June 10: Chemistry co-hosts 'SMART: NMR Spectroscopy Symposium' in honour of Bill Reynolds

May 6, 2021 by Dan Haves

On June 10th, the department of chemistry and Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry will co-host SMART: NMR Spectroscopy Symposium, a one-day symposium will highlight recent advances, practical applications, and NMR analysis strategies for small molecules.  

The symposium will be of interest to a wide range of users who might not attend traditional NMR conferences, including graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and industrial researchers working with small molecules, in areas such as catalysis, organic, biological, medicinal, natural products, and analytical chemistry.

Registration is free.

My 40 Years of 2D NMR and Natural Product Structure Elucidation: What I have Taught and What I have Learned


Prof. Reynolds is an Editor Emeritus of Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry and has authored over 300 journal articles, including more than 200 with scientists and students from Mexico and the Caribbean. He has also authored or co-authored one book, three book chapters and seven reviews in the area of small molecule NMR.

He is a recipient of the Spectroscopy Society of Canada’s Gerhard Herzberg Award as well as the inaugural James N. Shoolery Award for lifetime contributions to the field of small molecule NMR spectroscopy. He also became the first Canadian member of the Academia Mexicana de Ciencias, in recognition of his contributions to Mexican Science.  

Prof. Reynolds' contributions have influenced countless publications in the area of small molecule NMR and, importantly, continue to inform many of the topics that will be covered in this symposium. The SMART: NMR Spectroscopy symposium honours this legacy.
