Proton spin-lattice relaxation in acetone-water mixtures Sharma, Surendra Nath
The work reported here is concerned with the measurement of the spin-lattice relaxation of protons in water, acetone, a D₂O - acetone mixture and various aqueous solutions of acetone. The theory to account for the decay rates has been outlined for a general case and has been applied in particular to acetone-water mixtures. The NMR technique has been described briefly. Temperature dependences of T₁ for all solutions have been investigated. It has been found that the relaxation in mixtures are slower than predicted by the theory.
