Nuclear magnetic resonance techniques can provide highly accurate information about the local environment of both liquid and solid samples. In the first half of this dissertation research, solid state NMR has provided experimental evidence for turbostratic disorder in layered covalent organic solids. Additionally, comparison with candidate structures allowed a proposed correction to the accepted structure of Covalent Organic Framework-5. The second half of the dissertation work emphasized liquid NMR spectroscopy applied to doped iron oxides (IOs). In particular, the effect of IOs on water proton T2 relaxation times were determined as a measure of contrast agent efficacy. Both types of data lend towards structure elucidation for material efficiency.
