Solution-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is a very successful method to characterize the structure and dynamics of biomolecules in solution.[1, 2] However, resonance lines broaden significantly with increasing molecular weight, simultaneously affecting sensitivity and resolution. This broadening is due to long rotational tumbling correlation times tc, which enhance transverse relaxation.
