Abstract : The most important single conclusion to be drawn from this work on inorganic applications of nuclear quadrupole resonance spectroscopy is that the technique is experimentally too unreliable to allow the wise commitment of a research effort to only that technique. It is strongly felt and demonstrated, that NQR can be a particularly powerful tool in the unraveling of certain questions of electronic and molecular structure. Nevertheless there are many instances in which an expected resonance has simply not been observed, thus rendering even the best of ideas usefull 'for lack of evidence.' This is particularly true of the boron compounds related to boron high temperature polymers which were the primary area of relevance of this effort to Air Force technical requirements. (Author)
