While dynamic nuclear polarization using photo-excited triplet electrons (triplet-DNP) can improve the sensitivity of nuclear magnetic resonance at room temperature, it has not been carried out in water. Here, we report the first example of triplet-DNP in water by downsizing the conventional bulk crystals to nanocrystals.
