Achieve CHROMpliance: A 3-Step Strategy for Rational Method Development
Dec 11, 2018
ACD/Labs
Chromatographers and separation scientists face increasing regulatory reporting obligations, as they are routinely required to justify each decision made in the method development process. These demands represent a new level of CHROMpliance expected of analytical laboratories in the pharmaceutical, agrochemical, food & beverage, and flavor & fragrance industries. As many chromatographic methods are still developed according to a trial-and-error process of selecting and optimizing conditions, attaining CHROMpliance is a goal that can feel unreachable for countless separation scientists.

Watch this webinar to learn how ACD/Labs' tools enable a 3-step strategy for rational method development that achieves CHROMpliance. We’ll discuss our industry-leading software solutions for method optimization, which will allow you to follow quality by design (QbD) principles through ensuring rational selection of initial method conditions, design of a method strategy, and performance of screening, optimization, and robustness experiments. Plus, see how to seamlessly incorporate rational justification of all method development decisions into project reporting!

Analysis of Fluorinated Compounds by 13C NMR: Addressing Difficulties and Providing Solutions
Oct 31, 2018
ACD/Labs
In modern organic and medicinal chemistry, fluorine is used to enhance the chemical properties of molecules in many desirable ways. When substituted for hydrogen, the increased stability of the C-F bond can delay the metabolism of the molecule and forbid peroxide formation. As well, its heightened lipophilicity has a direct positive effect on the molecule's bioavailability [1]. Consequently, it is estimated that more than 20% of commercial pharmaceutical APIs, 30% of the top 15 prescribed pharmaceuticals, and 30% of agrochemicals contain at least one fluorine atom [2,3].

The Process Chemist's Workflow
Sep 18, 2018
ACD/Labs
Pharmaceutical process development involves multi-disciplinary groups, with process chemists responsible for creating the API by the cheapest, most efficient route while ensuring product safety through effective impurity control measures. While mountains of analytical and chemical data are generated (LC/MS, HPLC, data, synthetic routes, reagents, starting materials, reaction conditions, etc.) each functional team has its own specific challenges based on their contributions to the process.

In the first webinar of this two-part series we will focus on how impurity data management software (Luminata) supports the process chemist's workflow.

Applications in MS: Meeting Modern Deformulation Challenges
Jun 19, 2018
ACD/Labs
Current deformulation scientists face MASSive exSPECtations—they are required to detect, screen, and identify unknowns with increasing efficiency despite shrinking analytical group sizes, pressure to perform more diverse activities, increased outsourcing of work, and slow, tedious, and error-prone methods. As a result analysts are left with much less time to devote to complex deformulation projects, while being expected to streamline existing analytical procedures.

Using Open Resources for Structure Dereplication
Jun 14, 2018
D. Argyropoulos (ACD/Labs)
The process of identifying known chemical structures is very important for analytical chemists that want to isolate a target compound and need to avoid wasting time and resources on characterizing previously identified analogues. This process is known as dereplication, and 13C NMR analysis represents a very effective method for identifying unknowns by providing greater identifying information than alternative approaches (HRMS, 1H NMR). View this presentation to learn how ACD/Labs tools for NMR spectrum prediction and spectral screening, combined with open NMR spectral/structural resources (PubChem, Chemspider), can ensure effective and efficient dereplication analyses.

Choosing the Right Tools for Mixture Analysis by 1D or 2D NMR
Apr 11, 2018
ACD/Labs
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.

Taking the Bias Out of NMR Structure Verification
Nov 08, 2017
D. Argyropoulos
Structure verification is a key activity that an NMR spectroscopist undertakes every day. Reliably labeling structures as “correct” or “incorrect” is not always an easy task and is often entrusted to automated systems for execution. It is not uncommon, however, that the proposed structure that the recorded dataset is to be checked against is biased by the chemist submitting it. Several recent developments have been made in an attempt to reduce this bias, like using multiple 2D spectra and employing Combined Concurrent Verification. Even with these advances, however, initial bias from the chemist may skew the proposed structure and produce a false positive result.

With Unbiased Verification this initial bias is removed, and experimental data is used to generate chemical structures using a Computer Assisted Structure Elucidation system. The entire process is seamless to setup and will produce a quality ranked list of structures that best match the spectra.

Moving Your MetID from Paper to Web
Apr 26, 2017
R. Lee
MetID scientists ultimately aim to produce an elucidated biotransformation map with full clarity of the parent compound's metabolic pathway. This information is used by discovery and development groups to understand the metabolic liabilities that can assist in directing the next steps of synthesis. Elucidation of the biotransformation map, however, is a common bottleneck since metabolite identification scientists must deal with disparate data sources and manual workflows for LC/MS data processing and interpretation.
