Although saturation transfer difference (STD) NMR spectroscopy was developed with the aim of detecting the binding of small molecules to target receptor proteins, it has increasingly been applied to a wider range of materials, including synthetic polymers, colloidal dispersions and inorganic nanoparticles. Here the STD NMR technique is briefly described, and some applications of STD NMR in organic/inorganic polymer materials are introduced. STD NMR has been used for several motivations: to detect the binding sites of small molecules bound specifically to polymers, to search for different types of substances that have a high affinity for polymer beads, and to determine the binding mode and the dissociation constant of small molecules bound to colloidal dispersions or nanoparticles in aqueous solution.
