The aim of this project is to use, develop, and adapt Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) techniques for studying structural and dynamic features of polymer-based systems. Concerning the method development we plan: i) to adapt some pulse sequences for efficiently studying molecular dynamics on solid luminescent polymers; ii) to develop an experimental apparatus for simultaneously executing low filed NMR and optical spectroscopy, in particular Raman spectroscopy. The later experiment is particularly important in the study of luminescent polymers because it may provide a direct correlation between dynamics (measured by NMR) and chain conformation (measure by Raman spectroscopy). Besides the method development, this doctorate project also comprises specific NMR studies on some systems of interest, which includes the study of phase transitions in luminescent polymers and the elucidation of structural and dynamic features in soft polymers as well as in intercalation nanocomposites, with the aim o understand features o interest for the rheology of these materials.
