Liquid phase l3C DNP experimental data were collected in a flow transfer system for different organic molecules, such as acetone, acetaldehyde, diethyl malonate, ethyl acetoacetate, diphenylmethane, and triphenylmethane. These molecules represent a wide range of functional groups with different acidities of the respective carbon-hydrogen bonds. The l3C DNP results demonstrated that the scalar dominated enhancement is sensitive to the acidity of carbon-hydrogen bonds as well as to the correlation times of the sample molecules. A hydrogen bonding spin polarization model is used, for the first time, to interpret the scalar components induced by the nitroxide free radical at the carbon sites of the acidic carbon-hydrogen bonds.
