  • Publication number: 20060186882
    Abstract: A multicoil NMR data acquisition apparatus and processing method for performing three-dimensional magnetic resonance imaging in a static magnetic field without the application of controlled static magnetic field gradients. A preferred application relates specifically to the detection and localization of groundwater using the Earth's magnetic field. Multicoil arrays are used in both transmit and receive modes, and coherent data processing algorithms applied to the data to generate three-dimensional NMR spin density estimates. Disclosed are methods for acquiring NMR data using an array of at least two transmit and receive coils, and for processing such multicoil data to estimate the three-dimensional NMR spin density distributions.

  • Patent number: 6946554
    Abstract: Derivatives of 9-deazaguanine of the formula I: are prepared by reacting an aldehyde or ketone of the formula II: with a dialkylaminomalonate to produce an enamine. The enamine is then reacted with a base to produce a pyrrole represented by the formula: The pyrrole is reacted with a compound represented by the formula R3OC(O)N?C(Z)NHC(O)OR3 or a derivative of carbamimidoic acid to provide a protected guanidine compound. The guanidine compound is converted to the desired deazaguanine by reaction with 1) trifluoracetic acid or 2) C1-C4 alkoxide or alkali metal or alkaline earth metal hydroxide followed by neutralization with an acid.
