Relaxation times (T1) and methyl-methyl nuclear Overhauser effects were measured for 1H, 13C and 2H nuclei in 1,2,2,6,6-pentamethylpiperidine and its N-CHD2 analogue which was synthesized by LiAlD4 reduction of the N-CHO compound. The relaxation pathways for hydrogens of the N-CH3 group were estimated to be as follows: spin-rotation 0.046 s-1, dipole-dipole within N-methyl 0.069 s-1, and dipole-dipole with the hydrogens of the C- methyls 0.027 s-1. The 1H{1H) Overhauser effect at the N-CH3 was 7.6%.
