Mathcad Documents for Teaching NMR


These Mathcad documents were originally prepared during the NMR Concepts workshops at the University of Rhode Island, July 1995. They were refined for teaching advanced spectroscopy. These documents introduce many of the major concepts in NMR data acquisition and data processing. Because they are interactive, students may change parameters and observe their effect on the FID and the spectrum.

The Mathcad (mcd) documents may be downloaded, loaded directly into Mathcad by configuring it as a helper application, or viewed with Mathbrowser, a free interactive browser for Mathcad documents. This allows you to change variables and observe their effect on the graphs of the FID and the spectra. In addition Replica (*.rpl) electronic documents are provided to show printouts of the documents. Additional information on helper applications.
