Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Studies of Water Structure

  • Jay A. Glasel
Part of the Developments in Applied Spectroscopy book series (DAIS, volume 6)


The use of spin-lattice relaxation time measurements in the study of water structure is discussed. Particular emphasis is laid upon the problem of determining correct correlation functions and upon the information derived from quadrupole-induced relaxation in H2 2O and H2O17. The derivation and importance of quadrupole-coupling constants is discussed. An attempt is made to fit data together from various sources.
