The spin-1/2 plutonium-239 ($$^{239}$$Pu) nucleus should in principle be active in nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. However, its signal has eluded detection for the past fifty years. Here, we report observation of a $$^{239}$$Pu resonance from a solid sample of plutonium dioxide, PuO$$_2$$, subjected to a wide scan of external magnetic field values ($$B_0=3$$ to 8T) at a temperature of 4 Kelvin. By mapping the external field dependence of the measured resonance frequency, we determined the nuclear gyromagnetic ratio $$^{239}$$$$gamma$$$$_{rm n}$$(PuO$$_2$$)/2$$pi$$ to be 2.856 $$pm$$ 0.001 MHz/T. Assuming a free-ion value for the Pu$$^{4+}$$ hyperfine coupling constant, we estimated a bare $$^{239}$$$$gamma$$$$_{rm n}$$/2$$pi$$ value of approximately 2.29 MHz/T, corresponding to a nuclear magnetic moment of $$mu$$$$_{rm n}$$ $${approx}$$ 0.15 $$mu$$$$_{rm N}$$ (where $$mu$$$$_{rm N}$$ is the nuclear magneton).
