Nanoparticles have been used industrially for a variety of applications from drug delivery, coatings to electronic materials. The intricate morphologies built into these nanoparticles and their interactions to surfactants, polymers and other nanoparticles provide unique physical properties that are critical to a variety of industrial applications. In this talk we will discuss some of the selective excitation and detection techniques for solid state (dipolar filters) as well as solution state (diffusion filtered – PFGNMR) to probe these properties. We will also discuss the new mechanistic insight from these NMR techniques into shear thinning viscosity of coatings due to rheology modifier (polymer) interaction to polymeric nanoparticles.
