not yet rated|write a review
Taking the reader through the underlying principles of molecular translational dynamics, this book outlines the ways in which magnetic resonance, through the use of magnetic field gradients, can reveal those dynamics. The measurement of diffusion and flow, over different length and timescales, provides unique insight regarding fluid interactions with porous materials, as well as molecular organisation in soft matter and complex fluids. The book covers both time and frequency domain methodologies, as well as advances in scattering and diffraction methods, multidimensional exchange and correlation experiments and orientational correlation methods ideal for studying anisotropic environments. At the heart of these new methods residesthe ubiquitous spin echo, a phenomenon whose discovery underpins nearly every major development in magnetic resonance methodology. Measuring molecular translational motion does not require high spectral resolution and so finds application in new NMR technologies concerned with "outside thelaboratory" applications, in geophysics and petroleum physics, in horticulture, in food technology, in security screening, and in environmental monitoring.

The late Paul Callaghan was a world leader in the use of magnetic field gradients to measure molecular translational motion, having led most of the major advances for the past 30 years. He was made Professor of Physics in 1984, and was appointed Alan MacDiarmid Professor of Physical Sciences in 2001. The sole-authored and co-authored ...

Editorial Reviews

"This book is most likely going to become 'the' book for NMR-based studies of translational dynamics for quite some time: a great reference point not just for NMR in translational dynamics but for everyone interested in NMR applications beyond mere chemical structure determination." --Nikolaus Nestle, Technical University, Darmstadt, Germany
