Abstract

Several important neurotransmitter precursors were hyperpolarized via homogeneous hydrogenation with parahydrogen. Polarization enhancement was achieved for 1H and 13C spins by several orders of magnitude compared to thermal spectra. Such large signal enhancements of these molecules could facilitate neurotransmitter studies.
