Singlet lifetime measurements in an all-proton chemically equivalent spin system by hyperpolarization and weak spin lock transfers

Author affiliations

Abstract

Hyperpolarized singlet states provide the opportunity for polarization storage over periods significantly longer than T1. Here, we show how the singlet state in a chemically equivalent proton spin system can be revealed by a weak power spin-lock. This procedure allowed the measurement of the lifetimes of the singlet state in protic solvents. The contributions of different intra- and intermolecular relaxation mechanisms to singlet lifetimes are investigated with this procedure.
