We demonstrate that two-dimensional solid-state NMR chemical-shift correlation spectra can be recorded under low-power conditions. Except for the cross-polarization period, no rf-field amplitudes above 40 kHz are used. Such experiments require the use of fast (>50 kHz) magic-angle spinning (MAS). A comparison with the high-power version of the experiment(More)
The 23Na magic-angle spinning (MAS), double rotation (DOR) and multiple-quantum magic-angle spinning (MQMAS) NMR spectra of anhydrous sodium pyrophosphate, Na4P2O7, measured at five different Larmor frequencies (nuL) ranging from 105.8 MHz (corresponding to 400 MHz 1H frequency) to 211.6 MHz (800 MHz) are analysed and the complete set of NMR parameters(More)
We present an approach that accelerates protein solid-state NMR 5-20-fold using paramagnetic doping to condense data-collection time (to approximately 0.2 s per scan), overcoming a long-standing limitation on slow recycling owing to intrinsic (1)H T(1) longitudinal spin relaxation. Using low-power schemes under magic-angle spinning at 40 kHz, we obtained(More)
We discuss a simple approach to enhance sensitivity for (13)C high-resolution solid-state NMR for proteins in microcrystals by reducing (1)H T(1) relaxation times with paramagnetic relaxation reagents. It was shown that (1)H T(1) values can be reduced from 0.4-0.8s to 60-70 ms for ubiquitin and lysozyme in D(2)O in the presence of 10 mM Cu(II)Na(2)EDTA(More)
Recent developments in sample rotation technology have had a profound impact on magic-angle-spinning NMR. First, rotation frequencies approaching, and even exceeding, strong homonuclear spin interactions have made high-resolution solid-state (1)H spectroscopy much more accessible. Second, the new concept of fast rotation sweep spectroscopy has emerged.(More)
It is shown that the anisotropic NMR parameters for half-integer quadrupolar nuclei can be determined using double rotation (DOR) NMR at a single magnetic field with comparable accuracy to multi-field static and MAS experiments. The (17)O nuclei in isotopically enriched l-alanine and OPPh(3) are used as illustrations. The anisotropic NMR parameters are(More)
We present an overview of solid-state NMR studies of endohedral H(2)-fullerene complexes, including (1)H and (13)C NMR spectra, (1)H and (13)C spin relaxation studies, and the results of (1)H dipole-dipole recoupling experiments. The available data involves three different endohedral H(2)-fullerene complexes, studied over a wide range of temperatures and(More)
We present a family of homonuclear (13)C-(13)C magic angle spinning spin diffusion experiments, based on R2(n)(v) (n = 1 and 2, v = 1 and 2) symmetry sequences. These experiments are well suited for (13)C-(13)C correlation spectroscopy in biological and organic systems and are especially advantageous at very fast MAS conditions, where conventional PDSD and(More)
The application of two or more different time-dependent coherent perturbations with, in general, incommensurable frequencies occurs quite commonly in NMR experiments. Here we develop a unified description of the entire class of experiments using bimodal Floquet theory and van Vleck-Primas perturbation theory. This treatment leads to a time-independent(More)
A theory of dynamic angle spinning (DAS) and double rotation (DOR) NMR is described using average Hamiltonian and irreducible tensor methods. Sideband intensities in DAS and DOR spectra are analyzed by both the moment and Bessel function methods, and general formulae are derived. Results show that the DAS moments depend on the relative rotor phase between(More)
