Peat, D. T., Hirsch, M. L., Gadian, D. G., Horsewill, A. J., Owers-Bradley, J. R., & Kempf, J. G. (in press). Low-field thermal mixing in [1-13C] pyruvic acid for brute-force hyperpolarization. Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics, 18(28), doi:10.1039/C6CP02853E. ISSN 1463-9076

We detail the process of low-field thermal mixing (LFTM) between 1H and 13C nuclei in neat [1-13C] pyruvic acid at cryogenic temperatures (4–15 K). Using fast-field-cycling NMR, 1H nuclei in the molecule were polarized at modest high field (2 T) and... Read More
