Xenon-129 NMR technique has been developed since 1980 as a new method for the characterization of microporous materials such as zeolites, activated carbons and alumina by using chemical shift and linewidth variations in $^{129}Xe$ NMR of adsorbed xenon gas. This NMR technique has been known to be very effective to probe the locational and the chemical changes of the supported metallic species as well as the physicochemical change of the support material. Recently, this method has been successfully applied for the characterization of amorphous materials such as activated carbons, silica and alumina. Basic principles, experimental techniques and recent applications of the $^{129}Xe$ NMR method for the study of heterogeneous catalysts are introduced in this paper.
