NMR spectroscopy of minerals and allied materials

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy has played an important role over many years in understanding the structure and reactivity of minerals. The advent of high-resolution NMR techniques, higher magnetic field strengths and recent improvements in theoretical calculations have widened the potential use and application of NMR in mineralogy and solid-state chemistry. Here we review work from the period 2010–2014, focussing primarily on materials formally classified as minerals, but mentioning allied materials that are wholly or partly synthetic, where significant structural or mineralogical insight has been demonstrated.
