NMR of Ordered Liquids gives a unique overview of the scope and limitations of the NMR of oriented liquids, based on contributions from acknowledged experts in the field. The book consists of four sections: -detailed general introduction which covers the basic principles and sophisticated experimental techniques; -wide variety of applications ranging from NMR studies of small atoms and molecules in anisotropic liquids to the utilization of residual dipolar couplings for structure determination of biological molecules; -summary of the sophisticated theoretical treatments, computer simulations, and phenomenological models for anisotropic intermolecular interactions that are widely used in the analysis of experimental results; -overview of the dynamical aspects and relaxation processes relevant for orientationally ordered molecules.This book deserves a place on the book shelf of all those active or interested in the field of NMR of ordered liquids. The book starts from first principles before treating all relevant state-of-the-art theoretical and experimental methods. As a result, it is eminently suitable as an authoritative guide for specialized graduate courses. This book will be an invaluable resource for researchers and graduate students in the fields of NMR and Liquid Crystals, scientists and students who wish to get an overview of modern developments of NMR of Oriented Liquids, and university staff involved in the teaching of spectroscopic methods. It is especially useful for students and experts who are interested in NMR and its application to the study of liquid crystals, membranes and protein structure determination.
