Modern Methods in Solid-state NMR: A Practitioner's Guide Editor: Paul Hodgkinson

About this book

Solid-state NMR covers an enormous range of material types and experimental techniques. Although the basic instrumentation and techniques of solids NMR are readily accessible, there can be significant barriers, even for existing experts, to exploring the bewildering array of more sophisticated techniques. In this unique volume, a range of experts in different areas of modern solid-state NMR explain about their area of expertise, emphasising the “practical aspects” of implementing different techniques, and illustrating what questions can and cannot be addressed. Later chapters address complex materials, showing how different NMR techniques discussed in earlier chapters can be brought together to characterise important materials types. The volume as a whole focusses on topics relevant to the developing field of “NMR crystallography” – the use of solids NMR as a complement to diffraction crystallography.
This book is an ideal complement to existing introductory texts and reviews on solid-state NMR. New researchers wanting to understand new areas of solid-state NMR will find each chapter to be the equivalent to spending time in the laboratory of an internationally leading expert, learning the hints and tips that make the difference between knowing about a technique and being ready to put it into action. With no equivalent on the market, it will be of interest to every solid-state NMR researcher (academic and postgraduate) working in the chemical sciences.

Author information

Dr Paul Hodgkinson is a Reader in Magnetic Resonance at Durham University, UK. His research combines interests in technique development and methodology in solid-state NMR as well as applications to chemical problems. Applications of NMR have been in the area of structural chemistry, particularly of pharmaceutical materials and systems with mobility, such as soft solids and solvates. A particular interest is in combining information from diffraction-based experiments, NMR and computation of NMR parameters (using DFT codes), and dynamics (molecular dynamics simulations).
