Short summary
Quantum-rotor-induced polarization, also called the Haupt effect, is a hyperpolarization technique in NMR relying on the coupling of nuclear spin states to rotational quantum states. The classic molecule showing this effect is γ-picoline. One might assume that many other molecules carrying a methyl group might also show this effect. Here we explore, using a heuristic approach, other molecules which appear to be promising candidates.
