Modern solid-state NMR spectroscopy is often regarded as one of the most important research tools in many areas of advanced materials science. It is now virtually indispensable when studying amorphous and disordered solids, solid-state dynamics, or catalytic chemical reactions for example. Broader availability of high and ultrahigh-field NMR spectrometers combined with ongoing fast-pace developments in signal-enhancement techniques and in contemporary DFT computational tools opens up new exciting opportunities when applying solid-state NMR to even the most “difficult” quadrupolar nuclei, the feat almost unimaginable just a few years ago. While it would be impossible in this short chapter to mention every single new paper which has been published in this area in the last several years, we have selected the most representative examples to illustrate the current capabilities of solid-state NMR spectroscopy as applied to oxide-based materials and related systems. This short review aims at being a guidance tool to further reading and research.
