Default Answered: alignment in a magnetic field

hi all,

I have a general question about alignment in a magnetic field.
For me, alignment in alignment media is easier to grasp because of interactions that I am familiar with as a chemist.

But, whats the principle behind molecules that align in a magnetic field?
There are a lot of examples like cyanometmyoglobin (from the Prestegard paper) where paramagnetic susceptibility plays a role. Thats understandable from my side.
But what about for instance short DNA dimers (helices), collagen gels or bacteriophages?
I could not really find a nice (clear to me) explanation, why these molecules align...

Does anyone of you knows more about it?
thanx a lot!
Hydrazin

Elongated molecules like DNA helices, bacteriophage etc. have intrinsic large magnetic susceptibility anisotropies which aligns them in magnetic fields (similar to magnetic dipoles). Check out papers from the 80s by A. A. Bothner-By for more details.

[NMR analysis blog] Alignment of NMR spectra – Part IV: Advanced Alignment
Alignment of NMR spectra – Part IV: Advanced Alignment Previous posts on this series: Alignment of NMR spectra – Part I: The problem Alignment of NMR spectra – Part II: Binning / Bucketing Alignment of NMR spectra – Part III: Global Alignment As I mentioned in my previous post, simple alignment based on shifting or referencing the whole spectrum is not enough in cases where there are different local chemical shift fluctuations. Resorting back to the synthetic data set used in the previous posts, let me introduce a semi-automatic method designed specifically to align spectra having...

[NMR analysis blog] Alignment of NMR spectra – Part III: Global Alignment
Alignment of NMR spectra – Part III: Global Alignment Previous posts on this series: Alignment of NMR spectra – Part I: The problem Alignment of NMR spectra – Part II: Binning / Bucketing We have seen that binning helps in minimizing, for example, the effect of pH-induced fluctuations in chemical shift so that, in the field of NMR-based metabonomics studies, ensuring that signals for a given metabolite appear at the same location in all spectra. One evident disadvantage of binning is that it greatly reduces the spectral resolution (e.g. in a 500 MHz instrument, a typical 64 Kb...
