While the principles of NMR are increasingly well-known and today form a normal part of any undergraduate chemistry course, it is still true to say that the average chemist will associate NMR with a technique of considerable sophistication for resolving problems of structural analysis. Unfortunately, low resolution NMR and its applications receive little attention, but the industrial interest in this area is considerable and growing rapidly.
