Bulk magnetization and H-1 static and magic angle spinning (MAS) nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectra of two magnetically heterogeneous model systems based on laponite (LAP) layered silicate or polystyrene (PS) with low and high proton concentration, respectively, and ferrimagnetic Fe2O3 nano-or micro-particles have been studied. In LAP+ Fe2O3, a major contribution to the NMR signal broadening is due to the dipolar coupling between the magnetic moments of protons and magnetic particles. In PS+ Fe2O3, due to the higher proton concentration in polystyrene and stronger proton-proton dipolar coupling, an additional broadening is observed, i.e. H-1 MAS NMR spectra of magnetically heterogeneous systems are sensitive to both proton-magnetic particles and proton-proton dipolar couplings. An increase of the volume magnetization by similar to 1 emu/cm(3) affects the H-1 NMR signal width in a way that is similar to an increase of the proton concentration by similar to 2 x 10(22)/cm(3). H-1 MAS NMR spectra, along with bulk magnetization measurements, allow the accurate determination of the hydrogen concentration in magnetically heterogeneous systems. (C) 2011 Elsevier B.V.
