Synopses & Reviews
This volume examines and describes the role of NMR in supporting and extending modern technology. It is aimed mainly at the question, `What is NMR doing to assist modern technology?' and to some degree points to what NMR could be doing in industry. Chapters written by some of the international leaders in the development and applications of NMR range from introductory principles to advanced applications that describe areas currently relevant to modern industrial activity, or which could be. The introductory coverage includes a brief description of the fundamental basis of NMR phenomena for solids and liquids, and detailed descriptions of line-broadening interactions and line-narrowing techniques for solid samples. Applications are described for biological and synthetic polymers, coal, silicas, zeolites, glasses, ceramics, composites, and catalysts, and include 2-D approaches and process-control applications. The intended level is that of a first or second year graduate student in chemistry, or a practicing scientist or engineer in industry.
