Polymers are all around us. We have grown accustomed to the ubiquity of synthetic materials in our
lives—in packaging, household products, clothing, and medical products, to name a few. When one also
considers the occurrence of natural polymers, such as paper, wood, cotton, and wool, the prevalence of
repetitive macromolecular structures becomes even more apparent. The identification and
characterization of such large molecules has become an important goal for manufacturers of consumer
goods, foods, pharmaceuticals, coatings, adhesives, and other products, as well as for plastics
producers. High-resolution nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is one of the chemist's
most versatile tools for characterizing molecular structure, and its application to polymer solutions has
provided unparalleled qualitative and quantitative information about these materials.
