One-dimensional NMR spectroscopy has proven to be a powerful technique for screening compound libraries in drug discovery. We report a novel water ligand-observed gradient spectroscopy (WaterLOGSY) pulse sequence, named Aroma WaterLOGSY, that selectively detects aromatic WaterLOGSY signals from compounds or ligands. In the Aroma WaterLOGSY, water magnetization is untouched after water excitation and utilizes the whole period of the remaining pulse sequence to relax back to the +z direction. Due to the phase cycling design, the water magnetization is allowed to relax for the period of two full scans before it gets inverted again. Therefore, the recycle delay can be significantly shortened. Within similar experimental time, Aroma WaterLOGSY shows approximately two times higher sensitivity than the standard scheme. This method also allows the use of non-deuterated reagents, thereby accelerating experimental set-up time for ligand-binding studies.
