high-resolution solid-state NMR experiments were performed on the intergrowth compound /urea at ambient temperature and helium pressure up to 4500 in a home-made NMR probe. These experiments show that the populations of chain ends gauche conformers can be reversibly modified with pressure. The trans-gauche volume change , free-energy change as well as the contribution of the conformational defects to the chain spring constant were estimated for the first time for an ultraconfined n-alkane.
