Title: Exploring the use of Generalized Indirect Covariance to Reconstruct Pure shift NMR Spectra: Current Pros and Cons.
Authors: André Fredi, Pau Nolis, Carlos Cobas, Gary E. Martin and Teodor Parella.
ABSTRACT: The current pros and cons of a processing protocol to generate pure chemical shift NMR spectra using Generalized Indirect Covariance are presented and discussed. The transformation of any standard 2D homonuclear and heteronuclear spectrum to its pure shift counterpart by using a reference DIAG spectrum is described.

Last 16st July 2015 I defended my PhD Thesis entitled: Development and application of modern pure shift NMR techniques and improved HSQC/HSQMBC experiments.
The present doctoral thesis is framed within the Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy field, more specifically in the design of modern NMR methodologies. The research work carried out is focused on the design and application of new and modern NMR methodologies (i) to perform efficient broadband 1H homodecoupling in 1D/2D NMR experiments and (ii) to accurately determine homo- and heteronuclear coupling constants in isotropic and anisotropic conditions through improved HSQC and HSQMBC-type experiments. The thesis is presented as a compendium ten (10) publications that have been published in several peer-reviewed international scientific journals as original research papers.

In the following links one can find Data Set Examples of each Publication presented in the Thesis Work, as well as the corresponding Pulse Program Code for Bruker. All 2D spectra have been previously phased and 2ii, 2ir, and 2ri files removed, otherwise data sets would be too big.

A general NMR approach to provide pure in-phase (PIP) multiplets in heteronuclear correlation experiments is described. The implementation of a z-filter efficiently suppresses any unwanted anti-phase contributions that usually distort the multiplet pattern of cross-peaks and can make their analysis difficult.

Last 21st May 2014 I defended my PhD Thesis entitled: Modern NMR Methodologies for the Measurement of Homo- and Heteronuclear Coupling Constants in Small Molecules
The dissertation is focused on the development of modern NMR methodologies for the measurement of homo- and heteronuclear coupling constants in small molecules, and is presented as a compendium of eight (8) publications that have been published in several peer-reviewed journals as original research papers.

A NMR method to enhance the sensitivity and resolution in band-selective long-range heteronuclear correlation spectra is proposed. The excellent in-phase nature of the selHSQMBC experiment allows that homonuclear and/or heteronuclear decoupling can be achieved in the detected dimension of a 2D multiple-bond correlation map, obtaining simplified cross-peaks without their characteristic fine J multiplet structure. The experimental result is a resolution improvement while the highest sensitivity is also achieved. Specifically, it is shown that the 1H-homodecoupled band-selective (HOBS) HSQMBC experiment represents a new way to measure heteronuclear coupling constants from the simplified in-phase doublets generated along the detected dimension.
Pulse Programs Code for Bruker:
- 2D HOmodecoupled Band-Selective-HSQMBC (HOBS-HSQMBC)
- 2D Broadband hEterodecoupled and HOmodecoupled Band-Selective-HSQMBC (BEHOBS-HSQMBC)
