  • Jul/2020 23/07/2020 | 11:00 Webinar - Fast Field-Cycling methods applied to imaging: an overview of the technology, methods and clinical results from Aberdeen Lionel Broche

    Institute of Medical Sciences, University of Aberdeen, UK

    Email: l.broche@abdn.ac.uk

    Fast Field-Cycling relaxometry is a powerful tool for the investigation of molecular dynamics that provides multi-scale information from milli-to nanometres, non-invasively. This offers interesting prospects as an imaging tool and multiple attempts have been tried in the past to make FFC MRI scanners. The FFC research group at the University of Aberdeen has been developing such systems over the last two decades and is now using a custom-made whole-body FFC imager for several clinical studies, including brain stroke, breast cancer and brain cancer, with the help of several partners. This presentation will introduce the technology developed by our team, its advantages and drawbacks, as well as the first results from the FFC imaging clinical studies, including FFC-NMR analyses of tissue samples.

    This is the final webinar in this summer series. We thank all speakers and numerous participants who have encouraged us to keep these online sessions going. We intend to organize a second series of webinars on NMR relaxometry theory and applications from September. Dates and frequency to be communicated.
    If you would like to present a webinar in the next series, we welcome your proposals. Please contact Dr. Rebecca Steele at steele@stelar.it with a title and short abstract for your lecture.
    Please note that recordings for all the webinars in this series will officially be made available online at the end of this series – (after 23rd July, and with the necessary permissions from authors). If you register for a webinar, you will be notified as soon as these are available.

  • Jul/2020 16/07/2020 | 10:00 Webinar - How to reveal the mechanism of translation diffusion by means of NMR relaxometry When discussing the advantages of NMR relaxometry we point out that the method provides information about  molecular  and  ionic  motion  in  a  broad  range  of  correlation  times  and  allows  to  reveal  the mechanism  of  the  motion. The  last  kind  of  information  is  associated  with  the  shape  of  the  spectral density  function,  being  Fourier  transform  of  the  corresponding  correlation  function.  The  correlation function has  a  strict  mathematical  definition –it  is  determined  by  the  form  of  the  probability  that  a particle  takes  the  position  x  at  time  t,  provided  it  was  at  the  position  x0  at  time  0.  The  conditional probability function can be obtained by solving diffusion equations with specific boundary conditions. As relaxation  rates  are  given  as  combinations  of  spectral  density  functions,  the  shape  of  the  relaxation dispersion profile is a fingerprint of the shape of the correlation function and, hence, the mechanism of motion. This concept sounds great, but it has numerous limitations. In reality, the conclusions from the data analysis can often be misleading and controversial.

  • Jul/2020 09/07/2020 | 12:00 Webinar - High Performance NMR Spectroscopy on the Bench: Latest Developments and Applications Speaker: Andrew Coy

    Benchtop NMR systems have become indispensable analytical lab instruments during the past few years. The ability to acquire high quality NMR spectra in the lab is saving enormous time and money for chemists who previously had to wait for NMR results from remote or centralized resources. Furthermore, having the NMR spectrometer next to your chemical reactor has made it possible to monitor chemical processes on-line and in real time, a type of study that is not accessible by conventional high-field NMR spectrometers.
    This webinar will describe the latest applications and developments of the pre-eminent Spinsolve benchtop NMR spectrometer. Results from the all-new Spinsolve 80 ULTRA, featuring the highest homogeneity and field, will be shown. This model is specifically designed to enable the highest quality solvent-suppression, a requirement for many benchtop NMR applications.

In the case of magnetic iron-oxide nanoparticles (MNPs) the solvent interaction with the magnetic moments, mediated by the surface  chemistry,  generates  changes  in  the  local  NMR  signal  intensity  which  can  be  used  to  create image  contrast  in  MRI.  Hence 1H  NMR  relaxation  measurements  can  be  used  to  study  dynamics  of magnetic  moments1for  dispersed  particles  (fast  dynamics)  and  for  nanoparticle  assemblies  (slow dynamics). The application of FFC-NMR measurements to MNP suspensions can provide fundamental insights  into  ligand-ligand,  solvent-particle  and  particle-particle  interactions.  The  utility  of  this information in developing approaches to particle dispersion,2,3in understanding particle dissolution, in controlling  particle  assembly  into  functional  clusters4-6and  in  helping  understand  nanoparticle interactions with bio-systems willbe described.
