Herrankukkaro, Rymättylä, June 13-15, 2007.





 Book of Abstracts




It is our pleasure to welcome you to The 29th Finnish NMR Symposium in Rymättylä, June 13-15, 2007. The symposium will take place in Herrankukkaro, an old fishing locality in the Turku area's archipelago; now build for meetings and teambuilding events. The program will follow traditional trends with registration and opening ceremonies in the afternoon on Wednesday the 13th and closing in the early afternoon on Friday the 15th. In between the participants will enjoy the lectures, the poster sessions and exhibition as well as social happenings. The symposium is organized by Finnish NMR Discussion Group (FiD) of the Association of Finnish Chemical Societies together with the Instrument Centre of University of Turku and Åbo Akademi University.


The scientific programme will cover a broad range of topics in the NMR as always. This year we will concentrate on absolute configuration of small molecules, natural products and NMR in Pharmacy. In addition, there will be short oral communications from students, post-docs and industrial participants. A poster session together with exhibition is scheduled for Thursday afternoon, June 14th.

The 29th Symposium will especially focus on young researches, because the symposium is one of the best training forums for scientific oral contributions.  Therefore, in addition of a traditional poster prize (open to all poster contributions) there will be a prize for the best oral contributions of a student (< PhD) and a prize for a best structure solver in the workshop (see below).



Prof. Robin K. Harris (University of Durham):  Solid State NMR in Pharmacy

Dr. Lukas Oberer (Novartis Pharma AG): NMR in Pharmacy
and Natural Products


Prof. Guido F. Pauli (University of Illinois at Chicago): qHNMR Analysis of Composition and Stereochemistry of Natural Products

Dr. Dick Sandström (Bruker Biospin Scandinavia):  NMR Spectroscopy of Solid and Soft Materials

Besides, Dr. Oberer will organize a structure solving competition for students.  He will hand out a whole set of spectra of an unknown natural product, give useful hints and help (if necessary) the beginning of the structure elucidation. The competition is open for students only (< PhD). Those students interested in the competition, could you, please, mark it down in your registration form or inform Petri Ingman by e-mail. The best structure solver will be awarded.

The conference language is English.
