Abstract

Fast magic-angle spinning (MAS) NMR is used to probe intermolecular interactions in a diethylcarbamazine salt, that is widely used as a treatment against adult worms of Wuchereria bancrofti which cause a common disease in tropical countries named filariasis. Specifically, a dihydrogen citrate salt that has improved thermal stability and solubility as compared to the free form is studied. One-dimensional H-1, C-13 and N-15 and two-dimensional H-1-C-13 and N-14-H-1 heteronuclear correlation NMR experiments under moderate and fast MAS together with GIPAW (CASTEP) calculations enable the assignment of the H-1, C-13 and N-14/N-15 resonances. A two-dimensional H-1-H-1 double-quantum (DQ) -single-quantum (SQ) MAS spectrum recorded with BaBa recoupling at 60 kHz MAS identifies specific proton-proton proximities associated with citrate-citrate and citrate-diethylcarbamazine intermolecular interactions.
