This text is aimed at people who have some familiarity with high-resolution NMR and who wish to deepen their understanding of how NMR experiments actually 'work'. This revised and updated edition takes the same approach as the highly-acclaimed first edition. The text concentrates on the description of commonly-used experiments and explains in detail the theory behind how such experiments work. The quantum mechanical tools needed to analyse pulse sequences are introduced set by step, but the approach is relatively informal with the emphasis on obtaining a good understanding of how the experiments actually work. The use of two-colour printing and a new larger format improves the readability of the text. In addition, a number of new topics have been introduced:
* How product operators can be extended to describe experiments in AX2 and AX3 spin systems, thus making it possible to discuss the important APT, INEPT and DEPT experiments often used in carbon-13 NMR.
* Spin system analysis i.e. how shifts and couplings can be extracted from strongly-coupled (second-order) spectra.
* How the presence of chemically equivalent spins leads to spectral features which are somewhat unusual and possibly misleading, even at high magnetic fields.
* A discussion of chemical exchange effects has been introduced in order to help with the explanation of transverse relaxation.
* The double-quantum spectroscopy of a three-spin system is now considered in more detail.

Format: Taschenbuch
Der Keeler ist wie der Name sagt dazu gut um NMR zu verstehen. Er ist schon ein vertiefendes Buch, startet aber auf einem normalen Niveau. Es behandelt zur Erklärung was bei einem NMR-Versuch gemessen wird sowohl die Quantenmechanik und das Vektormodell. Das Buch geht auch sehr ins Detail, hab nicht so viel gelesen. Es erklärt wie und warum die unterschiedlichen Spektren aufgenommen werden.
+ Fourier Transformation gut erklärt
+ gut leserlich geschrieben
+ auf H und C NMR bezogen
+ umfangreich, zu umfangreich um sich nur einen Überblick zu verschafen
- nicht so gut für Einsteiger

Alles in allem gut

Very reader friendly NMR textbook 30. Mai 2006
Von Magnus Kjaergaard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Dr. Keeler's is called "Understanding NMR spectroscopy", and that is exactly what it will help you do. He makes very few assumptions about previous knowledge of math and quantum physics. He explains abstract concepts using good analogies. I have tried to read multiple NMR textbooks, and this is by far the most readable... Excellent work Dr. Keeler.... However you should realise what this book is NOT. It is not about how to record and analyze NMR data and it is not an advanced textbook, but aimed for people new to the field with need to understand how an NMR experiment works.

Great book arrived in great quality 14. Juli 2010
Von D. Koveal - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Don't worry-- it's worth the money. James Keeler does a fantastic job of explaining basic and advanced NMR topics in this second edition of Understanding NMR Spectroscopy. If you are just learning NMR spectroscopy for the first time, Keeler gives the most intuitive descriptions, and his writing is very easy to follow. If you are past the basics and looking for a more in-depth study, then this is still the book for you.

Excellent Introduction 21. Mai 2008
Von Ken from Doylestown - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book grew out of a series of lecture notes for various summer schools and graduate courses. The original lecture notes can be downloaded from the web. For several years, I was reluctant to buy this book because I thought the lecture notes from the web and the book are not much different. How wrong can I be. The web version contains a number of typos and several sections are not numbered correctly. The book is virtually free from typos and the presentation is much better. You can read from the book that the author has a lot of teaching experience. Although the book mainly deals with the theoretical aspects of the modern nmr, the math to understand the book is only freshman math. The only math that you need is:

Trigonometry of compound angles and half angles
Simple first order differential equation
Simple manipulation of complex numbers
Operator algebra, and
Elementary matrix algebra

Do not be intimidated by the math. All the math, except matrix, that is needed can basically be found in Appendix A. There is nothing complex in the math used throughout the book. All the mathematical manipulations are presented in a step by step fashion. The book deals mainly with the most popular nmr techniques such as COSY, DQF-COSY and NOE. Because the book focuses on the theoretical aspects of nmr, it hardly touches on any spectrum interpretations. Sometimes, I feel the book a little bit dry. Virtual coupling, an important concept in TOCSY, is not discussed in Keeler's book. However, do not get me wrong. This is a book I enjoy reading very much. The chapters on relaxation and coherence transfer pathway, phase cycle and pulsed of field gradient are well presented.

How does this book compare with other nmr books? Compare with Neil Jacobsen's book "NMR Spectroscopy Explained", I still like
Jacobsen's book more. Jacobsen's book is more detailed and contains a lot more information. Furthermore , it covers spectrum interpretation and dynamic nmr. Anyone seriously interested in nmr spectroscopy should have this and Jacobsen's books in his/her library.

You may ask; How about Levitt's book " Spin Dynamics". I have never read this book. The second edition of this book just came out in April this year. I bought a copy and Levitt's book will be my reading project for this summer (over 700 pages).

It is still the best book on basic NMR 4. September 2012
Von Ken from Doylestown - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I must say that the more I read this book, the more I like it. I read the book from cover to cover. Some new materials have been added in the second edition. A new chapter on product operator analysis of spin systems such as AX2 and AX3. These additions make it possible to discuss topics such as DEPT and APT techniques. Another addition is the discussion on double quantum spectroscopy. The chatper on relaxation had been completely re-organized. The use of 2 colors makes the illustraions much better. All the other chapters are the same as the first edition.

When I reviewed the first edition, I did not look at the problems at the end of each chapter. This time I looked at the problems at the end of each chapter and went through each of them. The problems are not tricky. However, they do reinforce what is discussed in the text and are very informative. The spin evolution due to offset and couplings in a pulse sequence can make the mathematics confusing on first reading. Attempting the problems helps one to understand much better. Anyone who seriously wishes in understanding NMR should attempt all the problems at the end of each chapter. As I said in my previous review, the mathematical techniques that are used throughout the book are fairly elementary. Any person with training in freshman mathematics should have no problems in understanding the mathematics. The author presented all the mathematics in a step by step fashion. The use of quantum mechanics is minimal. 90% of mathematics is operator algebra and the use of trigonometric identities. These two mathematical techniques are used repeatedly to understand pulse sequences and spectral appearances of common 2-D techniques such as COSY, HSQC, HMBC and NOESY.It is amazing that such simple mathematical techniques can lead one to understand so much about NMR spectroscopy. If you understand what is in the text, you should have no difficulties in working out the problems at the end of each chapter. The solution manual to the problems can be downloaded from the web and is extremely helpful.

Although I have not completely finished reading Levitt's book, "Spin Dynamics", I have read over 400 pages. I must say that I like this book more. The approaches of these two books are very different. I feel that this book is more coherent. Levitt did not present the mathematics in a step by step fashion like this book. I am not saying that Levitt's book is bad, it is just that this book is better.

Compared with Neil Jacobsen's book, "NMR Spectroscopy Explained", it is hard to decide which is a better book. Jacobsen's book has more material but it costs much more (>$100). However, there are areas that Jacobsen's book does not cover very well. The chapter on relaxation in Jacobsen book is relatively light. There is only one paragraph on chemical shift anisotropy. Keeler's book gives a very thorough mathematical treatment on relaxation due to dipolar-dipolar interaction and chemical shift anisotropy. Whereas Jacobsen's book has many organic chemistry examples, Keeler's book mainly deals with mathematical aspect of NMR using operator algebra. There are no exercise at the end of each chapter in Jacobsen's book. If you just want to buy one NMR book, I would recommend Jacobsen's because it covers most of the stuff in Keeler's book and has more. As far as clarity in the exposition of the subject of NMR spectroscopy is concerned, there are very few books that can rival these two books. My recommendation is to have both.

If you have the first edition, I do not think you will regret if you purchase the second edition. The Kindle edition is now available and is only $30. I went through the Kindle edition on Amazon.com, the electronic edition is as good as the print copy.

Excellent book for an early grad student 21. August 2007
Von Michael Clarkson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Keeler's book is a very clear exposition of the physical basis and quantum mechanical underpinnings of modern NMR experiments. Because it is fundamentally based on the quantum mechanics, it is, I feel, a better introduction to heteronuclear NMR than the popular book by Claridge. At the same time, Keeler avoids the dense pages of mathematics that can make Cavanagh et al.'s excellent book intimidating to students who are not experts on quantum mechanics. An additional plus for me was Keeler's refreshingly clear description of the physical origins of T2 relaxation.

At the same time, there are some deficiencies here. Keeler does not go into chemical exchange effects in any depth, and I do not believe he mentions REX at all. There is also no discussion of residual dipolar couplings, the model-free dynamics formalism, or diffusion experiments. Pulsed-field gradients and phase-cycling are presented almost as an afterthought. The discusisons of coherence order and raising/lowering operators leave something to be desired and the later chapters in which they appear are structured awkwardly. Keeler deals exclusively with dipolar systems in liquids, limitations that may make this text inappropriate for some labs.

That said, for someone who's had some exposure to NMR (in, say, an organic chemistry course) this is an excellent, clear tour of some theoretical NMR basics that can provide a useful framework for approaching more comprehensive texts. Graduate students without a stong background in physical chemistry who intend to perform advanced work in NMR may find this book particularly helpful.
