We present our recent progress in the development of micro-​magic-​angle-​spinning solenoid-​based probeheads for the application in high-​resolution 1H solid-​state NMR of nanoliter sample volumes. The use of fused-​silica capillaries as sample holders results in spectra without any 1H background signal. It is possible to obtain 1H spectra of 40–80 nl samples in a few scans. We obtained high-​resolution 1H spectra employing different homonuclear decoupling sequences on powdered samples of L-alanine, the tripeptide AGG, and a single crystal of L-tyrosine · HCl. In addition, we recorded high-​resolution two-​dimensional proton-​detected 1H–13C heteronuclear correlation spectra of [U-13C3,15N]-L-alanine and AGG with natural abundant isotope distribution.
