In one didactically uniform volume, this book covers experimental equipment and methodological concepts while providing numerous examples in biomaterials, polymers and inorganic substances. The topics covered range from theoretical background knowledge to practical applications and solutions. The whole is rounded off by a glossary, literature and a summary at the end of the chapters, making this a handy textbook for postgraduate courses.

Marco Geppi graduated in chemistry at the Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa on the topic "Study of polymeric materials by means of solid state NMR". His further research activities brought him to Italian CNR (Dr. C. Forte), and the University of Durham, UK (Prof. R.K. Harris). Since 2001 he is researcher and lecturer in Physical Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry and Industrial Chemistry of the University of Pisa, where he leads the Solid-State NMR group.

Klaus Müller graduated in Chemistry at the University of Freiburg. After completion of the PhD thesis in physical chemistry at the University of Stuttgart, he went for a postdoctoral stay to the Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot/Israel (Dept. of Chemical Physics). He returned to the University of Stuttgart, and - upon completing his habilitation - became professor in Physical Chemistry. His main research activities were applications of solid-state NMR techniques for the characterization of different types of materials. Unexpectedly, he died in April 2011.
