Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy remains an important tool in the characterization of materials at atomic and molecular levels. Developing and applying both solution and solid-state NMR techniques in material science is a rich field of study with extremely varied examples. By employing combinations of heteronuclear, multi-dimensional, multi-quantum, and dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP); relaxation filters; shaped pulses; magic angle spinning; and pulse field gradient (PFG) NMR diffusometry techniques, investigators can gain novel and valuable insights into materials. An almost endless range of material properties can be probed, including production and degradation chemistries, local- and medium-range structure, structural dynamics, binding events, surface interactions, phase transitions, morphology, kinetics, and hydrogen bond strengths, along with ion/molecular diffusion.
This Special Issue will focus on the use of NMR for the characterization of real-life materials, including biomaterials, biopolymers, biofuels, biomembranes, self-assembled materials, super-molecular and stimuli-responsive polymers, polymer membranes, composites, MOFS, inorganic materials, liquid crystalline polymers, ceramics, glasses, catalyst, surface-modified nanoparticles, and electrolytes. This Special Issue invites the submission of original research articles and reviews that explore the use of NMR spectroscopy in material characterization.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
