Description

The state-of-the-art in NMR spectral analysis.
This interactive tutorial provides readers with a comprehensive range of software tools and techniques, as well as the necessary theoretical knowledge required to analyze their spectra and obtain the correct NMR parameters.
Modern Spectral Analysis provides expert guidance, by presenting efficient strategies to extract NMR parameters from measured spectra. A database of selected spectra and modern, powerful WIN-NMR software designed by Bruker are provided on the enclosed CD-ROM. The programs provided are 1 D WIN-NMR, WIN-DAISY, WIN-DR and WIN-DYNAMICS, and direct data exchange between all these programs is possible. Readers are shown how they can obtain maximum structural information from their 1 D NMR spectra with time-saving computer assistance. Practical problems that can occur and their solutions are discussed at length using clear, easy-to-follow examples. Both homo- and heteronuclear and first- and second-order spin systems are demonstrated. Moreover, relaxation analysis, nuclear Overhauser effects and magnetic site exchange are all covered in this hands-on guide to NMR spectral analysis.

"... For those who need to analyse complex NMR spectra, this book and CD-ROM combination provide a comprehensive and clear exposition of how to use the software. As such, it will relieve specialist NMR staff of much tutorial effort in a cost-effective manner." (Analyst)

"The complete series will serve as a valuable reference for academic teaching but also for all researchers intended to work in the interesting field of NMR spectroscopy." (Fresenius Environmental Bulletin)
