This new title in the Oxford Chemistry Primers series provides an introductory survey of the magnetic properties of chemical compounds with a particular focus, later in the book, on paramagnets. It also illustrates the applications of both susceptibility measurements and EPR spectra in the characterisation of electronic structures. The uses of


  • A much needed elementary introduction to the field of Magnetochemistry
  • Assumes a minimal amount of background knowledge of the physical concepts underlying the subject
  • Highlights the practical applications of the theory in magnetics technology
  • Oxford Chemistry Primers are affordable and accessible
