Nuclear Magnetic Resonance in Solid Polymers

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance in Solid Polymers

by Vincent J. McBrierty, Kenneth J. Packer




This book is an authoritative and comprehensive account of the principles and practice of modern NMR spectroscopy of solid polymers to determine their structure and dynamics at a molecular level. The book deals with the development of many new NMR capabilities, including high-resolution techniques for solids, multi-dimensional methods, deuterium NMR and others. All of these developments have contributed to a dramatic increase in the power and applicability of NMR for the characterization, at a molecular level, of the dynamics and structural organization of polymeric solids. A chapter on applications emphasizes polymer types and properties, and the authors include an introduction to all the main principles of NMR involved in its application to solid polymers.
