Core Structure of Nanocrystals Platinum nanoparticles Pt NP have a broad array of applica- tions in proton-exchange-membrane fuel cells, heterogeneous catalysts, nanomedicine etc. Achieving a uniform broadband excitation for these ultrawide patterns in the cur- rent setup of an NMR instrument is sometimes challenging.
In a recent report, Rees et al. Compared with conventional variable-offset cumulative frequency-stepping technique or the spin echo height spectros- copy method, the FSFT method allows a more accurate recon- struction of the Pt NMR pattern with improved resolution and also full automation.

The authors deconvoluted the Pt pattern based on a cubo-octahedral model: the signal from the core and four sub-surface layers can be discerned due to their different degrees of Knight shift and local bonding symmetry. The Pt spin—lattice relaxation time T1 may also be used to evaluate the conduction-band structure. Well-dispersed Pt nanoparticles about 1.

They observed that both the proton surface species and defects, and it is in particular helpful for signals of the HDA and the thiophenol correlate with the sophisticated 2D experiments.

Based on the neity of the QD—radical mixture in the matrix of mesoporous observations, the authors proposed a configuration of HDA at SiO2.
Using this method, they were able to get a high DNP the QD surface Figure 20 in which the amine group of the enhancement factor of 80 Figure On QDs after they were exposed to ambient air. Tellurium oxide the contrary, the authors found no tilting of the thiophenol species were observed in the Te spectra of PbTe QDs, while molecules. For the methylenes at the middle of lation of the carboxyl carbon with the surface cadmium was the octadecanethiol C18 chain, the 13C signals change from observed.
This provides direct evidence for the existence of Without DNP, a surface ligands. This suggests the C18 ligands are largely in a Adv. In practice, the low concentration of surface in solution. This indicates that the short C8 chain does not species, the issue of paramagnetism e.

For these nylenes, and peripheral phenyls selectively in crystalline and MTV-MOFs, different apportionments, such as small clusters, amorphous molecular rotors were studied by Jiang et al.

In their 2D spectra, correla- REVIEW tions between the different linkers appear as the polarization propagates along the network of proton spins in the frame- work.
They found that the minor linker is homogeneously dis- tributed within the matrix. These disordered arrangements may also be present on the surface of nanoparticles. The dis- tance between protons on the different ligands can be quanti- fied via the DQ buildup curve of the cross-correlation signal shown in purple.
Based on the relatively short internuclear distance, shorter than 4. Bones are well-engineered nanocomposite materials that possess superb hardness, fracture resistance, and light weight. They are natural marvels in the eyes of chemists learning to build mechanically robust materials. One of the key features of bone is the hierarchal architecture of the col- lagen and hydroxyapatite nanocrystals. In a recent study, Hu et al.
SSNMR was their primary technique to identify the presence of citrate molecules and also to quan- tify its disorder distribution on the hydroxyapatite surface. Using a series of recoupling sequences, the 13C NMR signals of different bones were scrutinized based on their proximity toward hydroxyapatite or their dynamic states. The signature of the citrate molecules was unambiguously identified. In the last part, the authors used the centerband-only detection of exchange CODEX technique to quantify the surface distribution of the citrate molecules, as shown in Figure For molecular rotors and machinery, SSNMR is particu- larly useful for the quantification of their dynamics.
