Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy is one of the most powerful and versatile techniques now available for the study of molecular structure and reaction mechanisms. Written by recognised experts in the field, this classic account of modern NMR spectroscopy was heralded on its first publication in 1987 as "the lasting text of its age" Nature. Now available in paperback, it provides a thoroughly comprehensive review of modern NMR techniques and the underlying principles. It describes the study of solutions and solids using one- and two-dimensional spectroscpy, providing both a solid theoretical foundation and a description of practical procedures. The material is presented in an intuitive manner within a rigorous mathematical framework, and is extensively illustrated throughout. This important work was written at the ETH in Zurich, one of the world's leading institutions in advanced NMR methods, which has played a key role in the development of Fourier spectroscopy, two-dimensional spectroscopy, and Fourier-transform NMR imaging. Available in paperback for the first time, the book provides the definitive account of the field, and is without question "a must...for every self-respecting NMR spectroscopist" Journal of Magnetic Resonance.
