Natural Isotopic Abundance 13C and 15N Multidimensional Solid-State NMR Enabled by Dynamic Nuclear Polarization. Dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) has made feasible solid-state NMR experiments that were previously thought impractical due to sensitivity limitations. One such class of experiments is the structural characterization of organic and biological samples at natural isotopic abundance (NA). Herein, we describe the many advantages of DNP-enabled ssNMR at NA, including the extraction of long-range distance constraints using dipolar recoupling pulse sequences without the deleterious effects of dipolar truncation. In addition to the theoretical underpinnings in the analysis of these types of experiments, numerous applications of DNP-enabled ssNMR at NA are discussed.
