NMR of Chemically Exchanging Systems presents an integrated density matrix formalism for calculating NMR lineshapes for all types of exchanging systems. This book explores a variety of conditions, which is applicable to both liquids and liquid crystals.
Organized into nine chapters, this book begins with an overview of the derivation of the absorption due to a single spin utilizing the classical Bloch equation as a means for introducing some of the concepts concerned in obtaining the absorption lineshape. This text then examines the derivation of the total density matrix equation. Other chapters consider the density matrix equation for a general exchanging system at high rf power and illustrate how one has to solve for all the elements of the density matrix. The final chapter presents some remarks on transients as applied to chemically exchanging systems.
This book is a valuable resource for scientists and researchers who are interested in NMR spectroscopy.
