Book Description

December 28, 2010 3527327827 978-3527327829 1
This is the fifth edition of the highly successful, classic textbook for bachelor and master courses, with over 20 % new material and the contents completely revised and updated.
Using a minimum of mathematics, it explains the underlying theory of this most important spectroscopic technique in a thorough, yet readily understandable way, covering instrumentation and interpretation of the spectra. It presents all students need to know about 1D, 2D-NMR, solid state and dynamic NMR spectroscopy, as well as NMR imaging, all illustrated by examples for maximum clarity. All the sections include sub-chapters that focus on applications taken from organic, macromolecular, polymer and biochemistry.
A must for students and lecturers in chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacy, and life sciences, as well as for spectroscopists.

Editorial Reviews


From reviews of previous editions:
"This book is a pleasure to read and if it does not arouse the student's interest, then it is difficult to see what could. It is clearly written and illustrated ... good value and essential reading for anyone wanting to know more about NMR."
Chemistry in Britain

"Another paperback that I would advise students to buy ... [it] can be recommended for general purchase by all chemists."
New Scientist

"This book deserves much praise. If only all authors took as much trouble to produce a work of such clarity and relevance... The book forms an excellent bridge between the very simple texts on spectral interpretation and more specialist works with an emphasis on mathematical theory... This book is highly educational and will be of benefit to those who have to teach NMR and to students and scientists in academic and industrial laboratories... this work is right up to date with an inclusion of most widely used modern NMR methods with a style and content that is superb."
NMR in Biomedicine

"... with it's fourth edition, Friebolin's NMR textbook remains the valuable companion and helpful guide as which it is well-known and appreciated among chemists and other scientists who seek a practical, comprehensive, but easy-to-read introduction into high-resolution NMR spectroscopy on organic molecules."
Dr. Ingo Schnell, Max-Planck-Institute for
Polymer Research, Mainz, ChemPhysChem

"The book is also especially recommended to biochemists, medicinal chemists, and others with still different backgrounds and who maybe not look back on a comprehensive training in physical chemistry but nevertheless like to understand (!) NMR in addition to merely employing it as a 'black box technique' ... What more could be said on behalf of this nice volume that has not been said before - either here or in other comments on previous editions? The best testimony is doubtless given by the book itself: go and read and be convinced by what it has to tell you. Good, clean peaks to all!"

As a student who doesn't always understand what they're talking about, this book was wonderful. Very clear, very easy-to-understand language. Thanks!

4.0 out of 5 stars 5th edition July 3, 2014
I don''t have this edition, but like very much an earlier edition. It would be helpful if Amazon was better at describing book/edition details. It appears that this is the 5th and most recent (as of July 2014) edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brand new with plastic wrap September 5, 2013

Really fast shipping for 6.99 dollars. Packed with plastic wrap and it looks wonderful. Textbook for NMR class, and what surprises me is that this new edition is a lot cheaper than previous one.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Starting Point March 31, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you have a basic course in NMR spectroscopy such as that in elementary organic chemistry and want to know more and would not like to deal with all the mathematics, this is probably the book that you would like to go to. This book discusses all the physical principles of common techniques in NMR spectroscopy without using extensive mathematical treatments such as product operator formalism and density matrix. Spin gymnastics in many NMR experiments such as spin echo, INEPT and NOSEY are explained pictorially. In almost all the cases, the author should be congratulated for being very successful in using such an approach. However, in one or two cases, I myself found it somewhat confusing because it is too wordy.

The book also covers such topics as solid state NMR and MRI descriptively. These topics are generally not found in many introductory books. The last chapter of the book deals with applications of NMR to biological and medical sciences and is well presented. There are quite a few examples of spectrum interpretation throughout the text. However, this is not a book one can use to learn organic spectrum interpretation. For that, one should consult books such as Jeffrey Simpson's "Organic Structure Determination, using 2-D NMR spectroscopy". Overall, the book provides a descriptive introduction of the physics in NMR spectroscopy. If one wants to go further than this, books such as those by James Keeler, "Understanding NMR spectroscopy" and Neil Jacobsen's "NMR Spectroscopy Explained" should be consulted. Keeler's and Jacobsens' books, however, are much more mathematical.
