High Resolution NMR of Macromolecules presents the development in the NMR study of polymers. This book discusses the exciting area of application of NMR to polymer science as the result of the more general accessibility of instruments of high magnetic field.
Organized into 15 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the spectral analysis and the dependence of chemical shifts and J couplings on structure. This text then discusses the isomerism in polymer chains without special reference to NMR. Other chapters consider the interpretation of synthetic polymer spectra in terms of structure, stereochemical configuration, conformation, and chain growth mechanism. This book discusses as well the application of high resolution NMR to the study of nucleic acids, which has not been so well developed as that of polypeptides and proteins. The final chapter deals with biopolymers and their model compounds.
This book is a valuable resource for chemists and research workers.
