The potential of high-field NMR to measure solid-state (95) Mo and (183) W NMR in polyoxometalates (POMs) is explored using some archetypical structures like Lindqvist, Keggin, and Dawson as model compounds that are well characterized in solution. NMR spectra in static and under magic angle spinning (MAS) were obtained, and their analysis allowed extraction of the NMR parameters, including chemical shift anisotropy (CSA) and quadrupolar coupling parameters. Despite the inherent difficulties of measurement in solid state of these low-gamma NMR nuclei, due mainly to the low spectral resolution and poor signal-to-noise ratio, the observed global trends compare well with the solution state NMR data...

A comparative study of amine and silver carboxylate adducts [R1COOAg-2(R2NH2)] (R1 = 1, 7, 11; R2 = 8, 12) as a key intermediate in NPs synthesis is carried out via differential scanning calorimetry, solid-state FT-infrared spectroscopy, (13)C CP MAS NMR, powder X-ray diffraction and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and various solution NMR spectroscopies ((1)H and (13)C NMR, pulsed field gradient spin-echo NMR, and ROESY). It is proposed that carboxyl moieties in the presence of amine ligands are bound to silver ions via chelating bidentate type of coordination as opposed to bridging bidentate coordination of pure silver carboxylates resulting from the formation of dimeric units...

Atomic substitutions are a central feature of the physicochemical properties of an increasing number of solid-state materials. The complexity that this chemical disorder locally generates in otherwise crystalline solids poses a major challenge to the understanding of the relationships between the structure and properties of materials at the atomic and molecular level. Strategies designed to efficiently explore the ensemble of local chemical environments present in disordered crystals and predict their signatures in local spectroscopies such as solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) are therefore essential...

Rotational resonance (R2) is one of the widely applied techniques in solid-state NMR for recoupling a homonuclear dipolar interaction under magic-angle spinning (MAS). R2 occurs as the result of interference between the difference of the chemical shifts and MAS. In this work, we extend R2 to a heteronuclear dipolar interaction in the interaction frame of RF irradiation. Based on the average Hamiltonian theory, we show that the recoupling of the heteronuclear dipolar (I-S) interaction occurs at the recoupling conditions written as ΩI(')±ΩS(')=kωr (k=0,±1,±2), where ΩX(') is the RF offset for spin-X (X = I or S) scaled by RF irradiation...

Cation-π interactions drive the self-assembly and cohesion of many biological molecules, including the adhesion proteins of several marine organisms. Although the origin of cation-π bonds in isolated pairs has been extensively studied, the energetics of cation-π-driven self-assembly in molecular films remains uncharted. Here we use nanoscale force measurements in combination with solid-state NMR spectroscopy to show that the cohesive properties of simple aromatic- and lysine-rich peptides rival those of the strong reversible intermolecular cohesion exhibited by adhesion proteins of marine mussel...

15N R1ρ relaxation experiments in solid-state NMR are sensitive to timescales and amplitudes of internal protein motions in the hundreds of ns to µs time window, difficult to probe with solution-state NMR. Using 15N R1ρ relaxation experiments with variable MAS frequency (60-110 kHz) and a model-free analysis, we describe an approach to detect hundreds of ns to low µs protein dynamics and determine residue-specific correlation times from the ratio of 15N R1ρ rate constants at different MAS frequencies. We find that microcrystalline ubiquitin exhibits small-amplitude dynamics on a timescale of about 1 µs across the entire protein, and larger amplitude motions, also on the 1 µs timescale, for several sites, including the β1-β2 turn and the N-terminus of the α-helix...

In terms of structural biology, solid-state NMR experiments and strategies have been well established for resonance assignments leading to the determination of three-dimensional structures of insoluble membrane proteins in their native-like environment. It is also known that NMR has the unique capabilities to characterize structure-function relationships of membrane-bound biological systems beyond structural biology. Here, we report on solid-state NMR experiments and strategies for extracting functional activities on a sub-msec time scale...

UV-irradiation of a self-assembled benzophenone bis-urea macrocycle generates μM amounts of radicals that persist for weeks under ambient conditions. High-Field EPR and variable temperature X-band EPR studies suggest a resonance stabilized radical pair through H-abstraction. These endogenous radicals were applied as a polarizing agent for magic angle spinning (MAS) dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) NMR enhancement. The field-stepped DNP enhancement profile exhibits a sharp peak with a maximum enhancement of εon/off = 4 superimposed on a nearly constant DNP enhancement of εon/off = 2 over a broad field range...

Dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) via the dissolution method has alleviated the insensitivity problem in liquid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy by amplifying the signals by several thousand-fold. This NMR signal amplification process emanates from the microwave-mediated transfer of high electron spin alignment to the nuclear spins at high magnetic field and cryogenic temperature. Since the interplay between the electrons and nuclei is crucial, the chemical composition of a DNP sample such as the type of free radical used, glassing solvents, or the nature of the target nuclei can significantly affect the NMR signal enhancement levels that can be attained with DNP...

The lipid-protein film covering the interface of the lung alveolar in mammals is vital for proper lung function and its deficiency is related to a range of diseases. Here we present a molecular-level characterization of a clinical-grade porcine lung surfactant extract using a multitechnique approach consisting of [Formula: see text]-[Formula: see text] solid-state nuclear magnetic spectroscopy, small- and wide-angle X-ray scattering, and mass spectrometry. The detailed characterization presented for reconstituted membranes of a lung extract demonstrates that the molecular structure of lung surfactant strongly depends on the concentration of cholesterol...

N-H bond activation of gaseous ammonia is achieved at room temperature in a reversible solvent-free reaction using a solid dicyclopalladated azobenzene complex. Monitoring of the gas-solid reaction in real-time by in situ solid-state Raman spectroscopy enabled a detailed insight into the stepwise activation pathway proceeding to the final amido complex via a stable diammine intermediate. Gas-solid synthesis allowed for isolation and subsequent structural characterization of the intermediate and the final amido product, which presents the first dipalladated complex with the Pd(II)-(μ-NH2)-Pd(II) bridge...

The aggregation and structure of D-α-tocopheryl polyethylene glycol succinate micelles, TPGS-1000, an amphiphilic derivative of vitamin E, were characterized by scattering and spectroscopic methods, and the impact of different cyclodextrins (CDs) on the self-assembly studied, with the view of combining these two versatile pharmaceutical excipients in drug formulations. Combined SANS, DLS, time-resolved and steady-state fluorescence emission experiments revealed a core-shell architecture with a high aggregation number (Nagg ~ 100) and a highly hydrated PEO corona (~ 11 molecules of solvent per EO unit)...

A two-step sol-gel process composed of hydrolysis under acidic conditions and polycondensation under basic conditions in a liquid surfactant has produced homogeneous pore structure based on crosslinked nano-sized colloidal particles. Visible-light transmittance of the aerogels varies with the concentration of base catalyst, and reaches as high as 87 % (at wavelength of 550 nm for a 10 mm-thick sample)...

Phosphorus (P) eutrophication is a major pollution problem globally, with unprecedented amount of P emanating from agricultural sources. But little is known about the optimization of soil-biochar P sorption capacity. The study objective was to determine how biochar feedstocks and pyrolysis conditions influences carbon (C) thermal stability, C composition and pH and in turn influence the phosphorus sorption optimization. Biochar was produced from switchgrass, kudzu and Chinese tallow at 200, 300, 400, 500, 550, 650,750 °C...

Dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) via the dissolution method has become one of the rapidly emerging techniques to alleviate the low signal sensitivity in nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy and imaging (MRI). In this paper, we report on the development and (13) C hyperpolarization efficiency of a homebuilt dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) system operating at 6.423 T and 1.4 K. The DNP hyperpolarizer system was assembled on a wide-bore superconducting magnet, equipped with a standard continuous-flow cryostat, and a 180 GHz microwave source with 120 mW power output and wide 4 GHz frequency tuning range...

Proteins exist in ensembles of conformational states that interconvert on various motional time scales. High-energy states of proteins, often referred to as conformationally excited states, are sparsely populated and have been found to play an essential role in many biological functions. However, detecting these states is quite difficult for conventional structural techniques. Recent progress in solution NMR spectroscopy made it possible to detect conformationally excited states in soluble proteins and characterize them at high resolution...

With recent advances in the field of diagnostics and theranostics, liposomal technology has secured a fortified position as a potential nanocarrier. Specifically, radiation/photo-sensitive liposomes containing photo-polymerizable cross-linking lipids are intriguing as they can impart the vesicles with highly interesting properties such as response to stimulus and improved shell stability. In this work, 1,2-bis(10,12-tricosadiynoyl)-sn-glycero-3-phosphoethanolamine (DTPE) is used as a photo-polymerizable lipid to form functional hybrid-liposomes as it can form intermolecular cross-linking through the diacetylenic groups...

Water is essential for protein folding and assembly of amyloid fibrils. Internal water cavities have been proposed for several amyloid fibrils, but no direct structural and dynamical data have been reported on the water dynamics and site-specific interactions of water with the fibrils. Here we use solid-state NMR spectroscopy to investigate the water interactions of several Aβ40 fibrils. (1)H spectral lineshapes, T2 relaxation times, and two-dimensional (2D) (1)H-(13)C correlation spectra show that there are five distinct water pools: three are peptide-bound water, while two are highly dynamic water that can be assigned to interfibrillar water and bulk-like matrix water...
