High-resolution Magic-Angle Spinning (HRMAS) NMR spectroscopy can be a powerful tool in facilitating to solve the chemical shift anisotropy problems and can also help in reducing the artefacts related to the presence of the superparamagnetic ferrihydrite-like mineral core of ferritin. Although we are aware that the presence of inhomogeneous size iron nanoparticles will prevent the acquisition of fine 2D resonance spectra, HRMAS DOSY experiments will be acquired to get relative information on the diffusion rate of ferritin in different media.
