NMR of soft matter systems

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter summarises recent advances and applications of solid-state, solution-state and gel-state NMR techniques to study soft matter systems. Original research articles published between March 2022 and March 2023 are discussed that cover liquid crystals, surfactants, gels, polymer solutions and other soft matter systems. Each section of the review focuses on a different NMR technique, including 1D and 2D solution-state experiments, 2H NMR, nuclear Overhauser effect (NOE) measurements, pulsed-field gradient (diffusion) NMR, relaxation measurements, experiments on quadrupolar counterions and solid-state NMR.
