Solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (SSNMR) is a versatile and purely non-destructive technique that can provide high-resolution molecular structural information on a large variety of materials. The Achilles’ heel of NMR, however, remains its low sensitivity. One of the most promising methods for boosting the SSNMR sensitivity is dynamic nuclear polarisation (DNP), which is nowadays attracting renewed attention owing to recent spectacular technological and theoretical developments. This seminar described recent advances in the field of DNP SSNMR for the characterization of materials in the solid-state by focusing on organic materials, including organic polymers and pharmaceutical compounds.
