Abstract

The ability to characterise metal oxides by 17O NMR is an attractive goal due to the wide industrial interest in these materials in high technology applications. The main barriers to progress are the low natural isotopic abundance (0.038%) and the nuclear quadrupole interaction. The latter acts to broaden powder spectra in non-cubic systems and thus to obscure the crystallographically identifying isotropic chemical shifts.
