Seminar - Paramagnetic NMR shift and relaxation enhancement: role of magnetic anisotropy in lanthanide and transition metal complexes

Presented By Dr Elizaveta Suturina (University of Bath)

About this event


Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) of paramagnetic metal complexes is a highly informative but challenging technique. In my talk I will discuss latest advancements in theoretical analysis of complex pNMR spectra and new models for paramagnetic relaxation enhancement that account for the effects of zero-field splitting.
