NMR crystallography driven structure determination: nanoporous materials
A summary of the recent results obtained in the field of NMR crystallography of nanoporous materials is proposed, and new original methods and strategies to perform NMR crystallography driven structure determination are presented. Although the work to reach structure resolution of a powder is much more difficult than for a single crystal, the use of NMR data associated with diffraction methods and modelling has provided significant successes in this domain. However, a general method to combine the different measurements, and overcome their respective limitations, has been only recently proposed. The structure search can therefore be organized to converge to possible structure models. This is of utmost importance for the structure determination of complex nanoporous crystals.
