About this book

Introduction

EPR of Free Radicals in Solids: Trends in Methods and Applications, 2nd ed. presents a critical two volume review of the methods and applications of EPR (ESR) for the study of free radical processes and structures in solids. Emphasis is on the progress made in the developments in EPR technology, in the application of sophisticated matrix isolation techniques and in the advancement in quantitative EPR that have occurred since the 1st edition was published. Improvements have been made also at the theoretical level, with the development of methods based on first-principles methods and their application to the calculation of magnetic parameters and to simulation of spectral shapes.

Written by international leading experts in the field, EPR of Free Radicals in Solids I focuses on the trends in experimental and theoretical methods to extract structural and dynamical properties of radicals and spin probes in solid matrices by continuous wave (CW) and pulsed techniques. It presents simulation techniques and computer software for CW and pulsed EPR signals, and also studies quantum effects at low temperature. In this edition, the chapters dealing with quantum chemistry methods for the theoretical interpretation of hyperfine coupling tensors and g-tensors have been much extended and a new chapter on the calculation of zero-field splitting tensors has been added.

This new edition is a valuable resource to both theoreticians and experimentalists active in research involving free radicals, as well as to students of advanced courses in physical chemistry, chemical physics, materials science, biophysics, biochemistry, and related fields.
