Modern NMR Spectroscopy: A Guide for Chemists
The aim of the authors of Modern NMR Spectroscopy is to bridge the communication gap between the chemist and the spectroscopist. The approach is nonmathematical, descriptive, and pictorial. ToExpand
The poly-beta-hydroxybutyrate granule in vivo. A new insight based on NMR spectroscopy of whole cells.
Observations strongly suggest that the enzyme(s) responsible for PHB biosynthesis and consumption operate only on mobile hydrated material and that the solid granules characteristic of dried cells are partially artifactual, supported by a reinterpretation of previously inexplicable biochemical results.

In vivo 13C NMR Investigations of Methanol Oxidation by the Obligate Methanotroph Methylosinus trichosporium OB3b
SUMMARY: In vivo 13C NMR has been used to observe metabolism of exogenously supplied methanol by suspensions of Methylosinus trichosporium OB3b grown under a variety of conditions. Formaldehyde,Expand
Dynamic covalent chemistry.
Some recent examples where dynamic covalent chemistry has been demonstrated are shown to emphasise the basic concepts of this area of science. Expand
Selection and Amplification of Hosts From Dynamic Combinatorial Libraries of Macrocyclic Disulfides
This work has discovered two receptors for two different guests from a single dynamic combinatorial library that amplifies the formation of a tightly binding host at the expense of unfit library members. Expand
Competition between receptors in dynamic combinatorial libraries: amplification of the fittest?
This paper describes the first quantitative experimental evidence proving that, under special circumstances, the preferential amplification of suboptimal synthetic receptors can indeed occur and that reducing the amount of guest in the library can rectify such undesirable behavior. Expand
Formaldehyde metabolism by Escherichia coli. Detection by in vivo 13C NMR spectroscopy of S-(hydroxymethyl)glutathione as a transient intracellular intermediate.
In vivo 13C NMR has been used to detect the transient formation of S-(hydroxymethyl)glutathione (GSCH2OH) from glutathione and [13C]formaldehyde in Escherichia coli. Two-dimensional 1H-13C shiftExpand
