Burton D.R. () Paramagnetic Ions as Relaxation Probes in Biological Systems. In: Bertini I., Drago R.S. (eds) ESR and NMR of Paramagnetic Species in Biological and Related Systems. Nato Advanced Study Institutes Series (Series C — Mathematical and Physical Sciences), vol Cited by: 4. During teaching NMR to students and researchers, we felt the need for a text-book which can cover modern trends in the application of NMR to biological systems. This book covers the entire area of NMR in Biological Sciences (Biomolecules, cells and tissues, animals, plants and drug design). Due to the decreased abundance in biological systems of unpaired electrons (detected by the technique) and the short half-lives of related species such as free radicals, ESR is generally conducted with introduction of a paramagnetic substance which acts as a reporter. This book contains 51 chapters, and begins with reviews of NMR investigations of biological macromolecules, including proteins, amino acids, and glycylglycine copper (II). Considerable chapters are devoted to numerous biological studies using the electronic paramagnetic resonance (EPR), thus introducing the branch of science called submolecular.
Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) or electron spin resonance (ESR) spectroscopy is a method for studying materials with unpaired basic concepts of EPR are analogous to those of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), but it is electron spins that are excited instead of the spins of atomic spectroscopy is particularly useful for studying metal complexes or organic radicals. Bertini I., Drago R.S. (Eds.), ESR and NMR of Paramagnetic Species in Biological and Related Systems, Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Study Institute, Acquafredda di Maratea, Italy, June , , Kluwer, Boston, , ISBN: Paramagnetic nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy refers to nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy of paramagnetic compounds. Although most NMR measurements are conducted on diamagnetic compounds, paramagnetic samples are also amenable to analysis and give rise to special effects indicated by a wide chemical shift range and broadened signals. Solution NMR of Paramagnetic Molecules is unique in dealing with these matters. The scope is that of presenting a complete description, which is both rigorous and pictorial, of theory and experiments of NMR of paramagnetic molecules in solution. Pertinent examples are by:
