    Book Summary

    Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectroscopy is a dynamic way for scientists of all kinds to investigate the physical, chemical, and biological properties of matter. Its many applications make it a versatile tool previously subject to monolithic treatment in reference-style texts. Based on a course taught for over ten years at Brandeis University, this is the first textbook on NMR spectroscopy for a one-semester course or self-instruction. In keeping with the authors' efforts to make it a useful textbook, they have included problems at the end of each chapter.

    The book not only covers the latest developments in the field, such as GOESY (Gradient Enhanced Overhauser Spectroscopy) and multidimensional NMR, but includes practical examples using real spectra and associated problem sets. Assuming the reader has a background of chemistry, physics and calculus, this textbook will be ideal for graduate students in chemistry and biochemistry, as well as biology, physics, and biophysics. NMR for Physical and Biological Scientists will also be useful to medical schools, research facilities, and the many chemical, pharmaceutical, and biotech firms that offer in-house instruction on NMR spectroscopy.


      • This book provides a solid foundation for learning about this important subject.
      • This book covers the latest in the field such as GOESY (Gradient Enhanced Overhauser Spectroscopy) and multidimensional NMR.
      • End-of-chapter problems help introduce practical and theoretical concepts. Solutions to the problems will be available online.

    Mathematica® Notebooks

    Mathematica notebooks are provided for further computation, visualization, and analysis for key concepts in Chapters 1-7. Note that some notebook demos require three files: the notebook, (.nb), the automation file (.m) and a dataset (cdcl3.fid). The user will need to download the dataset file to a directory on their computer, and point the program to that directory. PDF files with instructions for each demo are included.
