FT-NQR (Fourier Transform Nuclear Quadrupole Resonance) spectroscopy is one of the newer analytical tools. Although nuclear quadrupole coupling constants were first observed in atoms by Schmidt and Schuler1 in 1935 and in molecules by Kellog2 and coworkers in 1936, it was the discovery of pure quadrupole coupling transitions in solids by Dehmelt and Kruger3,4 in 1950 and 1951 that initiated the understanding of the NQR phenomenon as presently utilized.
