Pulse Methods in 1D & 2D Liquid-Phase NMREdited by
- Wallace Brey
FROM THE PREFACE: Pulse Methods in 1D and 2D Liquid-Phase NMR is written to enable the practicing NMR spectroscopist to understand and apply the varied and powerful new techniques developed in the past few years for obtaining spectra with greatly increased information content and from smaller and smaller samples. The intent is to describe both theory and practice in simple and detailed fashion so that the methods may be critically evaluated and effectively used in any potential application. As methods become more complex they require more instrument time, and it is important to be able to judge whether the investment of this time is justified. It is also essential for the spectroscopist to be in a position to evaluate the capabilities of the instrumentation available, as well as the additional requirements for utilization of particular new methods.The material in this book assumes a knowledge of continuous-wave NMR methods as well as an elementary understanding of the normal pulsed Fourier-transform spectroscopic procedures, together with a knowledge of such related phenomena as the nuclear Overhauser effect. Although much of the treatment is necessarily methematical, this aspect of the presentation has been simplified as much as possible.
Physical and analytical chemists; spectroscopists.

"This book presents an excellent introduction to the theoretical background of the major one-dimensional and two-dimensional NMR experiments and contains a wealth of information about the application of these experiments to problems of chemical and biochemical interest."
"This book provides a valuable overview of the considerable advances currently being made in this field and it will be an important addition to the laboratory book-shelf and technical library alike."
