Book Description

May 9, 1991 0198556527 978-0198556527
This book describes the main methods of one-and two-dimensional high-resolution nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy in liquids within the quantum-mechanical formalism of the density matrix. In view of the increasing importance of NMR in chemistry and biochemistry, the work is particularly addressed to those scientists who do not have a working knowledge of quantum calculations. This knowledge is provided in the first part of the book through a description of quantum mechanics as applied to spin systems. This section is self-contained and limited to essentials. A final chapter is devoted to the principles of relaxation theory. By providing readers with practice in the theoretical tools of NMR, this book opens the way for a critical analysis of comprehensive treatises or articles on new methods. The emphasis throughout is on the actual use of NMR, so the text is neither oversimplified nor overly theoretical. The aim is to describe the basic theoretical tools needed to understand and fully exploit the valuable potential of high-resolution NMR.

Editorial Reviews


"Since its development in the late 1940s, nuclear magnetic resonance has grown into one of the most widely used spectroscopic techniques in modern molecular science . . . . To adequately describe such a broad field, NMR texts have, in the past, assumed encyclopedic proportions. Maurice Goldman's new book . . . departs from this traditional reference format and specializes in a particular, widespread application of NMR . . . providing a quantum mechanical description of two-dimensional NMR in liquids. . . . Goldman's book is important and timely, written in a thorough, careful manner." --Physics Today

"Presents a very elegant description. . . .is easy to follow. . . .The work is well done and I give this book my highest recommendation." --International Journal of Quantum Chemistry

Dr. Goldman's treatise is the text for rigously applying quantum mechanics to the description of NMR spectroscopy. The author begins with a short review of the classical description of NMR and then proceeds to lay out the quantum formalism to be used in later chapters. Spin mechanics and operators are discussed in some depth before preceeding to a review of quantum statistical mechanics. The first 4 chapters provide the tools for chapter 5, the quantum description of NMR, and beyond. Once upon firm quantum soil, several applications are discussed including J spectroscopy, shift correlation, intra-molecular multi-quantum coherences, and relaxation theory. The meat of these 4 chapters makes heavy use of the machinery presented in the initial 5 chapters. I recommend this book to physicists or physical chemists looking for deeper understanding of the quantal nature of NMR spectroscopy. Given the recent developments in multiquantum coherence spectroscopy the importance of the material in this book cannot be overstated.

This book is suitable for learning about theoretical aspects of NMR, although a very old book but still quite useful for people working on NMR experiment development.
