Recent NMR measurements on high-Tc and related material Sr2RuO4 by the Osaka group are reviewed. The following results are presented: (1) Study of YBa2Cu3O7 + Ni has revealed that the attractive force is spin in origin. (2) Analysis of T1, T2 and Knight shift (K) in various high-Tc materials supports the antiferromagnetic spin-fluctuation mediated superconducting model. (3) Temperatures at which a pseudogap starts to open obtained by 1/T1T, dK/dT, photoemission and resistivity agree with each other in the Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+δ system. (4) 17O Knight shift measurements in the related material Sr2RuO4 suggests that a triplet pairing is realized in this compound as in the heavy-fermion superconductor UPt3.
