- Parahydrogen-induced polarization (PHIP) is a rapid and cost-effective hyperpolarization technique using transition metal-catalysed hydrogenation with parahydrogen. We examined rhodium catalysts and their kinetic studies, rarely considered in the research of current PHIP. It emerged that rhodium complexes with electron-donating bisphosphine ligands, with a dicyclohexylphosphino group, appear to be more effective than conventional rhodium catalysts.
