Oxygen-17 dynamic nuclear polarisation enhanced solid-state NMR spectroscopy at 18.8 T #DNPNMR


Brownbill, N.J., et al., Oxygen-17 dynamic nuclear polarisation enhanced solid-state NMR spectroscopy at 18.8 T. Chem Commun (Camb), 2017. 53(17): p. 2563-2566.


We report 17O dynamic nuclear polarisation (DNP) enhanced solid-state NMR experiments at 18.8 T. Several formulations were investigated on the Mg(OH)2 compound. A signal enhancement factor of 17 could be obtained when the solid particles were incorporated into a glassy o-terphenyl matrix doped with BDPA using the Overhauser polarisation transfer scheme whilst the cross effect mechanism enabled by TEKPol yielded a slightly lower enhancement but more time efficient data acquisition.
