We report a novel symmetry-based method, using inversion elements bracketed by spin locks, for exciting double-quantum (DQ) coherences between spin-1/2 nuclei, such as protons. Compared to previous DQ-recoupling techniques, this new pulse sequence requires moderate rf field, even at ultra-fast MAS speeds. Furthermore, it is easy to implement and it displays higher robustness to both chemical shift anisotropy and to spreads in resonance frequencies. These advances greatly facilitate the… CONTINUE READING
