NMR Spectroscopy in Inorganic Chemistry by Jonathan A. Iggo (Oxford Chemistry Primer #83)


Submitted by Maggie Geselbracht, Reed College
This is a nice companion or reference text for inorganic lecture or laboratory courses that feature multinuclear NMR spectroscopy.  No prior knowledge of NMR is assumed.  The real strength of this volume is the first chapter on Fundamentals, which explains the basics of how NMR spectroscopy works including spin-spin coupling.  Subsequent chapters discuss the application of NMR in Structure Determination and in understanding Dynamic Processes focusing on a wide range of examples from inorganic chemistry.  A brief final chapter on NMR in The Solid State really only introduces the complications encountered in solid state NMR rather than providing the reader any real content in this area.  $22.50 for paperback, 96 pages.
