NMR Spectroscopy in Inorganic Chemistry
Retail Price to Students:$27.95 (06)
DescriptionThis book provides a non-mathematical grounding in the physics of NMR spectroscopy and then uses this to explore the use of NMR spectroscopy in inorganic chemistry.
Examples are included from many different areas of inorganic chemistry. The examples are closely related to the theory described. By giving a simple overview of the relevant theory and avoiding the 'pattern recognition' approach frequently used, it demystifies NMR.
- Most undergraduates find NMR extremely difficult so try to memorize the appearance of the NMR spectra of certain groups, avoiding the question of why each spectrum looks the way it does. This book explains why the spectra look the way they do
- Most undergraduate texts ignore inorganic chemistry and concentrate in organic. This book redresses the balance
- This book provides a useful collection of NMR examples and trends in NMR parameters from inorganic chemistry
"Iggo's book is part of the Oxford Chemistry Primer series, which aims to cover basic facts and principles in a particular area, within a compact and reasonably priced format. . .This volume aims to provide a non-mathematical format background in NMR theory and to illustrate the applications of the technique using inorganic rather than the more widely encountered organic, examples. . .Iggo provides an excellent foundation in the subject, and will awaken readers to unusual nuclei. I highly recommend that undergraduate meet the examples from this book, as they learn about MNR theory and organic applications."--Chemistry and Industry
