The Second Edition of Practical Gamma-Ray Spectrometry has been completely revised and updated, providing comprehensive coverage of the whole gamma-ray detection and spectrum analysis processes. Drawn on many years of teaching experience to produce this uniquely practical volume, issues discussed include the origin of gamma-rays and the issue of quality assurance in gamma-ray spectrometry. This new edition also covers the analysis of decommissioned nuclear plants, computer modelling systems for calibration, uncertainty measurements in QA, and many more topics.

The derivation of structural information from spectroscopic data is now an integral part of organic chemistry courses at all Universities.  A critical part of any such course is a suitable set of problems to develop the student’s understanding of how structures are determined from spectra. 

Organic Structures from Spectra, Fifth Edition is a carefully chosen set of more than 280 structural problems employing the major modern spectroscopic techniques, a selection of 27 problems using 2D-NMR spectroscopy, more than 20 problems specifically dealing with the interpretation of spin-spin coupling in proton NMR spectra and 8 problems based on the quantitative analysis of mixtures using proton and carbon NMR spectroscopy.  All of the problems are graded to develop and consolidate the student’s understanding of organic spectroscopy.  The accompanying text is descriptive and only explains the underlying theory at a level which is sufficient to tackle the problems.  The text includes condensed tables of characteristic spectral properties covering the frequently encountered functional groups.

The examples themselves have been selected to include all important common structural features found in organic compounds and to emphasise connectivity arguments.  Many of the compounds were synthesised specifically for this purpose.  There are many more easy problems, to build confidence and demonstrate basic principles, than in other collections. 

The fifth edition of this popular textbook:

• includes more than 250 new spectra and more than 25 completely new problems;
• now incorporates an expanded suite of new problems dealing with the analysis of 2D NMR spectra (COSY, C H Correlation spectroscopy, HMBC, NOESY and TOCSY); 
• has been expanded and updated to reflect the new developments in NMR and to retire older techniques that are no longer in common use;
• provides a set of problems dealing specifically with the quantitative analysis of mixtures using NMR spectroscopy;
• features proton NMR spectra obtained at 200, 400 and 600 MHz and 13C NMR spectra include DEPT experiments as well as proton-coupled experiments;
• contains 6 problems in the style of the experimental section of a research paper and two examples of fully worked solutions.

Organic Structures from Spectra, Fifth Edition will prove invaluable for students of Chemistry, Pharmacy and Biochemistry taking a first course in Organic Chemistry.

Reviews from earlier editions

“Your book is becoming one of the “go to” books for teaching structure determination here in the States.  Great work!”

“…I would definitely state that this book is the most useful aid to basic organic spectroscopy teaching in existence and I would strongly recommend every instructor in this area to use it either as a source of examples or as a class textbook”.
Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry

“Over the past year I have trained many students using problems in your book - they initially find it as a task.  But after doing 3-4 problems with all their brains activities... working out the rest of the problems become a mania.  They get addicted to the problem solving and every time they solve a problem by themselves, their confident level also increases.”

 “I am teaching the fundamentals of Molecular Spectroscopy and your books represent excellent sources of spectroscopic problems for students.”

This text is aimed at people who have some familiarity with high-resolution NMR and who wish to deepen their understanding of how NMR experiments actually ‘work’. This revised and updated edition takes the same approach as the highly-acclaimed first edition. The text concentrates on the description of commonly-used experiments and explains in detail the theory behind how such experiments work. The quantum mechanical tools needed to analyse pulse sequences are introduced set by step, but the approach is relatively informal with the emphasis on obtaining a good understanding of how the experiments actually work. The use of two-colour printing and a new larger format improves the readability of the text. In addition, a number of new topics have been introduced: How product operators can be extended to describe experiments in AX2 and AX3 spin systems, thus making it possible to discuss the important APT, INEPT and DEPT experiments often used in carbon-13 NMR. Spin system analysis i.e. how shifts and couplings can be extracted from strongly-coupled (second-order) spectra. How the presence of chemically equivalent spins leads to spectral features which are somewhat unusual and possibly misleading, even at high magnetic fields. A discussion of chemical exchange effects has been introduced in order to help with the explanation of transverse relaxation. The double-quantum spectroscopy of a three-spin system is now considered in more detail.

Reviews of the First Edition

“For anyone wishing to know what really goes on in their NMR experiments, I would highly recommend this book” – Chemistry World

“…I warmly recommend for budding NMR spectroscopists, or others who wish to deepen their understanding of elementary NMR theory or theoretical tools” – Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry
