A review with 19 refs. Perspectives of CP/MASNMR at low external magnetic field (B0 = 2.35 T) are discussed. Applications are illustrated for the case of heavy spin-1/2 nuclei such as 195Pt and 199Hg: 195Pt and 199Hg CP/MAS spectra of a variety of organometallic compds. are reported. Aspects of shielding anisotropies, of 195Pt-35/37Cl interactions and of 31P-M (M = Cd, Hg, Pt) coupling in transition metal phosphine complexes will be briefly addressed.
