Electron spin resonance spectroscopy is the method used to determine the structure and life expectancy of a number of radicals. Written by Fabian Gerson and Walter Huber, top experts in the field of electron spin resonance spectroscopy, this book offers a compact yet readily comprehensible introduction to the modern world of ESR. Thanks to its comprehensive coverage, ranging from fundamental theory right up to the treatment of all important classes of organic radicals and triplet-state molecules that can be analyzed using ESR spectroscopy, this unique book is suitable for users in both research and industry. Instead of using complex mathematical derivations, the authors present a readily understandable approach to the field by interpreting sample spectra and classifying experimental data.

In short, the ideal book for newcomers to the subject and an absolute must-have for everyone confronted with ESR spectroscopy and wanting to become acquainted with this widely-used method of analysis.
