A pulse sequence is proposed for the suppression of the strong homonuclear scalar coupling in the case of AB spin systems. The theoretical treatment is presented in terms of the average Hamiltonian theory in the case of aperiodic perturbations. The zero-order and the first-order correction terms in the full average Hamiltonian are calculated. It is shown that the chemical shift interaction for one of the spins is completely refocused and the conditions in which the interactions bilinear in spin operators are efficiently suppressed are analyzed.
