This is all done very clearly, drawing on some suitably illustrative examples. These sections constitute the major part of the book. There is then a brief section on the use of NMR to probe structure in oligosaccharides. This does not convey the fact that when used in the determination of primary structure, NMR is generally applied in conjunction with other analytical techniques, and such studies are far more common than determinations of conformation in oligosaccharides.

Nucleic acids are also dealt with briefly, and in a rather misleading way. RNA solution structures are somewhat harder to determine, but often even fairly coarse structural information from NMR is valuable. Meanwhile, crystal structures of nucleic acids can be prone to distortions due to crystal packing forces, which complicates comparison with NMR solution structures.

Otherwise, this section is a good introduction to the various imaging techniques. Finally, there is a useful bibliography.

This list is confined to books, whilst a rather too limited number of journal papers are referenced in the text.

So here we have a book which is good in places, but not so good in others, The emphasis of the book is on the use of NMR to determine protein structures, and to a lesser extent, NMR imaging. These sections are done well, but the other topics are covered only briefly and less satisfactorily. Some biologically interesting applications of NMR are either absent such as the analysis of fluids or treated rather too briefly as with in vivo spectroscopy of metabolites.

In a number of respects, a second edition could be much improved. In the meantime, I would recommend this first edition to biology students, both undergraduate and postgraduate.

The price is certainly an important factor in this, and although there are some shortcomings, the good parts do indeed provide useful introductions to certain aspects of biological NMR. Oxford University Press, Oxford.

ISBN It is relatively easy to understand the principles behind the determination of the structure of small organic molecules, like ethanol, by high resolution NMR. As the size of the molecules increases, more sophisticated NMR methods need to be used in order to achieve resolution of the individual NMR lines and to aid spectral analysis.

A description of these methods, which include multidimensional NMR and ways to obtain the distance information required for obtaining the three-dimensional structure, is much more difficult. For biological macromolecules and membranes, there is the added problem of slow tumbling and the need to use solid state NMR methods to obtain knowledge of the structure.

Dr Evans holds the view which I share that empirical descriptions of these sophisticated NMR methods are unsatisfactory and do not give the reader a framework for understanding the next generation of biomolecular NMR experiments appearing in the literature.

He adopts a product operator formalism which allows the complex pulse sequences used in modern NMR spectroscopy to be described logically.

The mathematics needed is at the level of a subsidiary course supporting undergraduate studies in Chemistry or Physics. The description of product operators is allocated only two pages with a four page appendix describing its application to COSY pulse sequences for solution NMR and echo pulse sequences for solid state NMR.

This is insufficient introduction to a topic upon which much of the subsequent methodology depends and the reader would need to achieve an understanding of the operator formalism through additional reading.

The remainder of the book, approximately two-thirds of the total content, is devoted to biomolecular applications. Dr Evans wisely uses a worked examples approach rather than attempting exhaustive coverage of the literature.

The sections describing applications to proteins are particularly strong with good reference to the current literature and include studies of protein folding and the molecular basis for catalysis by enzymes. The sections describing the use of NMR in the study of nucleic acids, carbohydrates and membranes are much shorter but, again, include thoughtful reference lists.

Although there are many illustrations in the book, they are variable in their quality and do not always clarify the text. First published: Print ISBN: About this book Confused by medical terms?
