Product Description

Review

the author has produced a very readable book ... The author has evidently gone to great trouble to select interesting spectra, and the text is greatly enriched by his efforts. (Michael Edenboroughon, Chemistry in Britain)

The author has succeeded in compressing into a small space clear explanations leading the reader from the level of elementary principles up to reasonably advanced methods and applications ... the organization is excellent and the material is clearly presented ... I can recommend the book highly to its intended audience. (W.S.B., Journal of Magnetic Resonance, Series A 121 (1996))

a very readable book. The 12 pages on chemical exchange contain many interesting and instructive examples. ... The author has evidently gone to great trouble to select interesting spectra, and the text is greatly enriched by his efforts. (Michael Edenboroughon, Chemistry in Britain)

These Oxford Chemistry Primers entered the market just over 15 years ago. Great value for an authoritative brief introduction to topics which you don't want to spend the time or money buying massive textbooks for!

I am a postdoc moving to a new area of research. I find that this book contains a good summary of what I have to know about NMR. Moreover, due to it's size you can keep it all the time close to you in case of any doubt. However, I recommend complementing your studies with a more detailed book such as Basic One- and Two-Dimensional NMR Spectroscopy

HASH(0x929aa72c) out of 5 stars Non-mathematical intro to the basics 6 Dec. 2003
By wiredweird - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the best introduction I've seen. It's clear and intuitive, but covers all the basics:
-- chemical shifts for a variety of binding structures,
-- the various isotopes,
-- line-splitting and spin coupling,
-- equilibria in chemical and physical state,
-- Overhauser effect,
and lots more. In other words, it covers everything needed for more advanced analyses, but does it without dragging the reader through every wave function. Somehow, the author packs all that into fewer than 90 pages without making it all indigestibly dense.
To get the book's full benefit, you'll need some background in chemistry, including a little organic, and maybe some physics. You won't need a lot of either - the first or second college course in each should be enough. The treatment uses a little algebra, but not a lot in the direct line of its arguments. The real emphasis is on the basic phenomena: on the concepts of electron shielding, on effects of different kinds of bonding, and on interactions between magnetic nuclei.
This book won't make you an analytic chemist. It could help, though. The text is well-suited for a prepared novice. It's illustrated with simple and descriptive diagrams. If you need to get the basic ideas of analytic NMR, fast, this book may be the best around. Other books cover advanced topics like NMR for protein structure. Read this book first, like an introductory chapter, and you'll have a much easier time with those more complex discussions.
This much information at this price is an incredible deal - it has my highest recommendation.

Pretty good textbook on NMR but the last chapter needs more elaboration.
