Polymer dynamics

back to Magnetic resonance

With NMR the dynamics of polymer is investigated over a wide range of correlation times (nanoseconds to seconds). In addition the chemical shift is used to assign mobility information to specific functional groups.


Proton T1r correlated with the chemical shift of layered double hydroxide (LDH). Contributions from the water between the layers and from the OH protons are identified.
