On October 21st, The SCI early career materials science committee, in partnership with UCL and the UK national facility for solid-state NMR are providing a free extensive workshop on the uses on NMR for materials analysis.

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) is a well-known technique in chemical analysis, however the extent to which it may be used to reveal insights into materials properties is often underestimated. Both traditional, and solid state NMR possess the capability to probe functional materials in ways other techniques may not.

This webinar will cover the use of NMR to study a wide range of materials, across fields such as formulations, energy materials, catalysts and carbon capture materials.

This workshop is a partnership between University College London, the UK high-field solid-state NMR facility, based at the University of Warwick and the Society of Chemical Industry's Early Career Materials Committee. Details on how to apply for NMR time at various institutions will be covered during this webinar.
