NMR Studies of Molecular Solids, Polymers and Glasses

  • W. Müller-Warmuth
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 22)


The present lecture is based upon the introductory papers: “NMR parameters for studying structure and motion”, and “NMR studies of molecular motion in solids”. Measurement of dipolar line shapes and moments, of quadrupole interactions, and of relaxation times (Zeeman relaxation, dipolar relaxation, spin-lattice relaxation in the rotating frame of reference) will be examined in order to determine the types of structural and dynamic information which may be obtained for molecular solids, polymers and glasses. The emphasis here will be on materials rather than on phenomena and theoretical background. However, it is not the purpose of this lecture to present a review of all previous NMR work in this field; rather, typical applications yielding characteristic information will be discussed. Application of high resolution methods to molecular solids where interest is primarily focused on the chemical shift are excluded in this lecture since they will be treated elsewhere.
