Pulsed field gradient NMR diffusion experiments can, in principle, lead to the "diffusive diffraction" phenomenon. In practice, its observation by gradients of the static magnetic field is difficult in real systems because they involve internal gradients due to the static magnetic field (necessary for polarizing nuclear spins). This latter drawback can be(More)
Pulsed Field Gradient NMR (PFG-NMR) method used to measure the self-diffusion coefficient of liquids can also be exploited to probe the local geometry of porous media. In most practical cases, the measured diffusion attenuation is generally Gaussian and can be interpreted in terms of an apparent diffusion coefficient. Using well chosen experimental(More)
NMR Pulsed field gradient measurements of the restrained diffusion of confined fluids constitute an efficient method to probe the local geometry in porous media. In most practical cases, the diffusion decay, when limited to its principal part, can be considered as Gaussian leading to an apparent diffusion coefficient. The evolution of the latter as a(More)
Because of its reactivity, malonic acid diamide (1) was initially identified as an alternative precursor for the development of a new class of high-density insensitive energetic materials possessing low sensitivity to thermal decomposition and detonation by impact. Nitration of 1 was studied under different conditions and led to three different tautomeric(More)
Tetrazine-based organic species are interesting intermediates for organic synthesis and represent a source of new materials bearing specific properties with potential applications in biology and material science. 1H, 13C, 15N NMR measurements carried out in solution and in the solid-state have been used to characterize a series of 3,6-disubstituted(More)
A simple modification of the standard cross-polarization method designed for quenching the proton T1 rho dependence when studying polarization transfer is presented. It is demonstrated that by using this simple procedure, new and subtle details of cross-polarization dynamics, previously hidden by the T1 rho(1H) effect, can be observed in dipolar-coupled(More)
The rational design of new sensitive materials for chemical sensors relies on the knowledge of molecular interactions between the chemical species in question with compounds that may potentially be present in the gas phase. In this context, the intermolecular interactions between a family of functionalized polysiloxanes and a series of organic compounds(More)
It is shown that the orientation dependence of spinning sidebands of slowly rotating solids can be exploited to determine with good precision the heteronuclear bond distances and mutual orientation of dipolar and shielding tensors from a single dipolar modulated chemical shift anisotropy spectrum. The method is based on the dynamics of polarization transfer(More)
Mesomeric heteropentalene betaines are conjugated fused polyheterocyclic structures that represent interesting intermediates for organic synthesis. Five such structures, containing at least four nitrogen atoms and various substituents, have been characterized by (1)H, (13)C and (15)N NMR. We report, apparently for the first time, nitrogen NMR data and(More)
