"Introduction to Solid State NMR Spectroscopy" is written for undergraduate and graduate students of chemistry, either taking a course in advanced or solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy or undertaking research projects where solid-state NMR is likely to be a major investigative technique. It will also serve as a practical introduction in industry, where the techniques can provide new or complementary information to supplement other investigative techniques. By covering solid-state NMR spectroscopy in a clear, straightforward and approachable way with detailed descriptions of the major solid-state NMR experiments focussing on what the experiments do and what they tell the researcher, this book will serve as an ideal introduction to the subject. These descriptions are backed up by separate mathematical explanations for those who wish to gain a more sophisticated quantitative understanding of the phenomena. With additional coverage of the practical implementation of solid-state NMR experiments integrated into the discussion, this book will be essential reading for all those using, or about to use, solid-state NMR spectroscopy. Dr Melinda Duer is a senior lecturer in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK.
