Simulation and Interpretation of EPR Spectra
Commencing February 26, 2021
People starting to use EPR often find interpretation of their spectra a daunting task. The Bruker SpinFit and Anisotropic SpinFit simulation programs are great resources to make the task of interpretation easier. Bruker invites you to attend this series of six presentations to introduce you to using these programs in your work. The presentations are sequential, meaning each one builds upon the previous last. The series will begin on February 26th, and run every Friday for 6-weeks.
The intended audience is people currently working with EPR and need to interpret their spectra. People just starting out in EPR are also encouraged to participate.
This provides important concepts to fully benefit from the future practical demonstrations. It includes an introduction to the spin Hamiltonian, line shape models, as well as fitting. Emphasis is on solution state spectra.
This session introduces spin-trapping technique to detect and analyze short-lived radical species such as reactive oxygen species. Examples of EPR spectra with one and multiple spin-trapped radicals will give insight how to use integrated SpinFit library in the Bruker software followed by quantitative analysis.
This session will be focused in detail on two examples of using Anisotropic SpinFit. We show how to obtain spin-Hamiltonian information by simple line shape analysis and how to set the starting parameters for successful fitting using this information.
