NMR Parameters for Studying Structure and Motion

In a rigid lattice, information is obtained from the NMR frequency, from the intensity of a line and especially from the shape of the spectrum or the linewidth. Relaxation times become of importance if motions are included in the study. The resonance frequency may be influenced by the phenomena to be discussed in this lecture; however it depends principally upon the type of nulcei employed. The intensity is proportional to the concentration of the respective nuclear spins. Various factors contribute to the shape of the NMR spectrum and these will be the main topic of the present lecture.
