Nuclear magnetic resonance line shapes and spin-lattice relaxation timesT 1, of1H and2H nuclei of poly[(R)-3-hydroxybutyric acid] have been measured in the temperature range 100–413 K. The results provide information on the local dynamics of the compound. Activation parameters of the revealed motion are determined.
