Short summary
Kidney stones (KSs) are a major health problem in industrialized countries. The study of KSs is presently at the heart of a concerted multidisciplinary axis of research involving physicians, physical chemists and spectroscopists. In this contribution, an in-depth structural description of KSs is proposed by implementing a combination of multinuclear and multidimensional solid-state NMR methodology.
