We study the von Neumann measurement on an m-dimensional quantum system. The properties of the matrices related to von Neumann measurement are investigated. It is shown that such (m2 − 1) × (m2 − 1) matrices are idempotent and have rank m− 1. These properties give rise to necessary conditions for the nullity of quantum correlations in bipartite systems. Finally, as an example we discuss quantum correlation in Bell diagonal states.
