    Solid acid materials with tunable structural and acidic properties, acidic features, namely, type (Brønsted vs Lewis acidity), amount, strength, and local environment of acid sites. This account aims to highlight some important applications of solid-state NMR (SSNMR) techniques for exploring the structural and acidic properties of solid acid catalysts as well as their catalytic performances and relevant reaction pathway invoked. In addition, density functional theory (DFT) calculations may be exploited in conjunction with experimental SSNMR studies to verify the structure–activity correlations of the catalytic system at a microscopic scale.
