One and two-dimensional NMR to evaluate the performance of consolidants in porous media with a wide range of pore sizes: Applications to cultural heritage

The conservation of historical buildings and outdoor cultural assets is of great value for the humankind. In this context, consolidation treatments represent a fundamental procedure to assure the survival of deteriorated cultural artefacts. For porous materials characterized by a wide distribution of pore sizes, adequate consolidation treatments require a product with a sufficient penetration depth and homogeneous …

Water Absorption Kinetics in Different Wettability Conditions Studied at Pore and Sample Scales in Porous Media by NMR with Portable Single-Sided and Laboratory Imaging Devices

NMR relaxation time distributions of water 1H obtained by a portable single-sided surface device have been compared with MRI internal images obtained with a laboratory imaging apparatus on the same biocalcarenite (Lecce Stone) samples during capillary water uptake. The aim of this work was to check the ability of NMR methods to quantitatively follow the absorption phenomenon under different wettability conditions of the …
