A number of technical improvements have recently opened up solid-state NMR to the analysis of new classes of substrates with wide ranging implications for molecular and biological sciences, with an immediate impact on a large community of researchers. A wealth of information can be extracted from the analysis of solid-state NMR signals of paramagnetic compounds, as the changes induced by the paramagnetic center depend in a well-defined way on the structure of the molecule. Solid-state NMR is in a position to allow direct, straightforward experimental access to the fine details of the molecular electronic configuration, which is in turn a sensible reporter of the molecular geometry in small catalysts as well as in larger biomolecules.
