“Pure In-Phase Heteronuclear Correlation NMR Experiments ” by Laura Castañar, Josep Sauri, Robert Thomas Williamson, Albert Virgili and Teodor Parella. Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2014, 53, 8379-8382. DOI: 10.1002/anie.201404136
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.

“Implementing homo- and heterodecoupling in region-selective HSQMBC experiments” by Laura Castañar, Josep Sauri, Pau Nolis, Albert Virgili and Teodor Parella. Journal of Magnetic Resonance 238 (2014) 63-69.
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.

Two complementary 1D NMR approaches for the fast and easy determination of the magnitude and the sign of heteronuclear J(XH) coupling constants are proposed:The Up&Down technique relies on the direct analysis of anti-phase multiplets whereas the Left&Right technique is based on the relative displacement between separate IPAP components.

The effects of phase signal modulation due to homonuclear proton–proton coupling constants in HSQMBC-IPAP and HMBC-IPAP experiments are experimentally evaluated. An assessment of the reliability ofnJCH measurement from distorted cross-peaks obtained in IPAP versions of HMBC and HSQMBC experiments is presented.
