Jeffrey Reimers gives a talk at the ICAM 2007 conference about aromatic spectroscopy, porphyrins and chlorophylls, density functional theory, and exciton coupling in PS-I.

Fast Characterization of Functionalized Silica Materials by Silicon-29 Surface-Enhanced NMR Spectroscopy Using Dynamic Nuclear Polarization

submitted by: emsley
We demonstrate fast characterization of the distribution of surface bonding modes and interactions in a series of functionalized materials via surface-enhanced nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy using dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP). Surface-enhanced silicon-29 DNP NMR spectra were obtained by using incipient wetness impregnation of the sample with a solution containing a polarizing radical (TOTAPOL). We identify and compare the bonding topology of functional groups in materials...

The Spectral Game: Learning spectroscopy using open data

submitted by: jcbradley
Jean-Claude Bradley presents on the Spectral Game at the American Chemical Society meeting in Washington, DC on August 17, 2009. The talk provides an overview of how openness in both teaching and research can help generate new educational resources, especially for teaching NMR. At the end Antony Williams says a few words about the Spectral Game project and the ChemSpider database which powers it via Open Data JCAMP-DX spectral depositions. The other developers of the game are Andrew Lang...
