To exhibit nuclear magnetic resonance, an element needs to have at least one isotope with non-zero spin. Out of 81 stable elements, only argon does not have a suitable isotope. If one eliminates resonances over 100 times weaker than hydrogen, 32 elements remain. Of these, 24 have a spin greater than 1/2, and their spectra exhibit quadrupole broadening in varying degrees. Fortunately, the nuclei with broad lines also exhibit very wide chemical shifts. Shifts as large as 1% are observed for cobalt. Good resonances are found especially in the following rows of the periodic system: 1, 3A, 3B, 5A, 5B, 7.
