Hyperpolarised Magnetic Resonance of Exchangeable Protons Using Parahydrogen and Aminosilane

Journal Contribution - Journal Article

Efficient, room temperature hyperpolarisation of exchangeable solvent protons combining parahydrogen (p-H2), ami-nopropyldiethoxymethylsilane (APDMS) and IrCl(COD)(IMES) to generate an active aminosilane-iridium complex, broadens the capabilities of SABRE-type hyperpolarisation of protons. A primary pool of hyperpolarised exchangeable protons transfers its hyperpolarisation to co-solutes with labile protons, partly overcoming the catalytic specificity of SABRE-type spin-transfer catalysis. The silane functionality of APDMS appears to be crucial to the improvement. Their role is unprecedented in p-H2-based hyperpolarisation of nuclear spins and promises to broaden applicability of ultra-sensitive solution-state NMR spectroscopy for the detection and elucidation of molecular behaviors otherwise unde-tectable at conventional sensitivity levels.
