3 Single Crystal or Polycrystalline (Powder) Samples


5 Spin 1 creates a tiny magnetic field at spin 2 and vise versa, introducing direct magnetic coupling between them.

6 The magnetic field produced by spin 1 at the position of spin 2 is Which causes an energy of amount This is the same energy that the spin 1 gains from the magnetic field produced by the spin 2. (unit vector) r 1,2 1 2

7 Expressing the energy in quantum mechanics, we have the direct dipolar interaction Hamiltonian as [with ] which can be written in compact form i j X Y Z

8 i j X Y Z

9 It is symmetric It is traceless (see the reason?) where D is called dipolar coupling tensor.

10 Principal-Axis System (PAS) In the principal-axis system (PAS), only the diagonal elements of D are non-zero and i j

11 Spherical Coordinates (x,y,z)

12 H D in Spherical coordinates Zero-quantum terms Single-quantum terms Double-quantum terms

13 Principal-Axis System (PAS)

14 (dipolar tensor in PAS) and spin part (operator tensor) The most important terms are those commuting with : Expressed with irreducible tensors

15 Why irreducible tensors? Rotation is treated most conveniently by means of irreducible tensors No matter how many rotations you have, the calculation is straightforward if the Hamiltonian is expressed in terms of irreducible tensors. PAS  Rotor  LAB


17 Electric quadrupolar interaction For a quadrupolar nucleus (spin>=1), the electric field gradient (EFG) at the nucleus may cause energy shift for the nucleus. The general form for EFG is a tensor (like dipolar coupling tensor).

18 The quadrupolar Hamiltonian can be derived as In the principal axis-system (PAS), it is given by


20 In arbitrary coordinate systems, electric quadrupolar interaction is given by with spatial part (quadrupolar tensor in PAS): and spin part (operator tensor) β α γ

21 Secular term (First order) For many quadrupolar nuclei, higher orders may become appreciable and need to be removed.

22 Chemical shift interaction The most significant term is

23 J-coupling interaction The expression of J tensor is complicated and is not discussed here. Unlike direct dipolar interaction, J-coupling tensor has non-zero isotropic component and in most cases, it is the only term to be considered.

24 The most important internal interactions in NMR spectroscopy are Chemical shift interaction J-coupling interaction Dipolar coupling interaction Quadrupolar interaction Spin-rotation interaction (for rotating molecules, not studied here) All of them can be written in the form of where R is a rank-2 tensor (matrix), varying with the type of interactions.

30 Decoupling Sequences Hetronuclear decoupling: CW TPPM Homonuclear decoupling WAHUHA MREV HR CORY etc

31 CRAMPS (combination of rotation and multi-pulse spectroscopy

32 Indirect Spin-Spin Coupling In contrast to the direct, through space dipole-dipole coupling of two nuclear magnetic moments, the indirect spin-spin coupling interaction is mediated by the electrons of the intervening bonds. The isotropic J coupling constant is familiar from solution NMR. We are also interested in anisotropies in the indirect spin-spin coupling tensor, denoted as J. This anisotropy can be measured by a few different techniques; solid-state NMR is especially useful in certain cases. Wasylishen J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2000, 122, "Anisotropy in the 199Hg-31P Indirect Spin-Spin Coupling Tensor of a 1:2 Mercury-Phosphine Complex. A Phosphorus Single-Crystal NMR Study", Michael D. Lumsden, Roderick E. Wasylishen, and James. F. Britten J. Phys. Chem. 1995, 99,


34 Dipolar-Chemical Shift NMR (1D) The interplay of chemical shift anisotropy and spin- spin coupling interactions results in complex line shapes. The dipolar-chemical shift method is useful in the case of isolated spin pairs. Many other cases where more than one interaction are involved.


36 Cross polarization CP condition: The nutation frequency must be the same for the two coupled spins: CP incorporated with MAS  CPMAS—one of the most important solid state NMR techniques. CP contact time: several hundred microseconds to tens of milliseconds. Purpose: To enhance the sensitivity of the lower γ spins such as carbon- 13. maximal enhancement factor: γ I /γ S Other advantages: Shorter recycle delay time Distinguish the interconnectivity of nuclear spins such as the protonation of a certain carbon nucleus.
