We describe the use of solid-state NMR spectroscopy for studies of order and disorder in solids. A short overview of different aspects of order and disorder in solid materials is given, addressing the differences between static and dynamic disorders. A brief introduction to the basics of broad-line, high-resolution, and dynamic solid-state NMR spectroscopy follows. Subsequently, we present representative applications of solid-state NMR spectroscopy on various types of disordered materials. The experiments primarily involve dipolar recoupling techniques for structural characterization, as well as dynamic broad-line and high-resolution methods for examination of motional features. Selected examples demonstrate the potential of advanced solid-state NMR methods for characterization of both static and dynamic disorders in the solid state.
