Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) has been shown to be an invaluable tool in many fields of science for the non-destructive chemical analysis of samples. Solid-state NMR (SSNMR) with the use of magic angle spinning (MAS) has extended this powerful technique to samples that are not in solution. MAS utilizes fast mechanical rotation about an axis, at an angle of 54° 44’ with the external magnetic field. This technique has currently been used to analyze the chemical content and organization in a variety of biological materials.(1–6)
