Scope Of Training

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR) Spectroscopy –

The participants will experience hands-on training on handling of the Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR) Spectroscopy - With the development of powerful superconducting magnets, fast Fourier transform technique and computerization, NMR is now routinely used by chemists as well as biologist to solve the structures of molecules. The program is intended for PH.D. and Post-Doc students in chemistry and biology, young faculty members of colleges/ university departments and research scholars in chemistry/biology who use NMR in their research and in their course.

The schedule will consist of a lecture to start each day followed by hands-on learning sessions where participants will get the opportunity to collect and process NMR data. Experts from NMR will lead the lectures. 

This program focuses on the theory, instrumentation and applications of NMR starting from fundamentals to advanced levels and provides valuable experience to participants.


The participants will learn about the followings:


  • How an NMR spectrometer works
  • NMR Magnet Safety
  • Preparation of NMR Samples
  • Set up of 1D 1H and 13C NMR Experiments
  • Processing and Presentation of NMR Data

High Resolution – Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry (HR-IRMS) –

High Resolution – Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry (HR-IRMS) facility at SATHI-BHU is equipped with multiple peripherals which include Dual Inlet, Gas Bench, Gas Chromatography, Flash Elemental Analyzer, and Femto-Laser System. After completing the training program, participants are expected to:

  • Acquire good knowledge and deep understanding of the basic principle, working, and applications of HR-IRMS.
  • Learn the operational procedure for analysis of stable isotopes (C, N, O & H) for tracking of the physical, chemical, and biological reactions of diverse fields.
  • Understand the utility of HR-IRMS for analyzing samples from diverse fields of Earth Sciences, biological sciences, food sciences etc.
  • Understand the well-established procedure to identify the sources of the groundwater, aquifer recharge, and discharge.
  • Understand some of the industrial applications such as identifying adulteration in food and aroma industries.


Solar Simulator, Fuel Cell and Electrochemical Systems –

  • Solar Cell, Fuel Cell Electrochemical Workstation Instrument understanding Its application in electrochemical studies related to Solar Cell / Fuel Cell, Battery & Super capacitor etc.
  • Learn the operational procedure for analysis of IV curve.
  • Learn the operational procedure for analysis of Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) technique for the characterization of electrochemical systems.
  • Learn the operational procedure for analysis of Cyclic Voltammetry.


The objective of the training program is to acquaint the researchers / teachers with the know how of sophisticated state-of-the-art instruments along with basics of magnetic resonance and expose them to the state-of-the-art NMR Spectroscopy, High Resolution – Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry (HR-IRMS), Solar Simulator, Fuel Cell and Electrochemical related studies with thier applications. During this training program, attendees will have the opportunity to visit Banars Hindu University (BHU) which harbour most advanced and sophisticated state-of-the-art instruments. Additionally, the attendees will have an opportunity to closely interact with eminent scientists from this field.
