      GIAO calculations on 1,2,4-triazole thiones and their derivatives were carried out. The stability and shielding constants of tautomers/regioisomers was determined. Thermal energy and dipole moment values were used to determine relative populations. The tautomers/regioisomers present in solution were indentified, and shielding constants for those that could not be obtained experimentally were also calculated.

    2. Computational NMR coupling constants: Shifting and scaling factors for evaluating 1JCH (pages 775–787)

      Density functional theory assessment for the determination of one-bond carbon–hydrogen spin–spin coupling constants is examined. Predictions using five functionals and nine basis sets are computed and compared with experimental values. The collection of 68 organic molecular systems with 88 coupling constants includes different types of hybridized carbon atoms. Regression analysis was used as a basic and appropriate methodology for this type of comparative study. B3P86/aug-cc-pVTZ-J yields good results for the studied set.

    3. Polymeric adducts of rhodium(II) tetraacetate with aliphatic diamines: natural abundance 13C and 15N CPMAS NMR investigations (pages 788–794)

      Polymeric adducts of rhodium(II) tetraacetate with aliphatic diamines have been investigated by means of 13C and 15N CPMAS NMR, and density functional theory calculations. Elemental analysis and NMR data revealed the axial coordination mode of ligands and the formation of regular (1 : 1)n oligomeric chains.

    4. Reduction of conformational mobility and aggregation in W60G β2-microglobulin: assessment by 15N NMR relaxation (pages 795–807)

      Compared 15N NMR relaxation and MD studies were performed for human β2-microglobulin, a protein responsible for a pathologic amyloid deposition, and the mutant with glycyne replacing the natural tryptophan at position 60. The results show that the mutant exhibits reduced aggregation with respect to the wild-type protein because of increased conformational rigidity, against the expectation for the introduction of a residue without side-chain. The assessed properties of the mutant are consistent with its reduced amyloidogenicity.

    5. A toolbox of HSQC experiments for small molecules at high 13C-enrichment. Artifact-free, fully 13C-homodecoupled and JCC-encoding pulse sequences (pages 808–814)

      Mohammadali Foroozandeh, Patrick Giraudeau and Damien Jeannerat

      Version of Record online: 14 OCT 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/mrc.4019

      A set of HSQC experiments for 13C-enriched small molecules is presented. It includes artifact-free SE-HSQC and broadband 13C homodecoupled SE-HSQC sequences based on the Zangger–Sterk method. A high-sensitivity experiment based on frequency modulation and two sequences for the measurements of Jcc couplings are also presented.

    6. Experimental boundaries of the quantum rotor induced polarization (QRIP) in liquid state NMR (pages 815–820)

      Maik Icker, Pascal Fricke, Toni Grell, Julia Hollenbach, Henry Auer and Stefan Berger

      Version of Record online: 28 OCT 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/mrc.4021

      The results of quantum rotor induced polarization for signal enhancement in liquid state NMR using a variety of different compounds are presented. Influencing factors such as cooling temperature and molecular environment have been investigated systematically.

    7. CRAFT (complete reduction to amplitude frequency table) – robust and time-efficient Bayesian approach for quantitative mixture analysis by NMR (pages 821–829)

      Version of Record online: 24 OCT 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/mrc.4022

      Combined application of digital filtering of regions of interest along with Bayesian approach for time-domain analysis is demonstrated to be an efficient and robust approach for quantitative NMR. Frequency-amplitude tables generated directly from the FID can be used along with fingerprint chemical shifts for quantitative analysis of complex mixtures.
