Research on the dynamic properties and related molecular reorientation processes in polymer chains has attracted special attention in recent years. The solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (SSNMR) is one of the most important complementary techniques in the scientific testing of macromolecules. When polymer molecules make reorientation motions, a fluctuating local magnetic field is generated. Thus, the shape of the resonance line emerges as a function of temperature and reveals the activation energy of the polymer chain.
