Solid-state NMR is a mature field with many applications. This review covers the period from early 2005 to March, 2008. A search of the literature showed that there were at least 3100 articles published that contain some emphasis on solid-state NMR. We do not pretend to make a complete or exhaustive review of all of these; rather we have attempted to highlight some reports that seem to indicate the broad sweep of solid-state NMR at this time. In this review, therefore, you should expect the choice of examples to be incomplete, and it is quite possible that another reviewer could have chosen other equally appropriate examples. With a field as wide as this one has become, there are multiple special reviews. One may find published reviews on subjects as diverse as applications of solid-state NMR to material science, polymer chemistry, biomolecular solids, and inorganic solids (1-4). In addition, there are always reviews in such series as Specialist Periodical Reports and Progress in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy that may cover the solid-state techniques.
