Key Features

  • Reflects all advances in the field in a completely updated new edition
  • Presents new material on self-orientation residual dipolar couplings, solid state NMR, dynamic nuclear polarization, and paramagnetic restraints for structure calculations
  • Includes information relevant to paramagnetic molecules, metallobiomolecules, paramagnetic compounds, and paramagnetic NMR spectroscopy
  • Presents specific examples of paramagnetic inorganic species and experimental techniques for structure characterization


NMR of Paramagnetic Molecules: Applications to Metallobiomolecules and Models, Second Edition, is a self-contained, comprehensive reference for chemists, physicists, and life scientists whose research involves analyzing paramagnetic compounds. Since the previous edition of this book was published, there have been many advancements in the field of paramagnetic NMR spectroscopy. This completely updated and expanded edition contains the latest fundamental theory and methods for mastery of this analytical technique. Users will learn how to interpret the NMR spectra of paramagnetic molecules, improve experimental techniques, and strengthen their understanding of the underlying theory and applications.

Ivano Bertini

Ivano Bertini was born on December 6, 1940, in Pisa, Italy. He gained his Ph.D. at the University of Florence, Italy, in 1964 and the Libera Docenza in 1969. He became Full Professor of General and Inorganic Chemistry in 1975 at the University of Florence. In 1999, he founded the Magnetic Resonance Center (CERM) at the University of Florence, a major NMR infrastructure in the Life Sciences. Bertini's research focused on the structure-function relationship of metalloproteins, explored with biophysical methods. He is particularly known for using NMR spectroscopy and for pioneering the exploitation of genome data banks, most recently to identify pharmaceutical targets. He pursued advancements in technology for solution structure determination, particularly for paramagnetic metalloproteins, and developed specific software applications. Bertini published over 650 research articles and has solved more than 150 protein structures. He was also on the editorial staff or advisory board of over 20 journals in chemistry, biochemistry, and inorganic chemistry, including ChemBioChem, ChemMedChem, and the European Journal of Inorganic Chemistry Bertini passed away in 2012 while still fully scientifically active.
