We have now reached our 6th quantity in a sequence which has slightly by chance turn into an annual occasion. whereas we nonetheless intend to provide a quantity provided that an appropriate variety of very good chapters within the leading edge of organic magnetic resonance can be found, our philosophy is to offer a pedagogical but severe description and evaluate of chosen subject matters in magazine netic resonance of present curiosity to the neighborhood of biomedical scien tists. This quantity fulfills our objectives good. As regularly, we open the amount with a bankruptcy which at once addresses an in vivo organic challenge: Phil Bolton's presentation of recent suggestions in measuring 31 P NMR in cells. Lenkinski's bankruptcy at the idea and functions of lanthanides in protein experiences covers the main points, highlights, and pitfalls of research of those com plexes in biochemical NMR. Reed and Markham summarize the interpreta tion of EPR spectra of manganese by way of constitution and serve as of proteins and enzymes. Dalton and co-workers describe the functions to organic difficulties of the particularly new potential of time area ESR. eventually, we're happy to provide a departure from mainstream magnetic resonance with the great and stimulating bankruptcy through Gus Maki at the conception, instrumentation, and purposes of optically detected magnetic resonance.
