Ultrafast Multidimensional Laplace NMR Using a Single‐Sided Magnet


Laplace NMR (LNMR) consists of relaxation and diffusion measurements providing detailed information about molecular motion and interaction. Here we demonstrate that ultrafast single‐ and multidimensional LNMR experiments, based on spatial encoding, are viable with low‐field, single‐sided magnets with an inhomogeneous magnetic field. This approach shortens the experiment time by one to two orders of magnitude relative to traditional experiments, and increases the sensitivity per unit time by a factor of three. The reduction of time required to collect multidimensional data opens significant prospects for mobile chemical analysis using NMR. Particularly tantalizing is future use of hyperpolarization to increase sensitivity by orders of magnitude, allowed by single‐scan approach.

Ultraschnelle Experimente – eine oder zwei Größenordnungen schneller als klassische Experimente – messen mehrdimensionale NMR‐Relaxationsparameter. Die ultraschnellen Messungen werden unter Verwendung einpoliger Magnete demonstriert und eröffnen neue Möglichkeiten für die Verfolgung schneller Prozesse mit wenigen Einschränkungen bezüglich der Probengröße. SNR=Signal‐Rausch‐Verhältnis.

    From Sea to Lab

    With its vast numbers of different lifeforms, the sea is a largely unexplored source of natural products that could be starting points for new pharmaceuticals, such as the antitumor drugs trabectedin and lurbinectedin. Because only tiny amounts can be obtained from sea organisms, synthetic ... more

    Finding Chemicals inside a Cell

    How are chemicals distributed in a cell? Chinese scientists have developed a combined mass spectrometry and biological imaging device that enables direct, label-free detection, and high-resolution mapping of chemicals inside a biological cell. As demonstrated in their publication in the jou ... more

    Optimized Binding Cavity

    The impressively high conversion rates of natural enzymes partly result from increasing the catalytic activity of a selected few amino acid side chains through precise positioning within the protein binding cavity. Scientists have now demonstrated that such fine-tuning is also possible for ... more
