The renowned Oxford Chemistry Primers series, which provides focused introductions to a range of important topics in chemistry, has been refreshed and updated to suit the needs of today's students, lecturers, and postgraduate researchers. The rigorous, yet accessible, treatment of each subject area is ideal for those wanting a primer in a given topic to prepare them for more advanced study or research. Moreover, cutting-edge examples and applications throughout the texts show the relevance of the chemistry being described to current research and industry. 

The learning features provided, including questions at the end of every chapter and online multiple-choice questions, encourage active learning and promote understanding. Furthermore, frequent diagrams, margin notes, and glossary definitions all help to enhance a student's understanding of these essential areas of chemistry. 

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance offers a concise and accessible introduction to the physical principles of liquid-state NMR, a powerful technique for probing molecular structures. Examples, applications, and exercises are provided throughout to enable beginning undergraduates to get to grips with this important analytical technique.

This book is indisputably a must have for any student, or even teacher, in the field of nuclear magnetic resonance. It is a perfect format for preparing readers for more advanced studies on the topic. Theoretical explanations are illustrated by many examples and applications, and this second edition has been completed with a series of exercises. - Sabine Bouguet-Bonnet, Universite de Lorraine, J.

This primer fully deserves to be widely adopted by students (and teachers) of NMR spectroscopy. This book is a complete and very accessible tool for understanding the origin and significance of the basic NMR parameters. - Sabine Bouguet-Bonnet, Universite de Lorraine, J. Appl. Cryst.
