    Description / Table of Contents: The basis of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy -- Spectroscopic parameters in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance -- Basic NMR experiments -- Biomolecular NMR
    Abstract: This book intends to be an easy and concise introduction to the field of nuclear magnetic resonance or NMR, which has revolutionized life sciences in the last twenty years. A significant part of the progress observed in scientific areas like Chemistry, Biology or Medicine can be ascribed to the development experienced by NMR in recent times. Many of the books currently available on NMR deal with the theoretical basis and some of its main applications, but they generally demand a strong background in Physics and Mathematics for a full understanding. This book is aimed to a wide scientific audience, trying to introduce NMR by making all possible effort to remove, without losing any formality and rigor, most of the theoretical jargon that is present in other NMR books. Furthermore, illustrations are provided that show all the basic concepts using a naive vector formalism, or using a simplified approach to the particular NMR-technique described. The intention has been to show simply the foundations and main concepts of NMR, rather than seeking thorough mathematical expressions

    Notes: It has been found that protein NH protons on top of a peptide group plane experience large upfield conformation shifts. The joint analysis of this effect and other known effects of the peptide group on proton chemical shifts has led to a two-term empirical expression for peptide group proton chemical shift computation as a function of protein backbone conformation. Both terms are expressed by McConnell's point-dipole shielding expressions, one referred to an axis perpendicular to the peptide plane and origin in the coordinate centre of the OCN atoms and the other referred to an axis along the carbonyl bond and origin close to the oxygen atom. Values for the two constants have been determined by least-squares fitting of the C-α, H and amide NH chemical shifts of the protein ubiquitin. As a cross-check on the validity of the expression, the C-α, H and NH shifts of ribonuclease and BPTI (basic pancreatic trypsin inhibitor) have been computed. The general agreement between the observed and computed shifts and the correlation coefficients found (0.72 on average) indicate that the expression accounts for the main physical effects of the protein peptide group on the proton chemical shifts. It is shown that, together with ring current shifts, the expression explains the main characteristics of the C-α, H and amide NH chemical shifts in proteins.
