Editorial Reviews

Review

"The uses of the many modern multiple NMW techniques are explained and demonstrated quite well." (CHOICE, September 2008)

From the Back Cover

A STEP-BY-STEP APPROACH TO UNDERSTANDING NMR SPECTROSCOPY

Used in concert with complementary analytical techniques such aslight spectroscopy and mass spectrometry, Nuclear MagneticResonance (NMR) spectroscopy is the most powerful tool for thedetermination of organic structure. This book fosters a real-worldunderstanding of NMR spectroscopy and how it works without buryingthe reader in technical details and physical and mathematicalformalism. With an accessible, clear style and approach, NMRSpectroscopy Explained:

  • Introduces readers to modern NMR spectroscopy as it is appliedto the analysis of organic compounds and biomolecules

  • Minimizes complicated theory and focuses on the practicalaspects of NMR spectroscopy

  • Provides comprehensive coverage of how NMR spectroscopyexperiments actually work and how to optimize them on thespectrometer

  • Provides examples of every experiment, with detailedinterpretation of data

  • Presents essential descriptive theory in mainly nonmathematicalterms

The guide starts with a basic model and expands it one step at atime, complete with experiments and examples, helping readers whoare not experts in physics or physical chemistry to develop anempowering understanding of even the most complex biological NMRspectroscopy techniques. It is an ideal reference for professionalsin industry and academia who use NMR spectroscopy technology, NMRfacility managers, and upper-level undergraduates and graduatestudents in organic chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacology,biophysics, and engineering.

Easy to understand, and yet goes into all of the theory.

The book begins with a simple vector model, progresses to a product operator description, and toward the end, introduces readers to the density matrix representation.

Since then, I have the opportunity to read the whole book a second time.

I've been working with NMR for over 11 years and over the years have acquired numerous books on the subject. This book is hands down the best on the subject. The author clearly explains everything, where other books throw up a graph/spectrum/equation and expect you to figure it out magically at times. Areas I've been confused on for years suddenly all make sense.

This book along with "Structure Determination of Organic Compounds" by Pretsch, Buhlmann, and Affolter and maybe "200 and More NMR experiments" by Berger and Braun are currently the only NMR books worth owning. Skip the rest.

Two thumbs way up!!

Initially I wanted to write a review for this book after I finish the whole book. However, since the publication of this book, I have noticed that nobody has ever written a review. I have only finished approximately 400 pages but I want to let people to know that this is clearest exposition on modern nmr spectroscopy I have ever come across. I have read a number of nmr books. These include the following

J.D. Roberts "ABC of FT NMR"
T. Claridge "High Resolution NMR spectroscopy in organic chemistry"
J. Sanders " Modern NMR spectroscopy"
H. Friebolin "Basic One- and Two-Dimenionsal NMR"

None of the above is as good as this book. The one that comes close to this is Friebolin's book. However, it is not as detail and does not cover topics such as operator formalism and density matrix. This book also covers the basic theoretical principles and presented in a very lucid way. I enjoy reading this book tremendously.

Dec 14, 2009. It has been almost 2 years since I wrote the initial review. Since then, I have the opportunity to read the whole book a second time. My opinion of this book remains the same. If you really want to understand NMR, you cannot go wrong with this book.

I've always found NMR to be extremely difficult but when I got this book, it really helped me to understand how to read and analyze NMR spectra. I also had the great honor of having the author of this book as my professor recently and the guy really knows his stuff and is great at conveying his knowledge. So if you never understood NMR or don't really understand it that much, or just want a great book about NMR, this is the book for you and you can trust in the fact that the author knows his stuff. I know this book is costly, but trust me you won't regret it at all!

Format: Hardcover
I have read several books about NMR theory and practice, and this book provides by far the most lucid description of essentially all aspects of modern NMR (polarization transfer, coherence selection, cross-relaxation, exchange phenomena, solvent suppression, pulsed field gradients, triple resonance methods, residual dipolar couplings, etcetera). The book begins with a simple vector model, progresses to a product operator description, and toward the end, introduces readers to the density matrix representation. In addition to providing a strong conceptual understanding of pulse sequences and sequence modules (e.g., INEPT, DPFGSE, COSY, NOESY, ROESY, TOCSY, HSQC, HMQC, HMBC), the book also describes practical considerations like hardware, data collection, and data processing. The final chapter of the book describes the application of NMR to structural biology. This chapter might have benefited from a description of modern approaches for probing the dynamics of biological systems (e.g., relaxation dispersion NMR), which are one of the primary strengths of NMR compared to diffraction or microscopy for studies of biological systems. I recommend this book for any NMR user that seeks a greater conceptual understanding of the behavior and manipulation of nuclear spin states (i.e., how their NMR experiments work at the level of the ensemble of nuclear spins), and as a foundation for reading more advanced texts like those by Slichter, Abragam, Ernst, or Levitt.
