Description - Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry and Medicine by Ray Freeman
Magnetic resonance (MR) makes use of tiny radio signals emitted by the nucleus of the atom. There are two important applications - chemistry, where MR allows us to visualise the architecture of molecules, and medicine, where it provides a clear picture of human anatomy without the need for invasive surgery. This unified treatment of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) in chemistry and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in medicine has been written for a broad non-specialist readership.

Author Biography - Ray Freeman
Ray Freeman read chemistry at Oxford University and completed his doctorate with R. E. Richards on nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. After two years' postdoctoral research at the French Atomic Energy Commission at Saclay, France, he moved to the National Physical Laboratory in Teddington, Middlesex. In 1961 he joined Varian Associates in Palo Alto, California, and worked on the methodology of NMR, the design of commercial NMR spectrometers, and the development of new Fourier transform techniques. In 1973 he was appointed Lecturer at Oxford University and a Tutor and Fellow of Magdalen College, building up a research group on NMR methodology in the Physical Chemistry Laboratory. He was elected Fellow of the Royal Society in 1979. In 1987 he was appointed to the John Humphrey Plummer chair of Magnetic Resonance in the University of Cambridge, and Fellow of Jesus College, Cambridge.
