Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy is a most useful and important method to study molecular structures and dynamics. Application to biological molecules provides information on chemical and structural changes in course of a reaction.

The course includes:

  • Seminar proving the theoretical background
  • Simulation of spectra to understand their shape
  • Simulation of experimentally measured spectra
  • Introduction to the machine, recording of spectra




Knowledge of chemical bonds and electron orbitals is helpful, however, knowledge of quantum chemistry is not a prerequisite. 

Teaching goals:


Understanding basic principles of EPR spectroscopy, identification as tool for own research
Instructor: Prof. Dr. Thorsten Friedrich
Duration: 3 days
Participants: 6-8
Location: Institute of Biochemistry





The course is carried out upon request, contact your coordinator.
