Abstract

Solid-state NMR has become the method of choice for determining details 14 of molecular-level structure in heterogeneous systems. Though spin-1/2 nuclei still form the core of most such studies, quadrupolar nuclei are increasingly being used. This review assesses what is currently possible, from achieving high-resolution spectra for quadrupolar nuclei (a prerequisite for most structure determination work), to forming correlation spectra which give qualitative details of spatial proximity of nuclei and the determination of internuclear distances, between quadrupolar spins and quadrupolar and spin-1/2 nuclei. Examples are given of each method discussed, and the advantages and disadvantages of the various experiments for different possible applications are assessed. (c) 2006 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
