    The discussion presented in this module was intended to introduce NMR at an introductory level with a focus on its application for quantitative measurements. Students interested in a deeper treatment of NMR theory are encouraged to review the resources below:


    • Understanding NMR Spectroscopy by James Keeler, Wiley (2005).
    • High-Resolution NMR Techniques in Organic Chemistry by Timothy Claridge, Elsevier (1999).
    • Spin Choreography: Basic Steps in High Resolution NMR by Ray Freeman, Oxford University Press (1999).
    • "Modern NMR Spectroscopy: A Guide for Chemists", 2nd Edition, by Jeremy K. M. Sanders and Brian K. Hunter, Oxford University Press, 1993.

    In addition to the additional references in the Advanced NMR Theory section, the resources listed below provide additional information on quantitative NMR measurements.
