Abstract
In capillary electrophoresis separations coupled to NMR signal detection using small solenoidal coils, electrophoretic currents
cause substantial distortion in the NMR spectral linewidths and peak heights, distortions which cannot be fully counteracted
through shimming. The NMR spectra also have a low signal-to-noise ratio due to the small amounts of material, typically <1 nmol,
associated with such microseparations. This study proposes a two-step, signal processing method to restore spectral lines from the
