4 Selected NMR properties of some elements Physical Methods – Magnetic Resonance Gyromagnetic ratio (10 7 rad T -1 s -1 )

5 Trends in Chemical Shifts Physical Methods – Magnetic Resonance Remember: The diamagnetic shielding generally becomes smaller as the electron density at the nucleus decreases. Thus electronegative substituents, positive charge or increase in oxidation state usually result in decreased shielding and increased shift. Opposite effects may be observed for transition metals (ligand effects).

8 Chemical Exchange Physical Methods – Magnetic Resonance Remember: Examples of Fluxional inorganic systems. Axial-equatorial exchange in trigonal bipyramidal systems (PF 5, SF 4, PF 4 NMe 2, Fe(CO) 5 ) Bridging/axial exchange in carbonyls. Bridging terminal exchange in boranes (B 2 H 6 etc.);borohydrides (Al(BH 4 ) 3 ) Ring-whizzing in  1 -cyclopentadienides (Cu(PMe 3 )(  1 -C 5 H 5 ) Interchange of ring bonding modes in compounds with mixed heptacity ( e.g. (  1 -C 5 H 5 ) 2 (  5 C 5 H 5 ) 2 Ti: (  4 -C 6 H 6 )(  6 -C 5 H 5 )Os

18 Physical Methods – Magnetic Resonance Echo Trains

19 The Method of Spin Decoupling Physical Methods – Magnetic Resonance FACT: Spin–Spin Coupling yields important information but NMR data interpretation complicated by line splittings. A SOLUTION: simplify spectra by removing some (chosen) splittings and learn about which nuclei couple to which. HOW: apply a second Radiofrequency source (S 2 ) with strength B 2 in addition to transmitter S 1 used for detection of spectrum (a so-called double resonance experiment). S 2 is positioned at the resonance of a particular nucleus. RESULT: decoupled spectra are less crowded and have much higher sensitivity as all available NMR intensity concentrated into single line (and Nuclear Overhauser).

20 The Origin of the Spin Decoupling Effect Physical Methods – Magnetic Resonance A X J I(X) = I(A) = 1/2 X( ) A A( ) X Irradiation of X at its resonance frequency induces rapid transitions from X( ) to X( ) and vice versa.

Prerequisite for this cross relaxation experiment is that the spin lattice relaxation of the nuclei is dominated by dipole-dipole interaction with the other nuclear spins.

25 Physical Methods – Magnetic Resonance The origin of the Nuclear Overhauser Effect Irradiate proton resonances C H H BoltzmannProtons saturatedCross Relaxation Takes spins from top to bottom level, competition with 13 C relaxation (restoring Boltzmann in 13 C population) sat Result: saturated proton transitions, 13 C population difference increased 3-fold

26 Physical Methods – Magnetic Resonance The maximum attainable enhancement (the fractional increase in intensity)  max  I /  S where I is the saturated spin and S is the observed spin. Maximum effect occurs when there is no “leakage” as a result of relaxation mechanisms other than the dipole- dipole interaction (a through space interaction!). For homonuclear systems, maximum enhancement is 50%. Remember that 15 N and 29 Si have negative .

46 Physical Methods – Magnetic Resonance 2 D NOESY – Why? Advantages wrt 1D 1 H{ 1 H} NOE: Simplification of crowded spectra No need for selective excitation of individual resonances Higher efficiency

47 Physical Methods – Magnetic Resonance NMR in Solids Problems: Through Space dipolar coupling not averaged out (broadened spectra) Hence, long spin lattice relaxation times T 1 (lack of modulation of dipolar coupling) and therefore restriction of pulse repetition rate, consequently, poor S/N Fast spin-spin relaxation times T 2 (line broadening) Chemical Shift anisotropy not averaged out (line broadening) Often broad, structureless resonance Distance dependent – information on spin separations!

51 Magic Angle Spinning Physical Methods – Magnetic Resonance = 0 for   At this angle all dipolar interactions disappear! Recall here that the resonance frequency of a given nucleus X coupled to a nucleus A is determined by the total field it experiences in z-direction, ie, B 0 ± B A  z where B A  z is the dipolar field generated by A on X.

52 But what about a powder? Every molecule AX has a unique  but different molecules have different  We need a trick. Physical Methods – Magnetic Resonance A powder sample is mounted for magic angle spinning and gives the internuclear vectors an average orientation at the spinning angle o Also removes chemical shift anisotropy (also follows the (3cos 2  -1) law).

53 How fast can you spin? - Or the relevance of the spinning speed. Physical Methods – Magnetic Resonance Assume: Static line width of resonance to be studied (ie, undesired interaction) is f Hz then spinning speed must exceed f Hz if all broadening interaction are to be nullified. Spinning speeds of up to 35 kHz possible.

85 Physical Methods – Magnetic Resonance “The problems of resolving the hyperfine lines may be linked to that of a man with several telephones on his desk all of which ring at the same time. If he tries to answer them all, he hears a jumble of conversations as all callers speak to him at once. Of course his callers have no problem – they only hear one voice.

86 This is analogous to recognising Physical Methods – Magnetic Resonance …that each nucleus experiences the hyperfine field of only one electron. Each (spin-1/2) nucleus then gives rise to two resonance conditions depending on whether the electron hyperfine field opposes or augments the applied field. How? A strong radiofrequency (NMR) field induces NMR transitions which are observed as a change in the intensity of an electron resonance condition. Electron Nuclear Double Resonance (ENDOR)
