In this and the next chapter, we illustrate some of the contributions which can be made to molecular physics by the methods of magnetic resonance spectroscopy. These methods occupy a place at the low end of the energy scale (see Fig. 8.1) of the spectroscopic techniques. In the magnetic resonance methods, one makes use of the spins and magnetic moments of nuclei and electrons as probes to study the electronic structure, dynamics and reactivity of molecules. The investigations are usually carried out in the condensed phases, i.e. in solutions or on solid samples.
