UE Tools for investigating polymers



This course is devoted to the multiscale study of the structure of polymer materials using small angle scattering (SAS), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and rheometry. Besides liquid-state NMR, the course explains how solid-state NMR can be applied to the characterization of polymers. Experimental tricks to obtain high-resolution 13C NMR spectra of solids are discussed. Dipolar interactions, chemical shifts anisotropy, magic angle spinning, relaxation times (T1 and T2 and T1g)  and cross-polarization are some of the main notions that are presented in the course. The course is based on examples that were studied with high-resolution solid state 13C  NMR. Regarding rheometry, the relationships between the (nano)structure of polymers and their use properties and implementation.
