What's the standard amount or concentration for using Cr(acac) in a Quantitative Carbon? I read 30mg per ml but that is A LOT more than appears to be in some of the doped stardards. It is VERY difficult to shim with that much in the tube. What do you generally go with?

I used to use around 6mg per 0.7mL of sample within the tube. This is around 0.025M. Using this concentration, I had no problems shimming the sample and line-broadening was barely noticeable. For my samples, the T1-times were reduced to considerably less than the half of the values you get for the case of not adding a relaxation agent.
