NMR transverse relaxation function calculated for constrained polymer chains: application to entanglements and networks
A general method is presented for calculating the NMR transverse relaxation function due to dipolar interactions between a spin pair, rigidly attatched to a constrained polymer chain. A direct
An exact expression for the transverse nuclear magnetic resonance relaxation of a dynamic scale invariant polymer chain governed by a single relaxation time
An exact analytic calculation of the transverse nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) relaxation function, due to dipolar interactions, is presented for a polymer chain considered at the scale invariant
NMR study of the molecular anisotropy induced in a strained rubber network
The splitting seen in the NMR line shape obtained from deformed networks has been cited as evidence of short-range orientational interactions between segments belonging to different chains. It is
