A review of oxygen-17 solid-state NMR of organic materials--towards biological applications.
Lemaître V., Smith ME., Watts A.
17O solid state NMR of organic materials is developing rapidly. This article provides a snapshot of the current state of development of this field. The NMR techniques and enrichment protocols that are driving this progress are outlined. The (17)O parameters derived from solid-state NMR experiments are summarized and the structural sensitivity of the approach to effects such as hydrogen bonding highlighted. The prospects and challenges for (17)O solid-state NMR of biomolecules are discussed.
