Choosing the Right Tools for Mixture Analysis by 1D or 2D NMR

NMR Spectroscopy is one of the most robust techniques for measuring unknown compounds and elucidating their structures. While using NMR to analyze solutions of pure compounds is well understood, mixture analysis brings forth an array of difficulties. These include identifying compounds in small concentrations in the presence of others at high concentrations, extensive overlaps and, sometimes, hundreds or thousands of components. Nevertheless, mixtures are ubiquitous in all forms of chemistry, from metabolomics to food and beverage quality control, so analyzing mixtures by NMR spectroscopy is a very appealing option. The field has taken off in the last few years as people understood the potential and new software tools have appeared in the way.

Watch this 40 minute webinar to see how you can speed up your analysis of complex 1D and 2D NMR spectra of mixtures using ACD/Labs NMR analysis tools, including our industry-standard NMR prediction and processing software.

Presented By

Dimitris Argyropoulos

Dr. Dimitris Argyropoulos (NMR Business Manager) was born in London, UK and obtained his PhD from the University of Athens, Greece. After a short stint at the Military Centre for Biological Research in Athens he moved to Varian Inc., in Darmstadt, Germany as an NMR Applications Chemist. In 2007 he accepted the position of NMR Applications Laboratory Manager for the new NMR Applications Lab of Varian in Oxford, UK. He remained in Oxford after Agilent purchased Varian, with added responsibilities in the FTMS, MRI and LC-MS laboratories. Since 2015 he has been working for ACD/Labs as an Application Scientist and, for the past year, as an NMR Business Manager. Dr. Argyropoulos has extensive experience in structure determination and characterization of small molecules using NMR spectroscopy and MS, as well as NMR investigation of biomolecules and materials. He has participated in numerous conferences over the years presenting about new software and hardware techniques used for structure elucidation.

Brent Pautler

Brent G. Pautler (Application Scientist) obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Toronto where he gained valuable experience in complex mixture analysis by several spectroscopic and spectrometric methods including LC(GC)/MS, fluorescence spectroscopy, and NMR spectroscopy. Prior to his graduate work, he completed his B.Sc. in Chemistry at the University of Waterloo where he was heavily involved in a variety of research and student activities. After a brief Postdoctoral Fellowship at University of California Davis, Brent joined ACD/Labs where he is now an Application Scientist helping scientists apply ACD/Labs software to address their challenges.
