5. The chi value recommended here for 2H was determined from the ratios of 1H and 2H signals of a water sample at 298 K as measured by Dr. Frits Abildgaard and David LeMaster at the National Magnetic Resonance Facility at Madison. This value is a surrogate for the isotopomers of DSS, and its derivation assumes that there is no primary isotope effect on the ratio.
6. The chi value recommended here for 31P is the average of values determined independently, one at the National Magnetic Resonance Facility at Madison by F. Abildgaard (40.4808651), and the other at the National Institutes of Health by A. Bax (40.480862). Measurements were made at 298 K in D2O solution containing 10% trimethylphosphate as the indirect reference and DSS as the direct reference.
