Abstract It has been demonstrated by an example of apple parenchymal cells that NMR spectroscopy can be used to analyze the relaxation and diffusion of water molecules in plant cells. With small diffusion times, three relaxation components have been distinguished, which correspond to water in a vacuole, in the cytoplasm, and in intercellular liquid. The coefficient of self-diffusion corresponding to these components have been determined. With large diffusion times, it is possible to distinguish two components. For the slowly relaxing component (which corresponds to water in a vacuole), the regime of restricted diffusion was observed. For a quickly relaxing component, an anomalous increase in the coefficient of self-diffusion with the time of diffusion took place.
