Neil E. Jacobsen has been the NMR Facility Manager in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Arizona for the last 20 years. He teaches an undergraduate course in NMR Spectroscopy (Organic Qualitative Analysis) using a series of unknowns including monoterpenes and steroids, with students acquiring their own 400 MHz 1D and 2D NMR data. He also teaches a graduate course in Organic Synthesis and NMR Spectroscopy that is focused on using the spectrometers and interpreting complex NMR data. He has 30 years of experience working in the field of NMR spectroscopy, and during that time he has authored 46 publications in peer-reviewed journals as well as the 2007 Wiley book NMR Spectroscopy Explained.
