The CLIP/CLAP-HSQC: pure absorptive spectra for the measurement of one-bond couplings.
Heteronuclear residual dipolar one-bond couplings of organic molecules at natural abundance are most easily measured using t2 coupled HSQC spectra. However, inevitably mismatched transfer delaysExpand

Relaxation-optimised Hartmann–Hahn transfer using a specifically Tailored MOCCA-XY16 mixing sequence for carbonyl–carbonyl correlation spectroscopy in 13C direct detection NMR experiments
Isotropic mixing sequences are one of the key methods to achieve efficient coherence transfer. Among them, the MOCCA-XY16, which keeps the magnetization longitudinal for a significant amount of time,Expand

Stretched poly(dimethylsiloxane) gels as NMR alignment media for apolar and weakly polar organic solvents: an ideal tool for measuring RDCs at low molecular concentrations.
The measurement of residual dipolar couplings (RDCs), meanwhile a standard method for obtaining structural information in biomolecular NMR, requires partial alignment of the sample. Special demandsExpand
