Karyashala Online Workshop in Structural Methods
- The School of Chemistry, IISER Thiruvananthapuram, under the accelerated Vigyan scheme from SERB conducted Karyashala, an intense, high-end workshop training for scientific instruments such as Electron microscopes, NMR spectrometers, X-ray diffractometers and different mass instruments (https://workshop.iisertvm.ac.in/karyashala/). Post-graduate students of Chemistry found the workshop very valuable as it gave them an opportunity to gain a firm theoretical basis, and obtain practical experience in the aforementioned high-end techniques, data processing, spectral analysis and interpretation. This year the Karyashala was conducted in online mode due to the prevailing pandemic situation.
Prof. J. N. Moorthy inaugurated the Karyashala on September 27, 2021. This was followed by Lecture and video sessions every day, for entire duration of the Karyashala. Experienced faculty members from the Chemistry department of IISER TVM carried through the program to its completion. The Karyashala was officially closed on October 01, 2021, with the closing remarks offered by Prof. Mahesh Hariharan, HoD, School of Chemistry, IISER TVM.
