The object of this research was to study the interactions between ion and solvent and between ion and ion in electrolyte solutions in pure and mixed solvents. The primary concern was the development of new methods to determine the composition of the primary solvation shell of ions in solution. The solvation shell may contain solvent molecules and other ions. The former comes under the category of preferential solvation, while the latter is under ion pairing. A new method was developed for the detection of contact ion association in solutions of perchlorates. This method is based on the NMR relaxation time of the chlorine nucleus in the perchlorate ion.
