Identification and Quantitation of Mixture Components of Formulated Products by NMR
Sergey Golotvin, Slava Pol, Patrick Wheeler, Brent Pautler, Joe DiMartino

Abstract: It is a common problem in chemistry to have mixtures for which different components require identification and quantitation. Specific cases include lubricants, drug formulation and counterfeit detection, and various consumer products and foods. Many techniques are used to address this need, depending on sample characteristics—FT-IR, Raman spectroscopy, GC-MS & LC-MS. NMR also offers a non-destructive option that is information-rich.

The analysis of NMR spectra can pose certain problems, as signals overlap in multiple ways. Interpretation becomes more difficult through manual methods as the number of components grows and overlap increases. Various capabilities have been developed over the years to assist with analysis, including database construction and query, deconvolution (peak fitting) and automated multiplet analysis. As the use of these methods has increased, it becomes necessary to create an integrated tool-box to make this sort of work more consistent, accurate, and speedy. We present here a toolset called Manual Mixture Analysis (MMA), which accomplishes these objectives in order to hasten the important work of better understanding the composition of mixtures by NMR.
