Proton magic angle spinning (MAS) spectra of a model spin system, consisting of six protons, were calculated for different values of the external magnetic field and the spinning frequencies. Floquet theory was used to evaluate these spectra. The reduction of the effective homonuclear dipolar interaction for increasing spinning frequency was investigated. The influence of an increase of the external magnetic field and the spinning frequencies on the linewidths of the centerband spectra is discussed. This Floquet description of the rotating proton spin system will assist us in our calculations of the CPMAS spin dynamics of a low abundant spin interacting with a set of coupled protons.
