A book for learning NMR Techniques and their applications in civil engineering and biochemistry

Book Announcement

Bentham Science Publishers

This book describes nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) methods which are used to study translational dynamics of molecules in different complex systems including systems made of synthetic and natural polymers, tissues and the porous heterogeneous systems of different types, such as cement and wood.

The results of proton spin-lattice and spin-spin relaxation, cross-relaxation, pulse field gradient (PFG) NMR in studying diffusion properties and dynamics of molecules in polymer systems of different complexity are reported. In addition to these methods, reports on the use of the double-quantum-filtered (DQF) NMR technique in a study of slow molecular dynamics and properties of systems with anisotropic properties, such as water in hardening cement pastes, are presented. The book also covers applications of one and two dimensional NMR techniques.


About the Author:

Victor V.Rodin initially graduated from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) in 1977. He completed his Ph.D. in Biophysics at the Research Institute of Biophysics (1986), and DSci in macromolecular and colloid chemistry from Moscow State University (1997). His research focuses on new NMR methods to study polymers, natural biopolymers, and construction materials. Rodin has worked in excellent research centers in USA (University of California), France (INRA), UK (University of East Anglia, University of Bristol, University of Surrey) and Austria (Johannes Kepler University of Linz).
