Short summary
An approach is described for formulating the kinetic master equations of the time evolution of hyperpolarized NMR signals in reacting (bio)chemical systems. We take a stepwise approach to formulate mathematical models of enzyme systems that agree with standard descriptions of (bio)chemical kinetics while remaining capable of describing the time evolution of magnetization described by the Bloch–McConnell equations.
