19F solid state NMR by using 2mmMAS probe_NM180013E

JEOL 2mm MAS probe enables MA Spinning at nearly twice MAS speed of the conventional 3.2mm and 4mm MAS probe with 20 times the sample volume of the 1mm MAS probe. An attractive application of the 2mm MAS probe is 19F NMR. Strong 19F homonuclear dipolar coupling and wide chemical shift range cause a series of spinning side band (SSB) which make it difficult to analyze 19F spectra obtained by using the conventional 3.2mm and 4mm probes. The 2mm probe can achieve 40kHz MAS speeds, the resulting 19F spectra will had small well managed SSB’s. Here, we introduce 19F solid state NMR spectra of Nafion known as a solid polymer electrolyte for fuel cells. Fig.1 shows 19F MAS spectra of Nafion at various MAS speeds. 40kHz MAS gives a clear 19F spectrum without overlapping of SSBs whereas overlap occur between center bands and their SSBs at MAS speeds less than 40kHz. Moreover, the much greater sensitivity of the 2mm probe than the 1mm probe enables direct observation of low sensitive nuclei such as 13C. Thus, 13C{19F} CPMAS( Fig.2) and 13C-19F 2D-HETCOR (Fig.3) can easily be obtained.

2mm HXMAS probe Multi-use probe capable of high speed MAS and high sensitivity measurements_NM210001E

JEOL 2mm HXMAS probe is a multi-use probe capable of high speed magic angle spinning (MAS) up to 40kHz and high sensitivity measurements. It is not only available for general use in standard 13C measurements of organic materials, but also for highly sensitive 1H indirect detection utilizing high resolution 1H NMR. Since it is also suitable for 19F measurements where spinning side bands are likely to appear (JEOL application note: NM180013 ) and MQMAS measurements of quadrupole nucleus, the 2mm probe is strongly recommended probe that can handle a variety of measurements as a single probe.

The bus line for control of attachments has been upgraded to even higher speed and enables highly accurate and rapid control.

Efficient symmetry-based γ-encoded DQ recoupling sequences for suppression of t1-noise in solid-state NMR spectroscopy at fast MAS

Solid-state NMR spectroscopy has played a significant role in elucidating the structure and dynamics of materials and biological solids at a molecular level for decades. In particular, the 1H double-quantum/single-quantum (DQ/SQ) chemical shift correlation experiment is widely used for probing the proximity of protons, rendering it a powerful tool for elucidating the hydrogen-bonding interactions and molecular packing of various complex molecular systems. Two factors, namely, the DQ filtering efficiency and t1-noise, dictate the quality of the 2D 1H DQ/SQ spectra. Experimentally different recoupling sequences show varied DQ filtering efficiencies and t1-noise. Herein, after a systematic search of symmetry-based DQ recoupling sequences, we report that the symmetry-based γ-encoded sequences show superior performance to other DQ recoupling sequences, which not only have a higher DQ recoupling efficiency but can also significantly reduce t1-noise. The origin of t1-noise is further discussed in detail via extensive numerical simulations. We envisage that such γ-encoded sequences are superior candidates for DQ recoupling in proton-based solid-state NMR spectroscopy due to its capability of efficiently exciting DQ coherences and suppressing t1-noise.
