CLIP-HSQMBC: Very easy, direct and accurate measurement of nJCH in organic molecules and natural products

CLIP-HSQMBC: Easy measurement of small proton-carbon coupling constants in organic molecules, by Josep Saurí, Teodor Parella and Juan F. Espinosa; Org. Biomol. Chem., 2013, 11, 4473-4478. DOI:10.1039/C3OB40675J

A user-friendly 2D NMR approach denoted as CLIP-HSQMBC is proposed for the very easy, direct and accurate measurement of long-range proton-carbon coupling constants in organic molecules and natural products. The J value can be extracted directly from the analysis of resolved in-phase 1H multiplets that show an additional splitting arising from the proton-carbon coupling. In cases of unresolved peaks, a simple fitting analysis using the internal satellite lines as reference is performed. Addition of a spin-lock period results in a CLIP-HSQMBC-TOCSY experiment that is suitable for the measurement of very small coupling values or to observe correlations from overlapped resonances.
