SMASH poster award

Pinelopi Moutzouri, who won a JMR Young Scientist Award at the EUROMAR conference in Warsaw in July, has added to her successful summer by winning the best poster prize at the recent SMASH conference in Baveno, on Lake Maggiore. Her prize includes a year’s free subscription to the journal Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry. The poster described a new experimental technique that solves a long-standing problem in pure shift NMR, allowing systematic artefacts to be suppressed to arbitrary order without compromising resolution or sensitivity. The work was recently published in Chemical Communications (Chem. Comm. 53, 10188).
