Two-Dimensional NMR of Diffusion Systems
Yi-Qiao Song, Lukasz Zielinski, and Seungoh Ryu
We consider diffusion in porous media with well-connected pore space for which isolated-pore models are insufficient. Explicit pore-to-pore exchange parameters were introduced in recent 2D NMR experiments. However, such parameters capture only certain aspects of the interpore spin dynamic which, for single-fluid saturated media, are wholly determined by diffusion. Here, we develop a theoretical approach suitable for a quantitative description of such 2D NMR taking a full account of the underlying diffusion modes. We use simple models of one pore and two coupled pores to demonstrate the rich behavior of 2D NMR.
