Determination of Organic Structures by Physical Methods, Volume 5 is a seven-chapter text that discusses the improvements of some established physical methods for organic structure determination. Each chapter of this book examines specific physical method, including electron diffraction, spin saturation labeling, chemically and electro-magnetically induced dynamic nuclear polarization, ion cyclotron resonance spectroscopy, nuclear quadrupole resonance, Mössbauer spectroscopy, and automated analysis systems. The historical developments, principles, instrumentation, and applications to organic chemistry of these methods are discussed. This work will be of value to organic and analytical chemists and researchers.
