Achieving 1% NMR polarization in water in less than 1min using SABRE


Zeng, H., et al., Achieving 1% NMR polarization in water in less than 1min using SABRE. J Magn Reson, 2014. 246C(0): p. 119-121.


The development of biocompatible hyperpolarized media is a crucial step towards application of hyperpolarization in vivo. This article describes the achievement of 1% hyperpolarization of 3-amino-1,2,4-triazine protons in water using the parahydrogen induced polarization technique based on signal amplification by reversible exchange (SABRE). Polarization was achieved in less than 1min.
