Applications of NMR Spectroscopy is a book series devoted to publishing the latest advances in the applications of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy in various fields of organic chemistry, biochemistry, health and agriculture.

The ninth volume of the series features reviews that highlight NMR spectroscopic techniques in microbiology, food science, pharmaceutical analysis and cancer diagnosis. The reviews in this volume are:

- NMR spectroscopy for the characterization of photoprotective compounds in cyanobacteria

- Coffee assessment using 1H NMR spectroscopy and multivariate data analysis: a review

- Evaluation of structure-property relationship of coconut shell lignins by NMR spectroscopy: from biorefinery to high-added value products

- Application of NMR spectroscopy in chiral recognition of drugs

- NMR-based metabolomics: general aspects and applications in cancer diagnosis

Audience: Students, analytical chemists, researchers and technicians working on projects requiring NMR spectroscopic analysis.


Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy has emerged as one of the most powerful techniques for the identification of materials and the study of their dynamic properties. As a result, the technique has found tremendous uses in almost all fields of physical, natural, and health sciences.

Volume 9 of the book series entitled Applications of NMR Spectroscopy is comprised of 5 chapters. In chapter 1 of the book, Sinha et al. have discussed the usage of NMR spectroscopy in the identification of photoprotective compounds and its advantages and disadvantages for metabolomic studies. In chapter 2 of the book, Valderrama et al. present an overview of 1H NMR-based metabolomics analysis used in coffee quality control. Avelino and Lomonaco, in the next chapter of the book, discuss the development of the lignin field by reviewing the recent advances provided by NMR spectroscopy. In chapter 4 of the book, Vashistha et al. highlight the current developments in NMR spectroscopy for chiral recognition of pharmaceuticals reported during the past five years. da Silva Júnior et al., in the last chapter of the book, discuss NMR-based metabolomics, its general aspects and applications in cancer diagnosis.

We wish to thank all eminent scientists for their scholarly contributions. The editorial team of Bentham Science Publishers, particularly Ms. Asma Ahmed (Senior Manager Publications), Obaid Sadiq (in-charge books department), and team leader Mr. Mahmood Alam (Editorial Director), deserves our deepest appreciation for compiling an excellent volume in a time-efficient manner. We are confident that, like the previous volumes of this book series, the current treatise will also receive wide appreciation from both the readers and practitioners of NMR spectroscopy.
