NMR Spectroscopy Relaxation Time Phenomenon & Application

Relaxation- Return to Equilibrium t z axisx,y plane t E -t/T 2 t 1-e -t/T 1 t Longitudinal Transverse Transverse always faster!

3
magnetization vector's trajectory The initial vector, M o, evolves under the effects of T 1 & T 2 relaxation and from the influence of an applied rf-field. Here, the magnetization vector M(t) precesses about an effective field axis at a frequency determined by its offset. It's ends up at a "steady state" position as depicted in the lower plot of x- and y- magnetizations. ch/index.html Relaxation

4
The T 2 relaxation causes the horizontal (xy) magnetisation to decay. T 1 relaxation re-establishes the z-magnetisation. Note that T 1 relaxation is often slower than T 2 relaxation. Relaxation

Spin-lattice Relaxation time (Longitudinal) T 1 Relaxation mechanisms: 1. Dipole-Dipole interaction "through space"Dipole-Dipole interaction "through space" 2.

Chemical Shift Anisotropy RelaxationChemical Shift Anisotropy Relaxation 6. Spin RotationSpin Rotation

8
Relaxation Spin-lattice relaxation Spin-lattice relaxation converts the excess energy into translational, rotational, and vibrational energy of the surrounding atoms and molecules (the lattice). Spin-spin relaxation Spin-spin relaxation transfers the excess energy to other magnetic nuclei in the sample.

T 1 relaxation

12
Interaction Range of interaction (Hz) relevant parameters Dipolar coupling abundance of magnetically active nuclei - size of the magnetogyric ratio Quadrupolar coupling size of quadrupolar coupling constant - electric field gradient at the nucleus Paramagnetic concentration of paramagnetic impurities Scalar coupling size of the scalar coupling constants Chemical Shift Anisotropy (CSA) size of the chemical shift anisotropy - symmetry at the nuclear site 6- Spin rotation

13
Spin-spin relaxation (Transverse) T 2 T 2 represents the lifetime of the signal in the transverse plane (XY plane) T 2 is the relaxation time that is responsible for the line width. line width at half-height=1/T 2

14
Spin-spin relaxation (Transverse) T 2 Two factors contribute to the decay of transverse magnetization. molecular interactions ( lead to a pure pure T 2 molecular effect) variations in B o ( lead to an inhomogeneous T 2 effect)

21
T 1 and T 2 In non-viscous liquids, usually T 2 = T 1. But some process like scalar coupling with quadrupolar nuclei, chemical exchange, interaction with a paramagnetic center, can accelerate the T 2 relaxation such that T 2 becomes shorter than T 1.

23
For peptides in aqueous solutions the dipole-dipole spin-lattice and spin- spin relaxation process are mainly mediated by other nearby protons Relaxation and correlation time

24
Why The Interest In Dynamics? Function requires motion/kinetic energy Entropic contributions to binding events Protein Folding/Unfolding Uncertainty in NMR and crystal structures Effect on NMR experiments- spin relaxation is dependent on rate of motions know dynamics to predict outcomes and design new experiments Quantum mechanics/prediction (masochism)

28
NMR Parameters That Report On Dynamics of Molecules Number of signals per atom: multiple signals for slow exchange between conformational states Linewidths: narrow = faster motion, wide = slower; dependent on MW and conformational states Exchange of NH with solvent: requires local and/or global unfolding events slow timescales Heteronuclear relaxation measurements R 1 (1/T 1 ) spin-lattice- reports on fast motions R 2 (1/T 2 ) spin-spin- reports on fast & slow Heteronuclear NOE- reports on fast & some slow
