[NMR] 5th DNP/NMR Educational Tutorial, June 05/ Dr. Yusuke Nishiyama from JEOL



Dear NMR Enthusiast,

We are happy to announce the 5th Educational Tutorial. 

This week Dr. Yusuke Nishiyama, JEOL, Japan will talk about 

"Practical aspects of Fast MAS Solid-State NMR".

Here are the webinar details:

Time: Friday, June 05, 2020, 07:00 AM California or 10:00 AM Boston or 4:00 PM Paris or 11:00 PM Tokyo
Meeting ID: 956 1725 2728

The current format of the tutorial will consist of a 35-minute talk which will include both basic and advanced material and 25 minutes of discussion. Prof. Vipin Agarwal, TIFR Hyderabad, India will be a special panelist in the discussion session.

Please note that we have advanced the timing of (only) this session by 90 minutes for Speaker's convenience.

Best regards,
Global NMR Discussion Meetings

[NMR] ABSTRACT DEADLINE EXTENDED for PERM 2020: the first Parahydrogen Enhanced Resonance Meeting



CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
(Virtual) Parahydrogen Enhanced Resonance Meeting 2020
1st annual PERM, Monday, July 27th- Wednesday, July 29th on Zoom

We would like to invite you to submit an abstract to the first annual Parahydrogen Enhanced Resonance Meeting, PERM 2020. The first instance of this (PERManent) meeting will be online with the benefit of zero registration cost. Not only are we making hyperpolarization affordable, but also the scientific conferences that go along with it! The meeting will feature invited educational talks, promoted research talks, plus brief “power pitches” that may provide previews to virtual poster sessions organized in parallel zoom meetings. (Food and Drinks will have to be provided privately.) All recorded materials will be made publicly available on a PERM YouTube channel within 2 weeks after the conference. Students (and those new to parahydrogen-enhanced NMR/MRI) are especially encouraged to participate!
Please submit an abstract (pdf format) with a maximum of 300 words in 12pt font along with 1 Figure (plus title and author list) to the PERM Organization Committee by Monday, June 1st 2020 – detailed abstract instructions will be posted on the conference web-site soon. Please indicate whether you are willing to have your lecture/power pitch recorded. If yes, your recorded lecture will be featured on the conference’s YouTube channel (PERManently).


Important dates:
Abstract Deadline (extended): Monday, June 8th
Invitations for Presentations: Monday, June 22nd
Acceptance Deadline: Wednesday, July 1st
Registration Closes: Monday, July 20th
Conference Dates Monday, July 27th-Weds July 29th 


Notice that exact presentation times will take into account presenters time zones. Relax, we will not make you give a talk in your nighttime! It’s a jet-lag free conference. Welcome to the future! Submit your abstracts at http://perm-conference.org/. Finally, we encourage you to forward this message to any other scientists and students who may be interested.

Sincerely, your PERM Organization Committee.

"Emerging Topics in Biomolecular Magnetic Resonance"

on June 4th, 2020

7 a.m. PST / 10 a.m. EST / 4 p.m. CEST / 7.30 p.m IST / 10 p.m. CST



Lewis Kay and Daniella Goldfarb will make a fantastic start:

Mn(II) DEER tracks two ‘closed’ ATP-, ADP-dependent conformations in yeast Hsp90 chaperone

Lewis Kay (University of Toronto)
NMR: The Big and the Invisible

This is a perfect opportunity to learn about cutting edge magnetic resonance in biological systems in times where conferences have been cancelled around the globe.

The series takes place weekly on Thursdays and features two cutting-edge 30 minute presentations.

The series has support of the ICMRBS (http://www.icmrbs.org) and is organized by Loren Andreas, Stefan Glöggler, Christian Griesinger, Mei Hong, Oscar Millet, Art Palmer and Markus Zweckstetter.

Creating a clinical platform for carbon‐13 studies using the sodium‐23 and proton resonances #DNPNMR

Grist, James T., Esben S.S. Hansen, Juan D. Sánchez‐Heredia, Mary A. McLean, Rasmus Tougaard, Frank Riemer, Rolf F. Schulte, et al. “Creating a Clinical Platform for Carbon‐13 Studies Using the Sodium‐23 and Proton Resonances.” Magnetic Resonance in Medicine, March 13, 2020, mrm.28238.


Purpose: Calibration of hyperpolarized 13C-MRI is limited by the low signal from endogenous carbon-containing molecules and consequently requires 13C-enriched external phantoms. This study investigated the feasibility of using either 23Na-MRI or 1H-MRI to calibrate the 13C excitation.

Methods: Commercial 13C-coils were used to estimate the transmit gain and center frequency for 13C and 23Na resonances. Simulations of the transmit B1 profile of a Helmholtz loop were performed. Noise correlation was measured for both nuclei. A retrospective analysis of human data assessing the use of the 1H resonance to predict [1-13C]pyruvate center frequency was also performed. In vivo experiments were undertaken in the lower limbs of 6 pigs following injection of hyperpolarized 13C-pyruvate.

Results: The difference in center frequencies and transmit gain between tissue 23Na and [1-13C]pyruvate was reproducible, with a mean scale factor of 1.05179 ± 0.00001 and 10.4 ± 0.2 dB, respectively. Utilizing the 1H water peak, it was possible to retrospectively predict the 13C-pyruvate center frequency with a standard deviation of only 11 Hz sufficient for spectral–spatial excitation-based studies.

Conclusion: We demonstrate the feasibility of using the 23Na and 1H resonances to calibrate the 13C transmit B1 using commercially available 13C-coils. The method provides a simple approach for in vivo calibration and could improve clinical workflow.

Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Instrumentation #DNPNMR

Instrumentation for DNP-NMR spectroscopy has many similar components to instrumentation for EPR spectroscopy. This is a comprehensive review of the current state-of-the-art in EPR instrumentation, covering all aspects from magnet technology, pulse generation, detection and resonator design.



Reijerse, Edward, and Anton Savitsky. “Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Instrumentation.” In EMagRes, edited by Robin K. Harris and Roderick L. Wasylishen, 187–206. Chichester, UK: John Wiley & Sons, Ltd, 2017.


The article gives a general overview of instrumentation commonly used in electron paramagnetic resonance. It includes magnet systems, microwave bridge configurations, and sample cryostats. A special focus has been placed on the discussion of various resonator and sample probe designs used in CW as well as pulsed EPR. Specialized EPR applications such as very high frequency EPR, electrochemistry, stopped flow, and the application to volume limited samples are briefly discussed.
