Modern NMR Techniques for Chemistry Research book cover

Modern NMR Techniques for Chemistry Research

Presents an introduction to modern NMR methods at a level suited to organic and inorganic chemists engaged in the solution of structural and mechanistic problems. The book assumes familiarity only with the simple use of proton and carbon spectra as sources of structural information and describes the advantages of pulse and Fourier transform spectroscopy which form the basis of all modern NMR experiments. Discussion of key experiments is illustrated by numerous examples of the solutions to real problems. The emphasis throughout is on the practical side of NMR and the book will be of great use to chemists engaged in both academic and industrial research who wish to realise the full possibilities of the new wave NMR.

Audience
For graduate and advanced undergraduate chemistry students as well as researchers in organic, organometallic and inorganic chemistry.

Reviews

  • This book is brilliantly conceived and presented. The author has a wonderfully readable style and explains difficult concepts in language that organic chemists can understand. It is like a thriller. Once picked up it is hard to put down. It should be in the hands of all practising graduate research chemists.
    Dr A B Holmes, University of Cambridge


    ...There are a wealth of helpful hints to be found throughout the book...useful to anyone wanting to know how to use modern NMR techniques to solve chemical problems.
    Paul D Lickiss, School of Chemistry and Molecular Sciences, University of Sussex, Journal of Organometallic Chemistry
    ...Derome's book can be highly recommended to anyone interested in NMR...
    Chemistry in Britain
    ...This book should be in the hands of all chemistry staff and research students and available in libraries for the use of undergraduates.
    Chemistry and Industry
    Altogether, Derome's book can be highly recommended to anyone interested in NMR.
    Chemistry in Britain
    This book is written in an engaging, relaxed style, very appropriate for the intended audience, advanced students, beginning researchers and older ones whose NMR education stopped with continuous-wave NMR.
    Journal of the American Chemical Society
    Altogether this is a very commendable book in which the author has undoubtedly achieved his objective, and it should be available in every chemistry department. It can be most warmly recommended for anyone wishing to acquire a deeper knowledge of modern NMR spectroscopy, whether as an introduction to practical use of techniques, or as preparatory reading before a study based on more theoretical oriented monographs. It seems especially suitable to use in research groups which have a considerable turnover of people, for providing newcomers with a minimum of NMR knowledge. The paperback is reasonably priced, and should be within the means even of students.

    ...written in a clear and conversational language... The book is an excellent teaching text and will be of particular value to graduate-level students and those organic and inorganic chemists who use NMR routinely for the analysis of structural and mechanistic problems.
    Chemistry in Australia
    For the person who is starting to learn how to do NMR or who must converse intelligently with technicians who will perform the experiments, this book is a real boon. I feel that any natural product chemist who presently might be limited to only one book on modern NMR could do no better than what is offered here.
    Journal of Natural Products
    This new book on NMR pulse techniques in chemistry research is a clear, up-to-date and factually accurate account of currently available experiments... The book is written in a friendly, modern style... With this book Andrew Derome has produced a good practical guide.
    Recueil des Travaux Chimiques des Pays-Bas
    ...it is especially well suited for the graduate student or the industrial worker with some experience of NMR, who wants a better understanding of what is happening in the magnet and the console.
    Journal of Magnetic Resonance
    The author does an admirable job...in a sprighly, conversational style, which makes for easy reading... This book will prove to be of great value...and it is especially well suited for the graduate student or the industrial worker with some experience in NMR...
    Journal of Magnetic Resonance
    an excellent introduction to this important area...overall the best in its field.
    Dr G A Morris University of Manchester
    A welcome text! The author has identified a major gap in text provision.
    Dr R W Matthews
    ...will prove valuable to students and staff, as an alternative source to other more introductory texts. I appreciate the easy-going writing and style and the very detailed discussions on selected topics, particularly on the practical side...a valuable effort which I am happy to recommend to undergraduates and postgraduates.
    DR A J Hannaford Thames Polytechnic
