This volume, as does Volume 177, provides a general background of modern NMR techniques, with a specific focus on NMR techniques that pertain to proteins and enzymology, and a "snapshot" of the current state of the art in NMR experimental techniques. These books enable the reader to understand a given technique, to evaluate its strengths and limitations, to decide which is the best approach, and, finally, to design an experiment using the chosen technique to solve a problem.
Biochemists, organic chemists, analytical chemists, biophysicists, physical chemists, and drug company researchers.

Quotes and reviews
@from:Praise for the Volume
@qu:"There is little doubt but that... this is a useful volume to have available at the lab bench."
@qu:"The editors have succeeded in producing a book that can serve as a very good source of information when one wishes to begin working in a new area... The individual chapters generally provide well-balanced, reliable, and up-to-date accounts of the techniques, with adequate references to the major basic papers. This is a good, readable book and a valuable reference volume."
@from:Praise for the Series
@qu:"The Methods in Enzymology series represents the gold-standard."
@qu:"It is a true 'methods' series, including almost every detail from basic theory to sources of equipment and reagents, with timely documentation provided on each page."
@qu:"The series has been following the growing, changing and creation of new areas of science. It should be on the shelves of all libraries in the world as a whole collection."
@source:--CHEMISTRY IN INDUSTRY
@qu:"The appearance of another volume in that excellent series, Methods in Enzymology, is always a cause for appreciation for those who wish to successfully carry out a particular technique or prepare an enzyme or metabolic intermediate without the tiresome prospect of searching through unfamiliar literature and perhaps selecting an unproven method which is not easily reproduced."
@source:--AMERICAN SOCIETY OF MICROBIOLOGY NEWS
@qu:"If we had some way to find the work most often consulted in the laboratory, it could well be the multi-volume series Methods in Enzymology...a great work."
@qu:"A series that has established itself as a definitive reference for biochemists."
