Benchtop qNMR evaluation

In an earlier post on qNMR we described how benchtop NMR can be used to quantify the concentration of a sample or measure its purity. When such quantitative methods are validated, there are standard requirements for accuracy, precision, range, and linearity over that range that need to be met. For example, the United States Pharmacopeia …

Quantitative benchtop NMR

Quantification using any analytical method requires calibrating an instrumental response with a known reference, and then calculating the concentration of an unknown sample from the measured instrument response. One advantage of NMR compared to other analytical methods is that the signal response is linear, resulting the NMR signal intensity being proportional to the number of …
