Oscillating-gradient spin echo (OGSE) diffusion experiments have long been used to measure the short-time apparent diffusion coefficient, Dapp (t), in the presence of restricted diffusion, as well as the spectrum of the slow-motion velocity autocorrelation function. In this work, we focus on two previously unexplored aspects of OGSE experiments: convection compensation and acquisition of pure-phase diffusion spectra in the presence of homonuclear scalar couplings. We demonstrate that convection compensation afforded by single-echo OGSE compares well with that in double-echo convection-compensated PGSE experiments. We also show that, in the presence of homonuclear scalar couplings, setting the OGSE echo time to 1/2J enables acquisition of pure-phase diffusion spectra and yields more reliable D estimates than mixed-phase PGSE or OGSE spectra. Pure-phase OGSE acquisition is also compatible with measurements of the apparent diffusion coefficient at an arbitrary diffusion time. These features of OGSE can be valuable in diffusion measurements of scalar-coupled small-molecule probes in cellular and other heterogeneous systems.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
