Book Description

July 13, 1995 0198556829 978-0198556824 1
Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy is an enormously powerful and versatile physical method for investigating the structure and dynamics of molecules. This text provides a clear, concise introduction to the physical principles of NMR, and the interactions that determine the appearance of NMR spectra. It describes and explains how nuclear spins interact with a magnetic field (the chemical shift) and with each other (spin-spin coupling); how NMR spectra are affected by chemical equilibria (exchange) and molecular motion (relaxation); and concludes with an outline of the workings of some simple one- and two-dimensional Fourier transform NMR experiments. The ways in which NMR may be used to study the structures, motions and reactions of molecules are illustrated and discussed. Only essential mathematics and theory are presented. The emphasis throughout is on understanding the basic principles.

Editorial Reviews


"The author has succeeded in compressing into a small space clear explanations leading the reader from the level of elementary principles up to reasonably advanced methods and applications."--Journal of Magnetic Resonance

5.0 out of 5 stars Non-mathematical intro to the basics December 6, 2003
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the best introduction I've seen. It's clear and intuitive, but covers all the basics:
-- chemical shifts for a variety of binding structures,
-- the various isotopes,
-- line-splitting and spin coupling,
-- equilibria in chemical and physical state,
-- Overhauser effect,
and lots more. In other words, it covers everything needed for more advanced analyses, but does it without dragging the reader through every wave function. Somehow, the author packs all that into fewer than 90 pages without making it all indigestibly dense.
To get the book's full benefit, you'll need some background in chemistry, including a little organic, and maybe some physics. You won't need a lot of either - the first or second college course in each should be enough. The treatment uses a little algebra, but not a lot in the direct line of its arguments. The real emphasis is on the basic phenomena: on the concepts of electron shielding, on effects of different kinds of bonding, and on interactions between magnetic nuclei.
This book won't make you an analytic chemist. It could help, though. The text is well-suited for a prepared novice. It's illustrated with simple and descriptive diagrams. If you need to get the basic ideas of analytic NMR, fast, this book may be the best around. Other books cover advanced topics like NMR for protein structure. Read this book first, like an introductory chapter, and you'll have a much easier time with those more complex discussions.
This much information at this price is an incredible deal - it has my highest recommendation.
