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 as light spectroscopy and mass spectrometry, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is the most powerful tool for the determination of organic structure. This book fosters a real-world understanding of NMR spectroscopy and how it works without burying the reader in technical details and physical and mathematical formalism. With an accessible, clear style and approach, NMR Spectroscopy Explained:

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

  • Minimizes complicated theory and focuses on the practical aspects of NMR spectroscopy

  • Provides comprehensive coverage of how NMR spectroscopy experiments actually work and how to optimize them on the spectrometer

  • Provides examples of every experiment, with detailed interpretation of data

  • Presents essential descriptive theory in mainly nonmathematical terms

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

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 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!!

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!

This is the best all around NMR text I have come across. Jacobsen does a great job of explaining the vast array of topics in NMR ranging from the nuclear magnetism and pulse sequences to biological NMR. It is very well written, easy to read and follow, while still going into great amounts of detail. For those who do not enjoy heavy amounts of differential equations and linear algebra, then you will appreciate this book as there is just enough math to aid the written explanations, but not so much as to make your head spin. This book also has one of the best explanations/discussions on multi-dimensional techniques commonly used in organic and biological chemistry. There is one specific area where I find this book is somewhat lacking, the discussion on T1, T2 and NOE which is fairly rudimentary. It is more than sufficient for those new to the topic or working on small molecules, but does not offer much past that in my opinion. Also, if you are looking for a better understanding in solid state NMR, this is not the book for you. I would highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to learn more about NMR.
