Abstract

We report the implementation of our novel rare-spin homonuclear correlation experiment, namely, Low-Abundance Single-transition correlation SpectroscopY (LASSY), for 119/117/115Sn NMR at natural abundance. Our pulse sequence results in diagonal suppressed COSY-style display and outperforms the optimal homonuclear correlation experiment for rare spins, which involves double quantum evolution (INADEQUATE CR). The new experiment maximizes efficiency both in respect of pulse transformations as well as relaxation effects, and gives rise to a simplified two-dimensional (2D) spectrum with considerably reduced crowding, exhibiting only one transition in each cross peak, instead of four. Performance optimization of LASSY is carried out in light of the relatively large line widths typical of Sn NMR in solution state. The superior performance of the sequence is demonstrated on dimeric tetraorganodistannoxane samples.
