Transition metal NMR chemical shifts are readily measured by modern 1D and 2D pulse techniques and serve as a probe into electronic and steric effects of ligands and substituents in metal complexes. Quantitative correlations of metal chemical shifts with reaction rates and catalytic activities{,} both experimental and as a result of quantum chemical calculations{,} give new mechanistic insights and permit reactivity predictions and a screening of homogeneous catalysts. A variety of such examples involving the spin-1/2 nuclei Fe{,} Rh{,} and Os as well as the quadrupolar nuclei V{,} Cr{,} Mn{,} Co{,} and Zr are discussed.
