThThe 2018 BRSG-NMRDG Annual Prize

The NMRDG is inviting nominations for the 2018 BRSG – NMR DG prize. Details of the nomination procedure, including eligibility, are provided.

The 2017 BRSG – NMR DG annual prize for excellent contribution to magnetic resonance was awarded to Frédéric Blanc, University of Liverpool, for research activities concerning integration of solid-state NMR methods in the discovery of a range of challenging new materials.  In particular, Frédéric has made significant contributions to the field of DNP enhanced solid-state NMR; his work has shown that the DNP MAS NMR approach allows efficient, time-effective and high-throughput characterization of libraries of porous polymers. In conjunction with this, he has demonstrated that high signal-to-noise ratio solid-state NMR spectra of insensitive nuclei (such as 17O at natural abundance or low-gamma 89Y) can be obtained extremely rapidly with DNP, giving new insights into the structure of selected functional materials.
