The chemical shift (δ) of a xenon monoatomic molecule is very sensitive to the environment. The major contribution to this shift arises from the van der Waals interactions between the solvent and the xenon molecules. Usually, this solvent effect is interpreted via a reaction field model. This approach leads to a search for a correlation between δ and a function of the square of the refractive index of the solvent [f(n2)]. This paper illustrates the use of a theoretical model developed in our… Expand

Probing polymer colloids by 129Xe NMR.
The line width of free (129)Xe provides the residence time of xenon outside the particles and can be used to determine the rate constant characterizing the kinetics of penetration of Xenon in the particles. Expand
Gas to solution shifts of 129Xe and 13C of methane are linearly related
129Xe gas to solution shifts, which generally do not correlate well with solvent parameters, are shown to be linearly related to the 13C gas to solution shifts of methane in the same solvents. SinceExpand
Characterization of the effects of nonspecific xenon-protein interactions on (129)Xe chemical shifts in aqueous solution: further development of xenon as a biomolecular probe.
The sensitivity of (129)Xe chemical shifts to weak nonspecific xenon-protein interactions has suggested the use of xenon to probe biomolecular structure and interactions, and NMR spectra of Xenon dissolved in amino acid, peptide, and protein solutions under both native and denaturing conditions are acquired.
