Field-cycling NMR Relaxometry: Instrumentation, Model Theories and Applications
Chapter 16: Quantum Molecular Tunnelling Studied by Field-cycling NMR
Published:11 Oct 2018
An overview is presented of the applications of fast field-cycling NMR to the study of quantum molecular tunnelling. Both incoherent and coherent tunnelling phenomena are examined. Examples presented include concerted double proton transfer in the hydrogen bonds of the benzoic acid dimer and coherent tunnelling of the quantum rotor CH3.
