Saturation transfer MRI has previously been applied to study transient molecular binding using the IMMOBILISE MRI approach, yet the multiple mechanisms of magnetization transfer during such binding are still under investigation. We studied electrostatic-interaction-mediated molecular binding of small substrates (choline and arginine) to ion-exchange column media. A theoretical model using relayed NOEs to exchangeable protons in the bound substrate is proposed to quantitatively describe the saturation transfer during such binding.
