In this work, we applied the 1D B-11 nutation NMR method for the analysis of the local structural environments in powdered borosilicates (SiO2-B2O3). Spin dynamics during a rf irradiation for spin I=3/2 was analytically calculated with a density matrix formalism. Spectral simulation programs were written in MATLAB on a PC. Two borosilicates prepared by the sol-gel process at different stabilization temperature were used for the 1D B-11 nutation NMR experiment. The B-11 NMR parameters, quadrupole coupling constants (e(2)qQ/h) and asymmetry parameters (eta), for each borosilicate were extracted from the nonlinear least-squares fitting. The effects of heat treatments on the local structures of boron sites in borosilicates were discussed.
