Background Theory Motivation Measurements Moving Forward

3
Label specific metabolites with 13 C 12 C isotope is not magnetically active

5
Natural abundance of 13 C is ≈ 1.11% Amount of signal is related to gyromagnetic ratio (γ) & abundance ◦ γ H = 42.58 (Mhz/T) ◦ γ 13C = 10.71 (Mhz/T) Hyperpolarization can give a factor of 10,000x more initial signal

6
Inject sample mixed with free radical Cool to 1.4 K in a High magnetic field Bombard sample with microwaves Mix with heated solution Duration: 1.5 hours Amount of Hyperpolarization decays with time (T1) Robarts DNP Hyperpolarizer

7
Spin-Spin RelaxationSpin-Lattice Relaxation T1T2

9
Effects of low magnetic fields on T1values for hyperpolarized 13 C Pyruvic Acid

10
Hyperpolarized sample transport: ◦ B o : High (DNP) -> Low -> High (MRI) What happens to the sample in transit? T1 relaxation is a characteristic of the molecule that can be measured

11
SpinmasterOxford Instruments MQC Variable magnetic field ◦ B o = 0.0-0.9 T Desktop NMR system ◦ B o = 0.55 T Both devices can measure Signal amplitude at time intervals

12
B o =0.55, 13 C enriched Pyruvic Acid Fit Equation Non-Linear Least Squares Fit
