slide2

The timescale in nmr is fairly long; processes occurring at frequencies of the order of chemical shift differences will tend to average out.

For a simple exchange process coalescence  /21/2

This suggests that if proton spins can be made to change of the order of 20 to 40 Hz, coupling could be averaged out and its effects eliminated (recall the decoupling observed in the alcohol OH)

We will return to other aspects of dynamic NMR later but first lets apply double resonance to 13C spectra.

slide6

13 C NMR Spectra

Unlike 1H nuclei, 13C are rare nuclei. The probability of finding a 13 C nucleu is approximately 1/100. The probability of finding 2 13 C next to each other is 2*.01*.01 = 2*10-4

In a molecule like n-butyl vinyl ether, the probability of finding a 13 C nucleus at any of the carbon positions is equal. The problem is that 1H will couple with 13C rendering a weak signal even weaker.

slide7

Advantage: signal to noise goes up

Disadvantage: spin coupling lost

slide8

Summary: Irradiation of the all the protons using a second broadband series of frequencies simultaneously while acquiring 13C spectrum as well causes?

  • Double resonance:
  • Multiplicity is lost and some structural information is lost (JCH)
  • When the protons are irradiated, the Boltzman distribution of spin states is perturbed, resulting in more H in the excited state than usual; if we apply Le Chatelier’s principle, the system responds to minimize the perturbation; if a 13C is next to one of the protons being irradiated, this perturbation results in more 13C nuclei returning to their ground state. This is a T1 process, meaning it will take a few seconds or longer (5 T1)to achieve this new equilibrium state. Once equilibrium is achieved, this leads to an enhancement of the 13C signal and is called the Nuclear Overhauser effect

Gated Decoupling: using the decoupler to effect characteristic changes

  • in the spectrum by turning the decoupler frequency on and off at specific intervals
  • Broadband decoupling at protons; observe 13C
  • Effect: decoupling, NOE effect;

in the spectrum

2. Gated decoupling to collape coupling without any NOE

NOE builds up with a time constant associated with 13C T1 values. If the rf frequency that irradiates the protons is left on, NOE is observed in a minute or so.

slide13

Why would you want gated decoupling without NOE?

Interested in area under the curves (quantitative analysis)

slide14

3. Gated decoupling with NOE without loss of coupling; retains NOE enhancement and coupling

slide15

4. Off resonance decoupling: some coupling is retained so that the multiplicity is retained providing information regarding neighbors; the NOE effect is partially retained; information regarding the magnitude of the JCH coupling is lost. The closer a nucleus is to the irradiating field, the more the coupling constant is reduced.

Measurement of T1’s

In a pulse experiment, if the rf field is left on long enough, the magnetization can be tipped 90°. What happens if the strong rf field is left on longer?

slide31

Measure the signal immediately after the 180 ° pulse by using a second weak pulse to tip the nuclei and generate a signal in the xy plane. Wait 5 T1

  • Repeat the experiment, now waiting  seconds after the 180 ° pulse.
  • Vary 
slide32

repeat but wait  sec before second pulse

 = 0 after 180 ° pulse and weak second pulse

wait 5 T1

repeat varying 

population of ground and excited states are equal

 = 5T1

slide34

The decrease in intensity and then buildup again is a first order rate process. The change in ln(magnetization) plotted against time results in a straight line. The slope of the line is the rate constant and 1/slope = T1

Any other uses ?

Solvent suppression: T1’s for small molecules such as solvents are usually longer than for other nuclei for both 13C and 1H

slide36

Measurement of T2 Spin Echo Technique

Suppose we give a 90 rf pulse

to a set of identical uncoupled

nuclei. Magnetization is developed

in the xy plane. After a period τ

a 180 ° pulse is given. An echo is

observed at 2 τ

Suppose that we repeat this experiment varying the length of of time between the original pulse and the second 180 ° pulse.

The intensity of the spin echo will decrease as a result of magnetic inhomogeneity and this decrease will follow first order kinetics. The reciprocal of the rate constant is equal to T2

slide42

Now consider a 13 CH fragment. The 13 C will signal will be a doublet due to the fact that half of the H’s will be and the others will be . Suppose our rotating frame of reference is at the chemical shift of the 13 C. Some of the magnetization of the 13 C signal will be moving J/2 faster than our rotating frame and half will be moving J/2 slower.

slide44

Following an initial 90 ° pulse

 = 0

 = Ta

180 ° pulse

 180° pulse  = 0

A spin echo 180 °out of phase will be observes at Ta later

 = 2Ta

 =6Ta

slide45

The phase of the spin echo of a 13 CH can be both positive and negative.

The spin echo of a 13 C is always has the same phase (quaternary carbon)

Lets now consider a 13 CH2 and use for our rotating frame the chemical shift of the13 C

slide46

 = 0

 = Ta

  • = 3Ta
slide47

 = 0

 180 ° pulse

 = 0

Net magnetization never out of phase

slide48

This forms the basis of the DEPT experiment also called APT and other similar experiments. It recovers the information lost when using broadband decoupling (ie. The number of attached protons)

Summary

Quaternary carbons and CH2 behave differently from CH and CH3 groups.
