Abstract [en]

Beautifully presented, this publication reveals the knowledge in several layers appealing to a wide audience. Parts of the publication are so easy to read and so well illustrated that every reader will be able to get a glimpse of how key inventions from the past feed science and technology today and what they will bring us in the future. Business people and professionals will be able to discover opportunities revealed through innovative scientific research. Students will get a wider perspective on what science is about and finally scientists themselves will discover how seemingly unrelated discoveries may have a profound impact on their own research.

Now it's your turn to discover "The Treasures of Eureka" created to entertain and challenge people from different walks of life, including you.The Treasures of Eureka" series starts from the publication devoted to a recent invention, which in just a short 70 years became one of the key methods of matter research and diagnostic and is widely used from control of food processing to medical treatment, from discovery of new superconductors to building elements of quantum computers.It might not be common knowledge that all these are referring to the discovery of the Electron Paramagnetic Resonance in 1944 by E.K. Zavoisky in Kazan, Tatarstan, Russia. An international Zavoisky Award has been established in 1991 to commemorate the significance of EPR theoretical and practical applications. Since 1991 the Zavoisky Award is awarded in Kazan, Russia, to recognize outstanding applications or developments of electron paramagnetic resonance in any field of science.

This publication is a celebration of the EPR discovery, scientists working in this area, Zavoisky Awardees and technology applications which enhance quality of everyday living for every human on the planet today.

Over 100 of the world's leading EPR experts contributed articles to introduce the marvels of EPR theoretical research and its practical applications to a wider audience. The expertise of authors is matched by high quality design, which makes this publication a milestone in EPR history. This beautifully crafted, fully illustrated hard-cover edition is a true celebration of the significant role of EPR spectroscopy in various aspects of modern life.

Completed with a biography of Eugenii Zavoisky and an original overview of EPR written by the book's editor Prof. Kev Salikhov, it introduces 23 awardees of the Zavoisky Award as individuals and scientists; giving readers a unique insight into the scientific community, which is working on the forefront of modern technology that is shaping the life of humankind. There are also over 37 short articles demonstrating latest research and applications of EPR.

Recognizing a trend of inter-disciplinary research this publication contributes to the introduction of EPR spectroscopy methods and technologies to a world wide scientific community. This publication is bound to become an invaluable resource to all life and material scientists, students and the general public interested in modern science.

Without a doubt this publication is s must for scientific, tertiary and general libraries,. It makes a great gift for natural scientists and science enthusiasts. Business and technology experts will fdiscover how ;atest scientific advances can add value in real life. It is especially valuable for everyone involveddin quality control. Multi-level presentation of information makes it an enjoyable read for many.
