Measurements of ¹H chemical shift anisotropy

  • Summary


Anisotropy of spin interactions gives fruitful information on molecular structure as  well as dynamics. Although 1H is ubiquitous and abundant nuclei, there is only a few  reports on 1H chemical shift anisotropy (CSA). This is because of small 1H CSA and  strong 1H-1H dipolar interactions. Fortunately, thank to the hardware improvement,  the combination of high magnetic field and fast MAS solve this problem; the higher  B0 field amplify the 1H CSA and fast MAS kill 1H-1H dipolar interactions. Here we  introduce a new symmetry based sequence which recouples 1H CSA in a g-encoded  manner keeping 1H-1H dipolar interactions decoupled. The use of 270⁰-90⁰ cmposite  pulse improves the robustness toward rf-field inhomogeneities.
