Abstract : The electronic interactions responsible for the unusual properties of several important classes of materials (including the highly anisotropic layered dichalcogenides, and network and cage structure materials and pseudobinary alloys) have been investigated experimentally and theoretically. The unique ability of NMR to probe the local electronic properties of the various constituents of an intermetallic compound or alloy has provided important new information including correlations with observed changes in superconducting transition temperatures. Novel theoretical models (including relativistic effects) are found to yield energy band structures, Fermi surfaces, transport properties, charge and spin densities, generalized magnetic susceptibilities, and optical properties in very good agreement with experimental determinations of these observable phenomena.
