Applications of qNMR

qHNMR of Residual Solvents

Residual solvents can be simultaneously identifiied and quantified by NMR spectroscopy, usually with high sensitivity as solvents are low-molecular weight compounds. In 2005, Jones, Sharman, and Pidgeon published an excellent approach to residual solvent analysys by qNMR using an html/xml and java-based small database that allows the rapid identification of signals of all ICH-prescribed solvents. This forms the basis of rapid and reliable qHNMR quantification of even trace quantities of solvents, e.g., in pharmaceutical samples.
