NMR Spectroscopy Explained : Simplified Theory, Applications andExamples for Organic Chemistry and Structural Biology providesa fresh, practical guide to NMR for both students andpractitioners, in a clearly written and non-mathematical format. Itgives the reader an intermediate level theoretical basis forunderstanding laboratory applications, developing conceptsgradually within the context of examples and useful experiments.
  • Introduces students to modern NMR as applied to analysis oforganic compounds.
  • Presents material in a clear, conversational style that isappealing to students.
  • Contains comprehensive coverage of how NMR experiments actuallywork.
  • Combines basic ideas with practical implementation of thespectrometer.
  • Provides an intermediate level theoretical basis forunderstanding laboratory experiments.
  • Develops concepts gradually within the context of examples anduseful experiments.
  • Introduces the product operator formalism after introducing thesimpler (but limited) vector model.

This text is aimed at people who have some familiarity withhigh-resolution NMR and who wish to deepen their understanding ofhow NMR experiments actually ‘work’. This revised andupdated edition takes the same approach as the highly-acclaimedfirst edition. The text concentrates on the description ofcommonly-used experiments and explains in detail the theory behindhow such experiments work. The quantum mechanical tools needed toanalyse pulse sequences are introduced set by step, but theapproach is relatively informal with the emphasis on obtaining agood understanding of how the experiments actually work. The use oftwo-colour printing and a new larger format improves thereadability of the text. In addition, a number of new topics havebeen introduced: How product operators can be extended to describe experimentsin AX2 and AX3 spin systems, thus making it possible to discuss theimportant APT, INEPT and DEPT experiments often used in carbon-13NMR.Spin system analysis i.e. how shifts and couplings can beextracted from strongly-coupled (second-order) spectra.How the presence of chemically equivalent spins leads tospectral features which are somewhat unusual and possiblymisleading, even at high magnetic fields.A discussion of chemical exchange effects has been introducedin order to help with the explanation of transverserelaxation.The double-quantum spectroscopy of a three-spin system is nowconsidered in more detail.

Reviews of the First Edition

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

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

Spin Dynamics: Basics of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, SecondEdition is a comprehensive and modern introduction whichfocuses on those essential principles and concepts needed for athorough understanding of the subject, rather than the practicalaspects. The quantum theory of nuclear magnets is presented withina strong physical framework, supported by figures. 

The book assumes only a basic knowledge of complex numbers andmatrices, and provides the reader with numerous worked examples andexercises to encourage understanding. With the explicit aim ofcarefully developing the subject from the beginning, the textstarts with coverage of quarks and nucleons and progresses throughto a detailed explanation of several important NMR experiments,including NMR imaging, COSY, NOESY and TROSY. 

Completely revised and updated, the Second Edition features newmaterial on the properties and distributions of isotopes, chemicalshift anisotropy and quadrupolar interactions, Pake patterns, spinechoes, slice selection in NMR imaging, and a complete new chapteron the NMR spectroscopy of quadrupolar nuclei. New appendices havebeen included on Euler angles, and coherence selection by fieldgradients. As in the first edition, all material is heavilysupported by graphics, much of which is new to thisedition. 

Written for undergraduates and postgraduate students taking afirst course in NMR spectroscopy and for those needing anup-to-date account of the subject, this multi-disciplinary bookwill appeal to chemical, physical, material, life, medical, earthand environmental scientists. The detailed physical insights willalso make the book of interest for experienced spectroscopists andNMR researchers. 

• An accessible and carefully written introduction,designed to help students to fully understand this complex anddynamic subject

• Takes a multi-disciplinary approach, focusing on basicprinciples and concepts rather than the more practical aspects

• Presents a strong pedagogical approach throughout, withemphasis placed on individual spins to aid understanding

• Includes numerous worked examples, problems, furtherreading and additional notes

Praise from the reviews of the First Edition:

"This is an excellent book... that many teachers of NMRspectroscopy will cherish... It deserves to be a‘classic’ among NMR spectroscopy texts." NMRIN BIOMEDICINE

"I strongly recommend this book to everyone…it isprobably the best modern comprehensive description of thesubject." ANGEWANDTE CHEMIE, INTERNATIONAL EDITION
