Detection of multiple boron sites in glasses by satellite transition nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy

Filed under: Glasses 1995 — admin @ 1:54 am


The magic-angle spinning sidebands of the satellite transition (ST, m equals plus or minus 3/2 arrow left right plus or minus one half ) for **1**1B nuclear magnetic resonance (**1**1B ST spectroscopy) have been used to detect multiple boron sites in Na//2O-B//2O//3-SiO//2 glasses. The experimental details and data analysis are described, how multiple BO//4 and BO//3 units can be distinguished using standard magic-angle spinning. For a 16Na//2O-30B//2O//3-53.9SiO//2 glass (0.1 MnO) two BO//4 units with chemical shifts of minus 2.5 and 0 ppm were found which differ considerably in their quadrupole interaction. Besides this we found three different BO//3 units with approximate chemical shifts of 17, 15, and 19 ppm. The results are compared with earlier measurements. (Author abstract) 35 Refs.
