NMR of soft matter systems
This chapter summarises recent advances in solution, HR-MAS and solid-state NMR techniques to study the structure and dynamics of soft matter. NMR enjoys widespread use in the analysis of gels, liquid crystals, polymer solutions and surfactants. Rather than focus on each class of soft matter in turn, this chapter is instead arranged in terms of the NMR techniques themselves in the hope of stimulating the translation of methodologies between the traditional branches of soft matter science. Original research articles published between January 2015 and March 2020 are discussed.
