Characterization of very fast motions in solid peptides by solid-state nitrogen-14 NMR

Phantom IRM

Experimental double-quantum 14N/1H correlation spectrum of the -NH3 group (I) and the two rigid amide NH pairs (II) in the tripeptide Ala-Ala-Gly. The 2.5 mm rotor was spun at 29.76 kHz in a static field of 18.8 T at 49 °C. (d, f) Experimental cross sections parallel to the vertical dimension of the double-quantum spectrum of sites I and II. (e,g) Simulated double-quantum spectra of sites I and II.

Pulse 1

Simulations of the line width of single-quantum 14N spectra as a function of the exchange rate 102 < k < 108 s-1, assuming two-site jumps.
