Nuclear quadrupole resonance (NQR) is a solid-state radio frequency (RF) technique, able to detect and identify compounds containing quadrupolar nuclei, including many high explosives, narcotics and pharmaceutical compounds. In addition to being able to identify entirely different compounds, the technique is also able to distinguish between different polymorphic forms of the same compound. Analysing the signals from mixtures, either of different compounds or of polymorphs, is important in… CONTINUE READING
