Lanthanide elements were first used some thirty years ago in the optical glass industry, followed shortly by their use as NMR shift reagents in organic chemistry. Since then, the application of lanthanides in studies of organic and biochemical systems by use of their NMR and spectroscopic properties has created a rapidly growing interest in the physics and chemistry of these elements. Their use in industrial catalysts, electronic and optical components, high-temperature superconductors, in medicine as X-ray intensifying materials, relaxation agents for imaging techniques or radioisotopes for pharmaceutical applications, have combined with their utilisation in science as probes of a wide variety of phenomena giving them a prominent place in modern science. In this book, leading experts describe the various facets of the application of lanthanides as probes in life, chemical and earth sciences. The aim is to provide guidance to scientists who may wish to use the unique advantages of lanthanide probes in their own fields. To supplement the chapters on the basic concepts of the application of lanthanides, chapters are provided on the basic chemistry of these elements and on the synthetic and analytical aspects of lanthanides and their compounds. The book thus provides a great deal of useful information which will no doubt assist scientists in using these fascinating and valuable elements in their research.
