Studies of minute quantities of natural abundance molecules using 2D Heteronuclear correlation spectroscopy under 100 kHz MAS: HMQC approach

  • Summary


Cross-polarization (CP) is widely used for 1H/13C magnetization transfer in solid-state NMR. However, J-based transfer can only be used when 1H T2 relaxation time is much longer than 1/4J. This can be achieved for some molecules at very fast MAS > 100 kHz. Because of the very high magnetization transfer efficiency (100% if relaxation is neglected), 1H/13C HMQC can be quickly recorded even in 13C natural abundance.
