Molecular Tumbling And Nmr Relaxation

Molecular Tumbling Rate

What is the mechanism of spins dropping down from the ft state to the a state and fanning out around the two cones, and what determines the rates (R1 1 T1 and R2 1 T2)ofNMR relaxation These processes are intimately tied to the motion of molecules as they tumble (reorient) in solution in their rapid Brownian motion, and measurement of the NMR relaxation parameters T1 and T2 can even give us detailed information about molecular dynamics (motion) from the point of view of each spin in the...
