We present new non-rotor-synchronized variants of the recently introduced refocused continuous wave (rCW) heteronuclear decoupling method significantly improving the performance relative to the original rotor-synchronized variants. Under non-rotor-synchronized conditions the rCW decoupling sequences provide more efficient decoupling, are easier to setup, and prove more robust towards experimental parameters such as radio frequency (rf) field amplitude and spinning frequency. This is demonstrated through numerical simulations substantiated with experimental results under different sample spinning and rf field amplitude conditions for powder samples of U-13C-glycine and U-13C-L-histidine·HCl·H2O.
