The first and ultimate guide for anyone working in transition organometallic chemistry and related fields, providing the background and practical guidance on how to efficiently work with routine research problems in NMR. The book adopts a problem-solving approach with many examples taken from recent literature to show readers how to interpret the data. Perfect for PhD students, postdocs and other newcomers in organometallic and inorganic chemistry, as well as for organic chemists involved in transition metal catalysis.
Paul S. Pregosin received his Ph. D. at the City University of New York. He then carried out postdoctoral research at Queen Mary College, University of London (1970 - 1971), and at the University of Delaware (1971 - 1973). In 1973, he moved to Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, Switzerland, where he became Professor of Inorganic Chemistry in 1987. He has also received the Werner Prize for his work on NMR-spectroscopic studies of transition metal complexes.
