PhD student Andreas Boeg from Center for Hyperpolarization in Magnetic Resonance succesfully defended his PhD thesis on Chemical reactions and intermediates followed by DNP-NMR on Tuesday 9 July 2019.

Examiners at the defense were Professor Troels Skrydstrup, Aarhus University, Assistant Professor Thomas Theis, University of North Carolina, and Senior Researcher Sebastian Meier, DTU.

The defence took three hours and ended with a unanimous recommendation from the examiners' committee that the PhD degree should be conferred on Andreas Boeg.

Chairperson at the defense was Assistant Professor Søren Kramer, DTU.

Andreas' research has focused on investigating the application of dissolution Dynamic Nuclear Polarization  NMR spectroscopy on catalytic systems. Hyperpolarization by dDNP provides a factor 10,000 signal enhancement to NMR but has so far only been applied to few catalytic transformations. Andreas' thesis investigates acid-catalysed formation of solketal from glycerol and acetone, hydrogenation of olefins and the Hoveyda-Grubbs 2nd generation metathesis catalyst. 

The research project has been supported by Danish National Research Foundation as part of the HYPERMAG Center of Excellence. For more information, please visit

Supervisors were Assistant Professor Susanne Mossin, Professor Jens Ø. Duus, Professor Jan Henrik Ardenkjær-Larsen and Senior Researcher Magnus Karlsson, all from DTU.

A final version of the PhD thesis will be ready for download from DTU Orbit shortly, where Andreas' published work is already available:
