"Solid-state NMR is an extraordinarily powerful method that is widely applied in materials chemistry and is constantly being developed through application of new techniques and approaches. As the most exciting direction of modem materials science, the controlled design of new materials requires constant application of new methods. Although young scientists are familiar with solution NMR, the solid-state version of this method often remains a black box, so this book describes experimental problems in solid-state NMR while avoiding unnecessary theoretical details. The text covers amorphous and diamagnetic materials, paramagnetic effects, the porous system, and more"--Provided by publisher.

"Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), discovered as physical phenomenon by Bloch and Purcell in 1945, rapidly became the theoretical basis for of a powerful and most popular analytical method, which is widely applied in different fields of modern fundamental and applied science, and also medicine and industry. This circumstance is easy explained by capability of NMR to solve rapidly a large number of practical tasks which can be connected not only with structural descriptions of systems on macro and/or molecular levels but also identifications of their various dynamic behavior often responsible for mechanical properties of materials"--Provided by publisher.
