Cesium (Cs) has one medium sensitivity NMR active nucleus, 133Cs (fig. 1). It is quadrupolar but has a
very low quadrupole moment and is usually found in symmetric environments and yields narrow signals over a wide
chemical shift range. 133Cesium NMR is mostly used for studying cesium complexes and detecting

Some of the materials mentioned here are very dangerous. Ask a qualified
chemist for advice before handling them. Qualified chemists should check the relevant safety literature
before handling or giving advice about unfamiliar substances. NMR solvents are toxic and most are
flammable. Specifically, cesium salts are toxic in large quantities besides any toxicity arising from the anion.
