Proton nuclear magnetic resonance was used to probe the environment of the intercalant molecule in low dimensional (aeolotropic) solids 3RI-TaS2(NH3)2/3 and 3RII-TaS2(N2H4)4/3, and, specifically to look for phase transitions associated with changes in superlattice geometry. The proton resonance frequency for the intercalated molecules in the temperature interval 200 to 300K indicates that there are different magnetic environments in three temperature domains. (i) There is only one resonance field for molecules in isotropic magnetic environments. (ii) The high- and low-temperature domains (I and III) have molecules in only two different environments, whereas in the middle temperature domain (II) there are at least four different magnetic environments. (iii) The different magnetic environments measured by the ratio of anisotropic to isotropic resonance absorption intensity (rai) indicate that the ratios rai are constants of the sample in domains I and II. (iv) At low temperatures (domain III), rai depends on magnetic field polarisation effects and the temperature treatment of the sample. The authors conclude that the different magnetic environments observed for ammonia and hydrazine appear to be determined by the host, octahedrally coordinate TaS2.
