While dynamic nuclear polarization based on photoexcited triplet electrons (triplet-DNP) has the potential to hyperpolarize nuclear spins of target substrates in the low magnetic field at room temperature, there has been no triplet-DNP system offering structural rigidity and substrate accessibility. Here, we report the first example of triplet-DNP of nanoporous metal-organic frameworks. Accommodation of a carboxylate-modified pentacene derivative in a partially deuterated ZIF-8 (D-ZIF-8) results in a clear 1H NMR signal enhancement over thermal equilibrium.
