Literature question
« on: January 30, 2017, 01:10:52 AM »

Can somebody recommend a book with a good explanation of ESR spectroscopy, theoretical background, spectral assignation and practical details? Thanks!

There are a number of Books, but most of them are pretty hard stuff. Can I ask what your background is and what you need it for?

-Do you know the theoretical Background of NMR (Bloch Equations, Density Operator Formalism, basic pulse sequences)?
-Do you only want to know cw-EPR or are you also interested in pulsed and in double resonance methods (ENDOR,ELDOR-detected NMR, DEER/PELDOR)?
-What kind of systems would you like to investigate (Organic radicals, transition metal complexes, Metalloenzymes...)

I might have a lecture script for you which is better suited for an introduction than most books.

spectral assignation

Note that this is not as straight-forward as in NMR, especially in the solid state. It often needs simulations... (http://www.easyspin.org/)

My background is in food chemistry. During my MSc studies I had a fair training in organic spectroscopy (to be precise: NMR, IR, UV-Vis, MS).

-When it comes to NMR I used it quite a bit during MSc thesis research, but my knowledge is mostly practical (1D and 2D assignations)
-As far as I know, I'll have to deal with cw-EPR and possibly ENDOR
- I'll need it only for organic radicals

I'd appreciate a chance to read your lecture script.

Our lecture script is here: http://www.epr.ethz.ch/education.html (the last one, it is 70 MB, so it takes a while to load).

I doubt that this is too much of a help for you, since the focus is really from the theory and methods part, but you'll have to judge this.

Since your background is food chemistry, I am pretty sure that there are several books or chapters which treat ESR from your perspective. A quick google search for example gave this: https://www.elsevier.com/books/electron-spin-resonance-in-food-science/shukla/978-0-12-805428-4

And of course: You can always ask your questions here.

This is also not to heavy: http://link.springer.com/book/10.1007%2F978-1-4020-5344-3

Maybe you even have access via your institution.

Wertz and Bolton "Electron Spin Resonance" is pretty old, but my recollection of it is that it is quite readable.

Drago, Physical Methods for Chemists, has great chapters on ESR and a number of other spectroscopic and physical characterization techniques. Unfortunately it is out of print and very expensive to purchase but if you can find a copy somewhere it will make an excellent addition to your library.

https://www.amazon.com/Physical-Methods-Chemists-Russell-Drago/dp/0030751764/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1487170413&sr=8-1&keywords=physical+methods+for+chemists

I second Corribus on Drago's book.  I had a copy but it disappeared, unfortunately.

*coughing*

looks fine at one glance, but of course, modern EPR methods and applications are not discussed at all.

My recollection is that the section on manganese EPR was good, and that was an area of interest.
