PANIC, Inc. is a not-for-profit corporation whose sole purpose is to organize an annual conference to discuss practical applications of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy covering interests of scientists employed in industrial, governmental and service laboratories throughout the world.  PANIC consists of a Board of Directors and a Scientific Organization Committee. For 2021, the Board has contracted with Vicki Johnson & Associates, LLC to assist us in making the physical arrangements required to hold the conference. The Scientific Organizing Committee has the responsibility of arranging both the technical and social content of the conference.


About This Conference 


Practical Applications of NMR in Industry Conference (PANIC) was started to provide a unique interactive forum for discussion of the latest developments in NMR for practical applications to real problems faced by scientists in industry and research institutions. The emphasis is the practicality of the solution and “getting the job done”. The forum provides a venue for presentation of practical applications, and workshops to discuss real-world experiences relevant to current product development needs with an opportunity to share case studies to drive further development of NMR technology. Solution-state, solid-state, time-domain, and zero-field applications are all equally welcome at PANIC. The forum also provides a venue for industrial, regulatory, government, and academic scientists to meet, network, and participate in exchanges of knowledge for mutual education in and advancement of the use of NMR techniques.


The PANIC meeting is intended to address topics that occur daily in industrial, government, and academic research laboratories whose primary task entails the application of NMR to a diverse set of analytical problems. Topics include quantitation, molecular structure characterization, trace component and mixture analysis, and product support for a variety of materials that include small molecules, polymers, heterogeneous mixtures, natural products, biopharmaceuticals, polysaccharides, and proteins. The conference provides in-depth discussions of the “nuts and bolts” of basic NMR experiments that accent the underlying best-practices developed to address these everyday problems. It also explores the regulatory aspects of the applications of these experiments.

Greater insights will be provided into the unique techniques used in NMR such as quantitation, chemometrics, automation, relaxometry, and low-field instrumentation. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about and discuss applications of NMR to pharmaceuticals, polymers, petroleum, food/agriculture, and plant production that are rarely discussed at other NMR meetings. Ample opportunity will be given to network with people who are experts in developing NMR experiments to solve real world problems in a timely and efficient manner that is demanded by working in the venue of product delivery.

Who Should Register

  • Scientists and managers in industrial, government, and academic laboratories that use NMR to solve a variety of changing and challenging analytical problems on a daily basis.

  • Regulatory professionals who oversee the applications of NMR in the drug and food industries and in environmental assessment.

  • Quality control managers looking for powerful methods that can provide unique solutions to their problems.

  • Scientists developing new NMR technologies to address emerging analytical challenges.
