High-resolution 17 O NMR spectroscopy of wadsleyite ( β -Mg 2 SiO 4 )

Ashbrook, Sharon E; Berry, Andrew; Hibberson, William; Steuernagel, Stefan; Wimperis, Stephen


The sensitivity of high-resolution 17O (I = 5/2) NMR spectroscopy of solids has advanced significantly in recent years. Here, we show that excellent results are now obtainable from milligram quantities of 17O-enriched materials, thereby allowing the technique to be applied to silicate phases synthesized under very high pressures in a multiple-anvil apparatus. We report the first 17O NMR study of β-Mg2SiO4 (9.6 mg of 35% 17O-enriched material, synthesized at p = 16 GPa and T = 1873 K), a dense...[Show more]
