We report a G-BIRD(r) modified coupled HSQC experiment for the accurate determination of one-bond heteronuclear residual dipolar couplings. The G-BIRD(r) module has been employed to refocus the long-range coupling evolution of the heteronucleus during the t1 frequency labeling period. As a result, the crosspeaks obtained are split by only the direct one-bond coupling that can be extracted by measuring simple frequency differences between singlet maxima. Additionally the decoupling of long-range multiple bond splittings leads to considerable sensitivity enhancement. The modification also has been applied in a TROSY sequence resulting in a significant sensitivity and resolution improvement.
