Band-selective NMR experiments for suppression of unwanted signals in complex mixtures†
Band-selective NMR experiments are presented that allow selective suppression of unwanted signals (SUN) from the spectra of complex metabolite mixtures. As a result, spectral overlap and dynamic range problems are substantially reduced and low-intensity signals normally covered by dominant signals can be observed. The usefulness of the experiments is exemplified with selective suppression of sugar signals from the NMR spectra of fruit juice and a plant sample. Other possible applications include blood, milk, and wine samples.
