NMR for Physical and Biological Scientists

Author: Thomas C. Pochapsky
Publisher: Garland Science
ISBN: 9781136843723
Release Date: 2006-06-30
Genre: Science

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectroscopy is a dynamic way for scientists of all kinds to investigate the physical, chemical, and biological properties of matter. Its many applications make it a versatile tool previously subject to monolithic treatment in reference-style texts. Based on a course taught for over ten years at Brandeis University, this is the first textbook on NMR spectroscopy for a one-semester course or self-instruction. In keeping with the authors' efforts to make it a useful textbook, they have included problems at the end of each chapter. The book not only covers the latest developments in the field, such as GOESY (Gradient Enhanced Overhauser Spectroscopy) and multidimensional NMR, but includes practical examples using real spectra and associated problem sets. Assuming the reader has a background of chemistry, physics and calculus, this textbook will be ideal for graduate students in chemistry and biochemistry, as well as biology, physics, and biophysics. NMR for Physical and Biological Scientists will also be useful to medical schools, research facilities, and the many chemical, pharmaceutical, and biotech firms that offer in-house instruction on NMR spectroscopy.

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9781402066801
Release Date: 2008-04-01
Genre: Science

During teaching NMR to students and researchers, we felt the need for a text-book which can cover modern trends in the application of NMR to biological systems. This book covers the entire area of NMR in Biological Sciences (Biomolecules, cells and tissues, animals, plants and drug design). As well as being useful to researchers, this is an excellent book for teaching a course on NMR in Biological Systems.

Carbon 13 NMR of Flavonoids

Author: P.K. Agrawal
Publisher: Elsevier
ISBN: 9781483290744
Release Date: 2013-10-22
Genre: Science

This detailed treatise is written for chemists who are not NMR spectroscopists but who wish to use carbon-13 NMR spectroscopy. It shows why measurement of carbon-13 NMR is needed and explains how the method can - or should - be used for rapid characterization of flavonoids, one of the most diverse and widespread groups of natural constituents. The first part of the book presents background information and discussion of the essential aspects of flavonoids and carbon-13 NMR spectroscopy and demonstrates its significant role in the revision of several earlier established chemical structures. It discusses various one- and two-dimensional NMR spectroscopic techniques and other relevant experimental methodologies for the interpretation of spectral details which enable individual resonance lines to be associated with the appropriate carbons in a molecule. The second part provides a comprehensive coverage of the carbon-13 chemical shifts of various classes and subclasses of flavonoids. It also illustrates how to utilize carbon-13 data to gain information for the determination of the nature, number and site of any substituent in flavonoids. Vital information for the differential and complete structure elucidation of the various classes of flavonoids by carbon-13 NMR shielding data is described in-depth in the third part of the book. The book will be welcomed by all those working in natural product chemistry who will appreciate the non-mathematical approach and the fact that such a wealth of theoretical and practical information has been assembled in a single volume.

Visual Cultures in Science and Technology

Author: Klaus Hentschel
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA
ISBN: 9780198717874
Release Date: 2014
Genre: Science

This book offers a broad, comparative survey of a booming field within the history of science: the history, generation, use, and function of images in scientific practice. It explores every aspect of visuality in science, arguing for the concept of visual domains. What makes a good scientific image? What cultural baggage is essential to it? How are imagery and text interwined? The interdisciplinary field of visual studies borders on the history of the arts andculture. Intended for a general audience, the present book is based on an extensive range of historical sources in the natural sciences, technology and medicine, particularly physics, astronomy, andchemistry. The temporal context is the early-modern period up to the late 20th century.

Functional Studies Using NMR

Author: V. Ralph McCready
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9781447114109
Release Date: 2012-12-06
Genre: Medical

This volume is based on a series of lectures delivered at a one-day teach ing symposium on functional and metabolic aspects of NMR measure ments held at the Middlesex Hospital Medical School on 1st September 1985 as a part of the European Nuclear Medicine Society Congress. Currently the major emphasis in medical NMR in vivo is on its poten tial to image and display abnormalities in conventional radiological im ages, providing increased contrast between normal and abnormal tissue, improved definition of vasculature, and possibly an increased potential for differential diagnosis. Although these areas are undeniably of major importance, it is probable that NMR will continue to complement con ventional measurement methods. The major potential benefits to be de rived from in vivo NMR measurements are likely to arise from its use as an instrument for functional and metabolic studies in both clinical re search and in the everyday management of patients. It is to this area that this volume is directed.

Nuclear magnetic resonance imaging in medicine and biology

Since the first publications on the subject in 1973, NMR imaging has grown rapidly and has evolved a wide variety of imaging techniques and systems. This book gives the reader a sound physical understanding of the theoretical and practical aspects of the field. Morris explains the basic theory and describes the imaging systems most frequently encountered, including the two- and three-dimensional methods used in commercial systems. Instrumentation and magnet choice and design are fully discussed, and there is an extensive chapter on applications. For medical physicists, NMR imaging researchers, radiologists, clinicians, and scientists and engineers involved in NMR imaging development.
