    The Component-Resolved methodology was applied to 1H spin-echoand 27Al-1H cross polarization(CP) MAS NMR data of aluminosilicate glasses. The method was able to resolve two components with different T2 relaxation rates, hydroxyl groups(OH)and molecular water(H 2Omol), from the spin-echo data and to determine partial spectra and the relative abundances of OH and H2Omol. The algorithm resolved two to three components with different 27Al- 1H CP dynamics from the 27Al-1H cross polarization data; the obtained partial NMR spectra for Al-OH are in excellent agreement with those obtained previously from the difference spectra between spectra with various contact times and confirm previous quantitative results and models for the Al-OH,Si-OH and H2Omol speciation(Malfait and Xue, 2010).
