Using a methane-xenon mixture for spin exchange optical pumping, MRI of combustion was enabled. The 129Xe hyperpolarized nuclear spin state was found to sufficiently survive the complete passage through the harsh environment of the reaction zone. A velocity profile (Vz(z)) of a flame was recorded to demonstrate the feasibility of MRI velocimetry of transport processes in combustors.
