The applicability of positron annihilation spectroscopy for chemical structural problems is demonstrated by two examples: For the swelling dynamics of an amphiphilic polymer network, very quick structural changes were indicated by positronium lifetime parameters at very low swelling ratios and a hydration mechanism was proposed accordingly. For the series [Fe(x)Zn(1-x)(propyltetrazole)6](BF4)2(x=l, 0.6, 0.4, 0.1, 0), changes in the dynamic structure were revealed by positronium lifetime spectroscopy. For compounds of x > 0, temperature-induced spincrossover was detected.
