Spin dynamics in solids
The work described in this thesis falls into two largely unrelated categories. Part I of the thesis reports unusually fast 13C spin diffusion in adamantane. A calculation of the 13C spin-diffusion rate from first order perturbation theory is presented and compared to the experimental data. There is good agreement between calculation and experiment for relatively small mixing times. Motional averaging of 13C- 1H dipolar coupling is found to be responsible for the unusually efficient 13C spin-diffusion in adamantane. Further enhancement of 13C spin-diffusion should be possible by carrying out ...
