Mesoporous alumina (Al2O3) presents itself as a technologically important material due to its high surface area and catalytic properties. However, the characterization of this material remains elusive to various techniques. Using a hyperpolarization technique called dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) it was possible to study the surface of this material by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy.
