Overhauser dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) technique can provide a dramatic increase in the signal obtained from nuclear magnetic resonance experiments owing to the magnetic spin-spin interactions between H-1 nuclei of the solvent and electrons delocalized on the asphaltene in crude petroleum or asphalt. Studies on H-1 Overhauser DNP enhancements at 1.53 mT are reported for benzene solvent medium with three different radical sources: Iran crude petroleum, MC30 liquid asphalt, and MC800 liquid asphalt for a range of radical concentrations. The results show that protons of benzene are good detectors for dipolar coupling.
