About this book
Field-cycling NMR relaxometry is evolving into a methodology of widespread interest with recent technological developments resulting in powerful and versatile commercial instruments. Polymers, liquid crystals, biomaterials, porous media, tissue, cement and many other materials of practical importance can be studied using this technique.
This book summarises the expertise of leading scientists in the area and the editor is well placed, after four decades of working in this field, to ensure a broad ranging and high quality title. Starting with an overview of the basic principles of the technique and the scope of its use, the content then develops to look at theory, instrumentation, practical limitations and applications in different systems.
Newcomers to the field will find this book invaluable for successful use of the technique. Researchers already in academic and industrial settings, interested in molecular dynamics and magnetic resonance, will discover an important addition to the literature.
Rainer Kimmich is an emerited professor of physics at the University of Ulm. The subject of the proposed book, Field-Cycling NMR Relaxometry, is the research methodology he has been working on over four decades starting in the seminal stages of the technique. A large part of the roughly 300 papers he has authored or co-authored refer to this technology and its applications. He has published two monographs including chapters on this variant of NMR relaxometry.
