Nuclear Magnetic Resonance and the Fundamental Concept of Molecular Structure is a research project which is the first part of an effort by the St. Kate’s Chemistry Department to reframe the laboratory curriculum around four fundamental concepts: structure mass, energy and chance. It engages chemistry majors minoring in STEM in the idea of structure through lab experiences that illustrate the interrelatedness of concepts across their coursework. As a result of this research project, students gain hands-on experience with the analytical techniques offered by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and connect the relevance of NMR to practical problems.
This project is funded by the National Science Foundation and St. Catherine University donors.
