Multiple pulse NMR imaging of polymers and chemistry
Multiple pulse line narrowing techniques can be used to improve resolution and sensitivity in solid state NMR imaging. For example, pulse sequences which remove homonuclear dipolar broadening have been used to image proton-containing materials. Further enhancements in resolution and sensitivity are obtained by removing inhomogeneous interactions such as chemical shift, susceptibility, and heteronuclear dipolar broadening. Pulse sequences have been designed which provide efficient line narrowing over large spectral widths by taking into account the experimenter's control over the amplitude and time dependence of the gradient-induced resonance offset. These methods have been applied to centimeter sized samples to obtain images of polymers, composite materials, and gas-solid chemical reactions. T1 and T2 contrast allows differentiation between materials. © 1992.
