Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nuclear magnetic resonance is a versatile tool for the characterization of structure, order an dynamics. The strength of NMR comes from the local nature of the underlying interactions and its high selectivity. Therefore it is equally suited for highly ordered and disordered materials or amorphous materials. Methods are equally applicable to organic and inorganic materials or even organic-inorganic hybrid materials. Numerical methods play an increasing role in the design of new pulse sequences, excitation and decoupling schemes. The combination with the calculation of NMR parameters from quantum chemical calculations permits structure refinement and the so-called NMR crystallography. Recent developments aim for improvement of resolution and sensitivity. The improvements in sensitivity enable new experiments, which had not at all been considered. This special issue will provide the opportunity to present both the latest methods developments and exciting applications.
