The synthesis and characterization of a novel trityl-TEMPO biradical and the investigation of its properties as Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) polarizing agent are reported. Comparison with a structurally related monoradical (PTM–TEMPE) or mixtures of the two monoradical components reveals that the biradical has a much higher polarization efficiency and a faster polarization buildup. This offers the possibility of faster recycling further contributing to its efficiency as a polarizing agent.
