Editorial Reviews


"An excellent review of the principles of modern NMR spectroscopy....For physical scientists working in spectroscopy this book offers a wealth of concentrated information and I strongly recommend it."--Magnetic Resonance Imaging

"Presents a uniquely comprehensive and up-to-date treatment....The authors provide a unified review of the entire field, covering basic principles and techniques for the study of solutions and solids, with emphasis placed on methods of one-and two-dimensional spectroscopy."--SciTech Book News

"Presents a comprehensive description of modern NMR techniques, and, more importantly, of its underlying concepts....This book is a must for every library dealing with chemistry, chemical physics, biochemistry, or biophysics and for every self-respecting NMR spectroscopist."--Journal of Magnetic Resonance

"Thorough and authoritative...invaluable to serious practitioners in the field, both pure and applied and to students eager to grasp the innermost workings and concepts."--Quarterly Review of Biology

"[This] volume, written by three leaders in the development of modern pulse NMR theory and practice, may well fall into the landmark category....The treatment here is with an even hand and no obvious prejudices."--Texas A&M University NMR Newsletter

"Ernst's group is, and has been for years, probably the most productive in the world of new and useful methods in NMR spectroscopy, particularly the dominant part of it concerned with high-resolution spectra in liquids . . . Accordingly, this book has been eagerly awaited for a long time. It turns out to be just what one would have expected--an authoritative and clearly written exposé of developments over the past 25 years . . . The book is indispensable to those who are seriously interested in understanding and interpreting contemporary approaches in what has become a sophisticated field." --American Scientist

"I recommend this book as a good reference text for practicing NMR medical physicists....A text such as this provides the theory and the mathematical tools necessary to fully understand the complex behavior of the nuclear-spin system." --Medical Physics

"A comprehensive account....Detailed, logical, clear, and complete....Must be on the shelf of anyone who intends to engage in modern high-resolution NMR spectroscopy." --Journal of the American Chemical Society

"The authors have succeeded admirably in writing a rigorous treatment of modern Fourier transform nmr which will certainly stand the test of time, remaining a valuable reference volume probably into the next century --Journal of Natural Products

"The requirement for a major monograph on the subject of pulse NMR spectroscopy in one and two dimensions has been met by Ernst, Bodenhausen and Wokaun. The book is a triumph of careful and clear exposition ranging over liquids, solids and spin-imaging, with all the new methods subject to detailed examination and illustrated with examples. It is scholarly and readable. . . .This will be the lasting text of its age, the Abragam amongst modern NMR books." --Nature

Format: Paperback
Not for the faint of heart, but this thing is plain awesome. It utilizes and clearly explains a useful way to look at the density matrix using Liouville space formalism and so-called 'superoperators'. If you like NMR and quantum mechanics, this is the book for you. I like Ernst and Co's style better than other NMR books, say a Slichter (though Ernst is a little less introductory than Slichter) or Levitt (much much less introductory than Levitt).

I can't express how much I enjoyed the operator formalism explanations, and if you've ever felt confused or intimidated by the notation or nomenclature surrounding Liouville space, try out this book because if you already know some quantum mechanics there's really nothing additionally complex about it. It really is a sneakily powerful tool to have in your kit if you are an NMRist, atomic physicist, or quantum mechanic in general, and is actually very natural and comfortable to use once you know what it can do and how it works.

Format: Paperback
The long and incredibly productive career of Richard Ernst could be said to have written most of this book. It is difficult to overstate his constribution to the field of NMR spectroscopy. In this seminal work, Dr. Ernst along with his co-authors and collaborators Bodenhausen and Wokaun draw on a vast base of knowledge to describe NMR spectroscopy in a clear understandable fashion for the newest student. Yet, this volume is packed with detail to satisfy even the most strigent graduate exam. The first chapter is an introduction to operator formalism which provides the theoretical framework for the discussion NMR experiments in 1- and 2- dimensions. The subsequent chapter on 1-D FT spectroscopy contains a depth of information lacking in many other treatments. This is followed by a clear discussion of multi-quantum transitions which are explored in full in the chapters on 2-D spectroscopy. The fourth chapter on the formation of 2-D spectra is the most complete I've seen to date. It should be since Ernst and his lab did much to shape the nature of 2-D spectroscopy. This is followed by three chapters elaborating on different aspects and areas of application of 2-D NMR spectroscopy. Finally chapter 8 is dedicated to NMR imaging which was changed in no small part by Dr. Ernst's contributions. This book should be on the shelf of any professional or student whose business is to know NMR spectrscopy. Physicists, spin-engineers, and physical chemists need this book if they are to study the fundamentals of NMR spectroscopy.
