Special issue on magnetic resonance in porous media

Published 17 September, 2022


Porous media are ubiquitous and are characterised by a wide range of distinct morphological and topographical properties, often difficult to access by conventional methods. As a unique technology, magnetic resonance has been applied extensively for several decades to non-invasively characterise the structure, interactions and dynamics of fluids in porous media, as well as these media themselves. It does this via spectroscopy, relaxometry or imaging modalities.

This special issue is dedicated to an editorial and a selection of papers presented at the 15th International Bologna Conference Magnetic Resonance in Porous Media (MRPM), which was held in August 2022 at Hangzhou, China. MRPM is a series of conferences that report on the progress of our understanding of the structure, molecular dynamics and fluid transport in porous media. MRPM15 particularly focused on applications of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) on rocks, concretes, cements, biological tissues and other porous media, using new theoretical models, apparatus and experimental sequences. To acknowledge all contributions to the MRPM15 conference, we are now inviting submissions of original, high-quality, innovative research articles (no words limit) and communications (<4500 words) from speakers at MRPM15. This includes invited speakers, normal oral speakers, short oral speakers, and poster speakers. In addition, several review or mini review articles will be organised by the Guest Editor team.

Topics covered:

  • NMR
  • MRI
  • MRS
  • Liquid-state NMR
  • Solid-state NMR
  • Low-field NMR
  • MR biophysics and biomedicine
  • MR instrument/methodology/development
  • NMR theoretical calculation

Important deadlines:

  • Submission deadline: 15 December 2022
  • Planned publication: May 2023

Submission Instructions:

Please read the Guide for Authors before submitting. All articles should be submitted online; please select Magnetic resonance in porous media on submission. Papers that are accepted after undergoing peer review will be published open access with no fee payable by the author.
