Certain compounds require a glassing agent to be hyperpolarized for dynamic nuclear polarization experiments. We propose here the novel use of Canadian maple syrup, a delicious, hypoallergenic, and readily available concentrated sugar solution, as an alternative to conventional glassing agents such as dimethyl sulfoxide and glycerol, and have demonstrated its utility in hyperpolarizing [13C]urea.
