Symmetry constraints on spin dynamics: Application to hyperpolarized NMR


Levitt, M.H., Symmetry constraints on spin dynamics: Application to hyperpolarized NMR. J Magn Reson, 2016. 262: p. 91-9.


Spin dynamical evolution is constrained by the symmetries of the spin Hamiltonians that generate the quantum dynamics. The consequences of symmetry-induced constraints are examined for some common hyperpolarized NMR experiments, including the excitation of singlet order in spin-pair systems, and the transfer of parahydrogen-induced hyperpolarized singlet order to magnetization in systems displaying chemical and magnetic equivalence.
