Synopses & Reviews
The great importance of NMR in many areas of scientific research is once again highlighted in this volume of Annual Reports on NMR Spectroscopy. The first chapter by J.A. Tossell (University of Maryland, USA) is on "Theoretical and Experimental Studies on 19F NMR Shieldings in Mineral Glasses, Zeolites and Related Silsequioxanes". J.T. Gerig (University of California at Santa Barbara, USA) reports on "NOE Studies of Solvent-Solute Interactions". A state-of-the-art account of "DFT Computations of Transition Metal Chemical Shifts" is given by Michael Buehl, Max Plank Institute, Muelheim an der Ruhr, Germany. This is followed by a contribution from Daniel Huster, Martin Luther University Halle-Wittemberg, Germany on "Solid-State NMR Studies of Collagen Structure and Dynamics in Isolated Fibrils and in Biological Tissues".
J. Kidric, National Institute of Chemistry, Ljubljana, Slovenia reports on "NMR Studies of Beverage" and this is followed by a "Contribution of NMR Spectroscopy to Flavour Release and Perception" by L. Tavel, E. Guichard and C. Moreau, INRA, Dijon, France. The final chapter is by Jeffrey L. White (Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, USA) on "Polymer Blend Miscibility".
