A Study on Spin-Lattice Relaxation of Methyl Protons in 2,6-Dichlorotoluene and N-Methyl Phthalimide
Jo Woong Lee*, Man-Ho Lim, Jung-Rae Rho
Spin-lattice relaxation of methyl protons in 2,6-dichlorotoluene and N-methyl phthalimide, each dissolved in CDCl3, has been studied at 34℃ and the contribution from spin-rotation interaction to the relaxation process has been separated from that due to dipole-dipole interactions among methyl protons. The results show that the spin-rotational contributions to the initial rate of relaxation in 2,6-dichlorotoluene and N-methyl phthalimide amount to 18 and 31%, respectively, of the total relaxation rate at 34℃. The method of separating the spin-rotational contribution from that of dipolar interactions adopted in this paper is based on the well known fact that in an A3 spin system such as methyl protons in liquid phase dipolar relaxation mechanism gives non-exponential decay of the z-component of total magnetization of protons while the random field fluctuation such as spin-rotational mechanism causes exponential decay.
