P.E.HSQMBC: Simultaneous measurement of proton–proton and proton–carbon coupling constants

“P.E.HSQMBC: Simultaneous measurement of proton–proton and proton–carbon coupling constants” by Josep Saurí, Pau Nolis, Laura Castañar, Albert Virgili and Teodor Parella. Journal of Magnetic Resonance 224 (2012) 101–106. DOI: 10.1016/j.jmr.2012.09.007

A long-range optimized P.E.HSQC experiment, named P.E.HSQMBC, is proposed for the simultaneous measurement of a complete set of homonuclear and heteronuclear coupling constants from a single 2D cross-peak.

HSQMBC-COSY: Measurement of the sign and the magnitude of long-range proton-carbon coupling constants

“Efficient measurement of the sign and the magnitude of long-range proton-carbon coupling constants from a spin-state-selective HSQMBC-COSY experiment”, by Josep Saurí and Teodor Parella; Magn. Reson. Chem. 2012, 50, 717-721. DOI:10.1002/mrc.3867

A spin-state-selective HSQMBC-COSY experiment is proposed to measure the sign and  the magnitude of long-range proton-carbon coupling constants (nJ(CH); n>1) either for protonated and for non-protonated carbons in small molecules.

Measurement of the magnitude and the sign of small nJCH on protonated and non-protonated carbons

“A definitive NMR solution for the simple and accurate measurement of the magnitude and the sign of small heteronuclear coupling constants on protonated and non-protonated carbons”, by Josep Saurí, Juan Félix Espinosa and Teodor ParellaAngew. Chem. Int. Ed. (2012) DOI: 10.1002/anie.201108959

The measurement of long-range proton carbon coupling constants in natural-abundance molecules has always been a tranding topic for the NMR community. Despite the extensive number of NMR techniques that have been developed, there are still remain two unsolved problems pertaining to non-protonated carbons, namely, a) and accurate measurement of very small coupling constants (less than 2-3 Hz) , and b) the absence of a general and robust approach to determine the sign of the coupling.
