Applications of nuclear shielding
This chapter reports a selection of recent publications on the application of nuclear shielding, related NMR chemical shifts and NMR lineshapes, which have been published from 1 June 2011 to 31 May 2012. The number of the papers in this field is rapidly increasing, covering practically all magnetically active nuclei. Therefore, a selection of related publications was necessary and generally it was restricted to widely available and common journals published in English. The papers where chemical shifts were applied only for simple chemical assignment and chemical structure determination have not been included. The survey of the papers starts from those devoted to the group 1 elements (1H, 2H, 3H, 6,7Li, 23Na, 39K, 87Rb, 133Cs) and continues along the Periodic Table up to the elements of group 18 (3He, 129,131Xe).
