NMR of Newly Accessible Nuclei, Volume 1: Chemical and Biochemical Applications is a 10-chapter text that explores the properties, advantages, developments, and chemical and biochemical applications of NMR technique. This book describes first the operation of an NMR spectrometer under its two aspects, namely, the instrumental and the computational aspects. The next chapters are devoted to some of the most important pulse sequences. The discussion then shifts to the various factors determining the position of the observed absorption and those responsible for the various relaxation processes. The last chapters deal with the specific applications of NMR, including in cation salvation, calcium-binding proteins, polyelectrolyte systems, halogens, and antibiotic ionophores.
This book is of value to inorganic and analytical chemists, and biophysicists.
