The 1H NMR spin-lattice relaxation times (T1) of triethylamine (TEA) molecules included in five kinds of AFI crystals with different concentrations of Si atoms in the wall were measured. The temperature and Larmor frequency dependences of T1 were well explained by introducing a distributed motional correlation time (τ) for the pseudo-C3 TEA reorientation. An obtained linear decrease in the τ distribution width with an increase of the Si concentration, i.e., the number of Brønsted acid sites, was shown to be related to the orientations of TEA molecules in channels.
