How do Organic Chemists really know what they’ve made? It is not done by luck, there is hard science behind it. The lecture will explain the remarkable world of NMR spectroscopy and how engineers contributed to make it possible. The basics of how drug companies make a start on designing a drug and the problems that medicinal chemists face.
