Hyperpolarization of 89YCl3 and three 89Y-complexes was achieved by dynamic nuclear polarization of aqueous samples. The long T1s of 89Y make its application as an NMR imaging probe extremely promising. In addition, the wide chemical shift range for various chelates of 89Y means that agents sensitive to their biological/chemical milieu could serve as exquisite sensors of important biological events.
