  • Dipolar Coupling and Solids NMR

    BCMB/CHEM 8190

  • 13C CP-MAS, 30 mg cellulose, 9 min13C solution, sat’d glucose, 8 min

    Liquids v. Solids One can collect similar spectra

    but some tricks are required

  • The Classical Dipole-Dipole Interaction:

    E = (μ0/4π)(( μ1· μ2)/r3 – 3(μ1· r)( μ2·r)/r5)

    r = i rx + j ry + k rz = i r sinθcosφ + j r sinθsinφ + k r cosθ

    z θ



  • Quantum Mechanical Dipolar Coupling

    μ = (γh/2π)(i Ix + j Iy + k Iz) = (γh/2π)f(Iz, I+,-)

    HD = (μ0γ1γ2h2)/(16π3r3)(A + B + C + D + E + F)

    A,B,C .. Grouped by type of operator, 0,1,2 Quantum

    A = - Iz1Iz2(3cos2θ - 1), B = (1/4)(I+1I-2 + I-1I+2) (3cos2θ - 1)


    E = -(3/4)(I+1I+2)sin2θexp(-2iφ), F = ……..

  • To First Order Only Iz1Iz2 Term is Important

    A doublet would result – much like scalar coupling but large: as much as -60,000 Hz for a 13C-1H pair.

    Splittings are angle dependent – ranging from -60,000 to +30,000. In a solid all possibilities superimpose: The result is a powder pattern

    Points at 90º on a sphere are most abundant


  • Other Anisotropies in NMR

    H = HCSA + HD + HQ...

    All share the following property: Solution: < 3 cos 2 θ '– 1 > = 0 Solids: (3 cos 2 θ ' – 1) ≠ 0

    CSA powder pattern

  • Techniques in Solids NMR

    • Cross Polarization (CP)

    • Magic Angle Spinning (MAS)

    • High power decoupling

  • Cross Polarization Improves Sensitivity

    Magnetization transfer via dipolar coupling.

    Hartman-Hahn: γIBI = γSBS

  • Magic Angle Spinning • All interactions can be written in terms of Y20(θ) = (3cos2(θ)–1)/2

    • Y20(θ) can be transformed to another frame using Wigner Rotation elements: Y20(θ) = Σ2m=-2 D2m0(θ’’,φ’’) Y2m (θ’,φ’)

    • D2m0(θ’’,φ’’) = (4π/5) Y2m (θ’’,φ’’)

    • With rapid averaging over φ’’, all terms except Y20(θ’’) go to zero

    • Selecting θ’’ = 54.7°, all interactions, regardless of θ’ value, are zero • (3cos2(θ)–1) = (3cos2(θ’)–1) = 0

    Dipolar couplings CSA = 0 Quadrupolar couplings

    • 100 MHz Spectrometer

  • High power decoupling

    Solution 13C-1H J = ~125 Hz

    Solid 13C-1H J + D = ~125 kHz

  • Cellulose (10 minute spectra)


    What is this peak?

  • Spinning Sidebands are Frequently Seen

    When rotation rate is not >> anisotropies Resonance position is modulated by rotation Sidebands at the spinning frequency are produced

    There are tricks that remove these: TOSS – Total Suppression of Spinning Sidebands 180º pulses during rotor cycle dephases sideband magnetization but preserves center band magnetization

(a) 2D 13C-13C NMR spectrum, obtained in a 14.1-T magnetic field with 13.6-kHz magic-angle spinning, using a 2.94-ms finite-pulse radio- frequency-driven recoupling (fpRFDR) sequence for spin polarization transfer in the mixing period.
