About this book

This book is a comprehensive summary of 50 years of research from theoretical predictions to experimental confirmation of the manifestation of spin exchange in EPR spectroscopy.

The author unfolds the details of comprehensive state of the art of theoretical calculations, which have been proven to become the core of the paradigm shift in spin exchange and set the direction for the future of spin exchange research.

The book refers to important experimental data that confirms the theory. It describes the modern protocol for determining the bi-molecular spin exchange rate from the EPR spectra, which will be especially interesting for experimentalists.

Given its scope, the book will benefit all researchers engaged in theory and experiments in the area of spin exchange and its manifestations in EPR spectroscopy, where many remarkable applications of the spin probe have been developed.

Reviews

“Since our joint monograph on spin exchange (Yu. N. Molin, K. M. Salikhov, K. I. Zamaraev. Spin Exchange. Principles and Applications in Chemistry and Biology. Springer Verlag, Heidelberg Berlin (1980)) was published, this phenomenon has become the basis for a routine approach to the study of the dynamics of particle collisions by EPR spectroscopy. Further studies of K. M. Salikhov in the theory of spin exchange and their experimental confirmation uncovered that to correctly use this approach, a substantial refinement of the spin exchange paradigm is necessary. The proposed monograph solves this problem, and will be gratefully received by researchers working in this and related fields.” (Prof. Yu. N. Molin, Full Member of Russian Academy of Sciences, Lenin prize winner (USSR), N.N. Semenov Gold medal of RAS) 

“Professor Salikhov can always be relied on to bring to life a complex subject and to shine light on it from an original perspective. In this book he takes us to the heart of spin chemistry, and shows how it can be viewed in a new, coherent, and powerful way.” (Peter Atkins, FRSC, Professor Emeritus of physical chemistry and Fellow of Lincoln College, University of Oxford, UK)

About the author

Internationally recognized specialist in chemical physics, Kev M. Salikhov is an active participant of international spin chemistry and magnetic radio spectroscopy communities. For the past 50 years Prof. K.M. Salikhov has made an outstanding contribution to the theoretical foundations of spin chemistry, the theory of bi-molecular spin exchange and the theory of the pulse EPR spectroscopy. K.M. Salikhov’s theoretical predictions were practically all confirmed in experiments and opened the opportunities for development of many experimental techniques and led to innovation of research methodologies throughout the world. Books on these fields of modern science which he wrote in collaboration with other scientists became textbooks for many specialists all over the world.
