Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Spectroscopy of Polymers

Part of the Polymers book series (POLYMERS, volume 7)


Compared to ESR Spectroscopy, the interaction between the magnetic particles and the external magnetic field is much weaker in NMR. The resonance frequency is therefore much smaller and can be found in the range of radio frequencies (corresponding to wavelengths of 1 to 10m)1, 2). As discussed in Chap. 8, the main reason for this behaviour is the weakness of nuclear magnetic moments. Table 10.1 shows a list of nuclei frequently encountered in polymers together with their natural abundance and relative sensitivity of detection. The nuclear spin moment is given in Table 10.1 in units of h/2π.
