Applications of NMR Spectroscopy, Volume 1, originally published by Bentham and now distributed by Elsevier, presents the latest developments in the field of NMR spectroscopy, including the analysis of edible oils and lipid content in foods, the role of NMR spectroscopy in the human metabolomics and the diagnosis of autism-related disorders, protein-protein interactions, and NMR spectroscopy of chiral molecules.

The fully illustrated chapters contain comprehensive references to the recent literature. The applications presented cover a wide range of the field, such as drug development, medical imaging and diagnostics, food science, mining, petrochemical, process control, materials science, and chemical engineering, making this resource a multi-disciplinary reference with broad applications.

The content is ideal for readers who are seeking reviews and updates, as it consolidates scientific articles of a diverse nature into a single volume. Sections are organized based on disciplines, such as food science and medical diagnostics. Each chapter is written by eminent experts in the field.

Key Features

  • Consolidates the latest developments in NMR spectroscopy into a single volume
  • Authored and edited by world-leading experts in spectroscopy
  • Features comprehensive references to the most recent related literature
  • More than 75 illustrations aid in the retention of key concepts


Analytical and medicinal chemists; food scientists, pharmaceutical scientists; students taking related coursework at the upper undergraduate or graduate level
