A nuclear magnetic resonance method is presented which produces linear, isotropic proton-detected local-field spectra for I NS spin systems in powdered samples. The method, heteronuclear isotropic evolution (HETIE), refocuses the anisotropic portion of the heteronuclear dipolar coupling frequencies by evolving the system under a series of specially designed Hamiltonians and evolution pathways. The theory behind HETIE is presented along with experimental studies conducted on a powdered sample of ferrocene, demonstrating the methodology outlined in this paper. Applications of HETIE for use in structure determination in the solid state are discussed.
