In order to make use of the high sensitivity of an inverse editing sequence in addition to the editing capabilities of a flip-angle variation, the DEPT-HMQC (distortionless enhancement by polarization transfer-heteronuclear multiple quantum coherence) pulse sequences are combined with the incrementation of the pulse angle. llustrative results obtained by applying both 2- and 3-dimensional procedures to a cyclic hexapeptide are shown. The method of introduction of a further dimension in heteronuclear NMR spectroscopy by variation of the pulse angle is generally applicable and results in an increased dispersion according to multiplicity. For spectra of peptides and/or proteins, these spectra provide a suitable differentiation of several amino acids in different spectral planes.
