Über den Autor
Graham A. Webb has been actively engaged in research involving many aspects of NMR for about 25 years both at University College London and the University of Surrey, where he became a Professor of Physical Chemistry. During this time he has authored more than 400 published primary research papers, given presentations at about 200 international conferences dealing with NMR and supervised about 70 Ph.D. theses. He has been Editor of Annual Reports on NMR since 1975; the latest Volume to appear is number 55. In addition, he has edited The Royal Society of Chemistry Specialist Periodical Reports on NMR since 1978; the latest Volume is number 35. Professor Webb has also organised the biennial international conferences on Applications of NMR in Food Science since 1984.
A comprehensive collection of the applications of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Electron-Spin Resonance (ESR).
Covers the wide ranging disciplines in which these techniques are used:
* Biological Sciences;
* Pharmaceutical Sciences;
* Medical uses;
* Marine Science;
* Materials Science;
* Food Science.
Illustrates many techniques through the applications described, e.g.:
* High resolution solid and liquid state NMR;
* Low resolution NMR, especially important in food science;
* Solution State NMR, especially important in pharmaceutical sciences;
* Magnetic Resonance Imaging, especially important for medical uses;
* Electron Spin Resonance, especially important for spin-labelling in food, marine and medical studies.
This thorough compendium contains a unique collection of high-level information on NMR, MRI, and ESR. The breadth of the coverage is reflected by the team of contributors from 20 nations, spanning a broad spectrum of disciplines. Modern Magnetic Resonance provides a unique and comprehensive resource on up-to-date uses and applications of magnetic resonance techniques in the sciences, including chemistry, biology, materials, food, medicine, pharmaceuticals and marine science. The widespread appeal of MMR methods for revealing information at the molecular and microscopic levels is noted and examples are provided from the chemical and other sciences. Until now, there has been no single publication that covers all the areas encompassed by "Modern Magnetic Resonance", by bringing together the various techniques and their applications in many scientific areas, the internationally renowned Editors have created a resource of broad appeal to the scientific community.
