Two-dimensional nuclear magnetic resonance (2D NMR) is one of the most important tools to elucidate the structure of molecules and to study molecular dynamics. Recently, a new approach of 2D NMR experiments has been developed based on spatial encoding (selective excitation of spins placed at different positions in the sample) and on the subsequent acquisition in the presence of spatial gradients. This new methodology is known as Ultrafast 2D NMR (UF-NMR) and allows the acquisition of 2D NMR experiments on a sub-second timescale and in a single-scan. In my talk I will explain several conceptual and experimental aspects of this novel 2D NMR methodology as well as some of its applications.
