The dynamic disorder in solid acenaphthylene has been studied by deuterium NMR spectroscopy of deuteriated powder samples. The spectra exhibit lineshape and relaxation discontinuities in the transitions from Phase III, through Phase II, to Phase I (the latter being stable above 127 K). A detailed analysis of the lineshape and T1 relaxation in Phase I is presented. The results show the occurrence of two distinct equally populated, dynamic sites. The molecules in both sites undergo planar… CONTINUE READING
