We present a design scheme for phase-sensitive, convection-compensating diffusion experiments with gradient-selected homonuclear double-quantum filtering. The scheme consists of three blocks: a 1/2J evolution period during which antiphase single-quantum coherences are created; a period of double-quantum evolution; and another 1/2J period, during which antiphase single-quantum coherences are converted back into an in-phase state. A single coherence transfer pathway is selected using an asymmetric set of gradient pulses, and both diffusion sensitization and convection compensation are built into the gradient coherence transfer pathway selection. Double-quantum filtering can be used either for solvent suppression or spectral editing, and we demonstrate examples of both applications. The new experiment performs well in the absence of a field-frequency lock and does not require magnitude Fourier transformation. The proposed scheme may offer advantages in diffusion measurements of spectrally crowded systems, particularly small molecules solubilized in colloidal solutions or bound to macromolecules.

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.
