CHAPTER 1

INTRODUCTION

1.1 THE UTILITY OF NMR

This chapter gives a brief introduction to solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). However, in order to understand its applications, practitioners need to be aware of a number of facets of solid-state structure, so these are described. The final section introduces the three key techniques of high-resolution NMR of solids and the types of nuclei for which different approaches are needed.

NMR spectroscopy is undoubtedly one of the most powerful techniques for determining molecular-level structure and dynamics. Three main factors contribute to this situation. Firstly, it can be applied to the vast majority of samples. Secondly, nearly all elements have spin-active nuclides that can be accessed—and ...
