H-1 Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spin-Lattice Relaxation, C-13 Magic-Angle-Spinning Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy, Differential Scanning Calorimetry, and X-Ray Diffraction of Two Polymorphs of 2,6-Di-Tert-Butylnaphthalene
Journal of Chemical Physics
Polymorphism, the presence of structurally distinct solid phases of the same chemical species, affords a unique opportunity to evaluate the structural consequences of intermolecular forces. The study of two polymorphs of 2,6-di-tert-butylnaphthalene by single-crystal x-ray diffraction, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), C-13 magic-angle-spinning (MAS) nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, and H-1 NMR spin-lattice relaxation provides a picture of the differences in structure and dynamics in these materials. The subtle differences in structure, observed with x-ray diffraction and chemical shifts, strikingly affect the dynamics, as reflected in the relaxation measurements. We analyze the dynamics in terms of both discrete sums and continuous distributions of Poisson processes.
