Two new papers on solid-state NMR of pharmaceuticals

Two of our new papers on solid-state NMR of pharmaceuticals have just come out:

A.M. Namespetra, D.A. Hirsh, M.P. Hildebrand, A.R. Sandre, H. Hamaed, J.M. Rawson, and R.W. Schurko,* 2016. 35Cl Solid-State NMR Spectroscopy of HCl Pharmaceuticals and their Polymorphs in Bulk and Dosage Forms. Accepted in Cryst. Eng. Comm. June 2016, In Press. DOI: 10.1039/C6CE01069E


S.L. Veinberg, K.E. Johnston, M.J. Jaroszewicz, B.M. Kispal, C.R. Mireault, T. Kobayashi, M. Pruski,* and R.W. Schurko,* 2016. Natural Abundance 14N and 15N Solid-State NMR of Pharmaceuticals and their Polymorphs. PCCP 18, 17713 - 17730. DOI: 10.1039/C6CP02855A

Congrats to Stas!

Congratulations to Stas Veinberg, who successfully defended his Ph.D. on April 20, 2016, and graduated on June 14, 2016. His thesis is entitled: “Natural Abundance 14N and 15N Solid-State NMR Studies of Organic, Biological, and Pharmaceutical Systems”.

Congratulations to all of our graduates! A full photo gallery of the fall convocation can be found here:
