ILT is particularly useful when the signal is characterized by multi-exponential decay, for example in spin relaxation or in the dephasing of the NMR spin echo signal associated with sopra molecular aggregation under the influence of pulsed magnetic or internal field gradients. As novel approach to observe the real rejuvenating effect of the potential additive, an Inverse Laplace Transform of the NMR spin-echo decay (T2) was applied. The potentialities of a new, non-toxic and eco-friendly biocompatible additive on aged bitumen are explored for the first time as bitumen rejuvenator, by means of advanced rheological and Relaxometry-NMR measurements. Pristine, aged, and doped aged bitumen morphology have been investigated by SEM. The new rejuvenator helps to rearrange the structure of the aged bitumen (aiming at the original one), and this mechanism can be observed by ILTNMR analysis.
