Replacement of a series of N consecutive one-site selective excitation NMR experiments by N simultaneous N-site excitations with phases of component pulses varied according to the N x N Hadamard matrix offers a sensitivity improvement of the order of root N (for N = 2, 4, 8,..,) [R. Freeman, Spin Choreography, pp. 177-183. Spektrum, Oxford (1996)]. Here this principle was extended to one-dimensional (1D) H-1 TOCSY experiments, in the absence and presence of heteronuclear decoupling, The 1D H-1 Hadamard TOCSY technique was applied to selected oligosaccharides, representing a class of biomolecules for which multiple 1D TOCSY experiments are the mainstay in H-1 NMR spectral assignment and structural characterization.
