Solid state NMR spectroscopy is a powerful technique which can be used to investigate structural aspects of, and dynamic processes in polymers. An example of the spectra which can be obtained is shown in the Figure, from which information concerning molecular reorientation can be obtained, one of the processes determining the properties of solid polymers. This review describes the NMR techniques devised recently to examine the structure, order, and dynamics of the molecules which make up the polymers.
