Topical Meeting on quantitative 2D HSQC

General information: Topical Meeting on quantitative 2D HSQC

Organized by: SwedNMR and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU)
Dates: 4 – 5 June 2024, from lunch to lunch
The scope:
• How quantitative is HSQC?
• Which experiment for which application and sample?
The participants are most welcome to have a small presentation and/or suggest discussion topics as well as to bring their own HSQC spectra.
Venue & Address: SLU, Ultuna, Uppsala (BioCenter building)
Target group: SwedNMR staff scientists and experts as well as other NMR spectroscopists interested to learn more about this topic
Format: Lectures and discussions
Organizers and Contacts: Hanna Eriksson Röhnisch; Dept. of Molecular Sciences, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), Uppsala, Sweden
Contact e-mail: or
Information: Will be send by e-mail to the registered participants
Registration: May 27, 2024
