The normal paraffins can undergo several transitions before melting and may thus serve as interesting model compounds for polyethylene, which also undergoes solid-solid transitions, the strongest and best-known being the so- called alpha transition. Our examination of n-Hexatriacontane C36 has been greatly furthered by the use of the solid-state 1H NMR technique known as CRAMPS Combined Rotation And Multiple Pulse Spectroscopy. This technique, combined with DSC and 13C CPMAS NMR, has allowed us to make tentative assignments for the molecular motions occurring at different temperatures below the melting point.
