Oxford Chemistry Primers are a series of accessible, concise texts that introduce students to a diverse range of important topics in modern chemistry.



This primer describes succinctly the range of NMR techniques commonly used in modern research, and explains how these experiments actually work, giving a unique perspective on this powerful experimental tool.

  • Focused introductions designed to give students an in-depth understanding of a diverse range of important topics in modern chemistry.
  • Frequent diagrams, margin notes, and definitions support students in their learning.
  • Questions at the end of every chapter and full worked solutions online encourage active learning and promote deep understanding.

New to this edition

  • An Online Resource Centre provides full worked solutions to the end-of-chapter exercises for students, and downloadable figures for instructors.
  • End of chapter exercises enable the reader to test their understanding of the concepts being described.
  • More complex problems have been added to Part B, alongside explanations of how they may be solved using computer software.
  • The appendices, which further explain mathematical concepts mentioned in the text, have been expanded and moved to the end of the book.
