Solid state NMR has the ability to obtain detailed structural information at the molecular level in materials. This has led to the development of a large number of high resolution techniques, some of which utilize multiple pulse methods. The behaviour of these multiple pulse techniques has, to date, been explained using either relaxation or spin dynamics. Ultimately, an explanation based on a combination of both dynamics is required in order to properly understand the underlying mechanism of these techniques. This work presents an explanation of the experimental behaviour observed for three multiple pulse domain selection techniques: the DIVAM, Direct DIVAM, and Refocused DIVAM sequences. This is based on a combination of spin and relaxation dynamics and is accomplished using both analytical expressions and simulations obtained using a general simulation program for solid-state NMR spectroscopy (SIMPSON).
