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

@qu: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. @source:Dr A B Holmes, University of Cambridge @qu:...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. @source:Paul D Lickiss, School of Chemistry and Molecular Sciences, University of Sussex, Journal of Organometallic Chemistry @qu:...Derome's book can be highly recommended to anyone interested in NMR... @source:Chemistry in Britain @qu:...This book should be in the hands of all chemistry staff and research students and available in libraries for the use of undergraduates. @source:Chemistry and Industry @qu:Altogether, Derome's book can be highly recommended to anyone interested in NMR. @source:Chemistry in Britain @qu: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. @source:Journal of the American Chemical Society @qu: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, fo
