Dynamic Nuclear Polarization

Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) is a phenomenon by which high spin polarization, typically derived from a bath of free radical electrons, is transferred to a nuclear spin bath, enhancing the diffe...

Monosaccharide Biosynthesis

Each monosaccharide has its own interesting metabolism. The pathway by which a monosaccharide is made, is not the reverse of its degradation pathway (see Figure 4).
