NANS7004 Methods for the Characterization of Supramolecular Complexes (JSS29) (2 cr)
Practical aspects for characterization of intermolecular interactions in supramolecular complexes using spectroscopic techniques and isothermal titration calorimetry. The topics include geometrical characterization of complex structures (mainly NMR experiements), thermodynamic characterization (spectroscopic titrations and isothermal titration calorimetry), and kinetic characterizarion (fast and slow exchange binding processes on the NMR timescales, EXSY, complete bandshape analysis). During practical sessions example data is processed and analysed using freely available software, therefore, bringing your own laptop is recommended. Participants are invited to bring their own samples or data for measurement and analysis during practical sessions (optional).
Lectures and practical sessions, and assigned homework (80 %).
