Spin Labeling II: Theory and Applications covers spin-labeled biopolymers and its importance to both macromolecular modeling as well as some industrially based problems. The book discusses the methods of saturation-transfer spectroscopy; the spin-probe-spin-label method; and new aspects of nitroxide chemistry. The text also describes the spin-labeled synthetic polymers; the impact that the technique of spin labeling has on pharmacology and on biomedicine; as well as the applications of spin labeling to nucleic acids. Chemists, pharmacologists, biochemists, and people working in the field of biological magnetic resonance will find the book invaluable.
