Abstract:

Hydrated gallium sulfate has been studied over a wide temperature range using both steady-state and transient proton resonance techniques. Second moment and spin-lattice relaxation time data support the suggestion that oxonium H3O ions exist in this material and that the structural formula should be written H3OGa3OH6SO42. The oxonium ions undergo thermally activated reorientations and translational diffusion. These motions induce dipolar proton spin-lattice relaxations which are most effective at 135 and 300K, respectively. Author
