This book presents the current understanding and applications of solid-state NMR. The rigorous, but readable approach makes it easy for someone who wishes to gain an overall impression of the subject or get into the details. The book is divided into two parts: "Fundamentals" and "Applications". The section on Fundamentals contains chapters that deal with the basic theory and practice of solid-state NMR. The basic techniques which all chapters rely on are collected into a second chapter to avoid unnecessary repetition later. Remaining chapters in the "Fundamentals" part deal with the major areas of solid-state NMR. Each begins with an overview of the topic which sets the chapter in context. Each of these chapters exemplifies the principles and techniques with the applications most commonly found in current practice.The "Applications" section contains a series of shorter chapters which describe the NMR techniques used in specific areas of chemistry, biochemistry and material science. These chapters include detailed discussion of what solid-state NMR spectroscopy can tell scientists about problems of current interest in these areas. "Solid-state NMR Spectroscopy: Principles and Applications" will be useful to all those in the fields of analytical chemistry and chemical technology both in the chemical and allied industries and in academic and government laboratories.
