Quantitative nuclear magnetic resonance (qNMR) is a well-established technique in quantitative analysis. We presented a validated (1) H quantitative nuclear magnetic resonance ((1) H-qNMR) method for assay of octreotide acetate (OCT-Ac), a kind of cyclic octopeptide. Deuterium oxide was used to remove the undesired exchangeable peaks, which was referred to as proton exchange, in order to make the quantitative signals isolated in the crowded spectrum of the peptide and ensure precise quantitative analysis. Gemcitabine hydrochloride was chosen as the suitable internal standard (IS)...

The recently published CRAFT (Complete Reduction to Amplitude Frequency Table) technique converts the raw FID data (i.e., time domain data) into a table of frequencies, amplitudes, decay rate constants and phases. It offers an alternate approach to decimate time-domain data, with minimal pre-processing step. It has been shown that application of CRAFT technique to process the t1 dimension of the 2D data, significantly improved the detectable resolution by it ability to analyze without the use of ubiquitous apodization of extensively zero-filled data...

To simulate full multidimensional NMR spectra of peptides and proteins in a reasonable time frame, a strategy for separating the time-consuming full-density matrix calculations from the chemical shift prediction and calculation of coupling patterns is presented. The simulation setup uses SIMPSON to calculate TOCSY transfer amplitudes and average distances as a source for NOESY transfer amplitudes. Simulated (1) H 1D, 2D TOCSY, and 2D NOESY NMR spectra of peptides with sequence PAGYN and NFGAIL and of ubiquitin are presented...

Computer-Assisted Structure Elucidation (CASE) is comprised of two steps: 1) generation of all possible structural isomers for a given molecular formula and 2D NMR data (COSY, HSQC and HMBC), and 2) selection of the correct isomer based on empirical chemical shift predictions. This method has been very successful in solving structural problems of small organic molecules and natural products. However, CASE applications are generally limited to structural isomer problems and can sometimes be inconclusive due to insufficient accuracy of empirical shift predictions...

Fluorine ligand-based NMR spectroscopy is now an established method for performing binding screening against a macromolecular target. Typically, the transverse relaxation rate of the fluorine signals is monitored in the absence and presence of the target. However, useful structural information can sometimes be obtained from the analysis of the fluorine isotropic chemical shift. This is particularly relevant for molecule that are racemates and/or display multiple conformers. The large difference in fluorine isotropic chemical shift between free and bound state deriving mainly from the breaking and/or making of intramolecular and/or intermolecular hydrogen bonds allows the detection of very weak affinity ligands...

The major effects of nitroxides on substrates in proton spectra is well studied, while the effect on carbon spectra has received less attention. Present knowledge relies on chemical shift differences between diamagnetic and paramagnetic solutions of the substrates to propose interactions. Changes in scalar coupling constants (JCH ) would, however, provide better insight. Herein, we present a method of utilizing coupled (13) C NMR spectra where differences in (1) JCH coupling show alternate modes of association between nitroxides and test substrates...

We used (1) H pulsed field gradient (PFG) NMR to study the self-diffusion of polyethylene glycol (PEG) with average molecular mass of 200 and ions in mixtures of PEG with imidazolium bis(mandelato)borate (BMB) and imidazolium bis(oxalato)borate (BOB) ionic liquids (ILs). The ionic liquid was mixed with PEG in the concentration range of 0-100 wt%. Within the temperature range of 295 to 353 K, the diffusion coefficient of BMB is slower than that of the imidazolium cation. The diffusion coefficients of PEG, as well as the imidazolium cation and BMB anions, differ under all experimental conditions tested...

We have measured the alignment of a range of benzene derivatives in cross-linked polystyrene and poly(butyl acrylate) using a small number of residual dipolar couplings and simple geometric considerations. For apolar solutes in polystyrene and protic solutes in poly(butyl acrylate), the preferred molecular orientation does not coincide with the longest molecular axis (steric aligment). This behavior may be explained by specific π-π and hydrogen bonding interactions between solute and polymer, respectively, the latter being confirmed by molecular dynamics simulations...

The present manuscript focuses on fast and simultaneous determination of (1) H-(1) H and (1) H-(19) F scalar couplings in fluorinated complex steroid molecules. Incorporation of broadband PSYCHE homonuclear decoupling in the indirect dimension of zero-quantum filtered diagonal experiments (F1-PSYCHE-DIAG) suppresses (1) H-(1) H scalar couplings, however it retains (1) H-(19) F scalar couplings (along F1-dimension) for the (19) F coupled protons while preserving the pure-shift nature for (1) H resonances uncoupled to (19) F...

Discrimination and quantification of chiral stereoisomers have been studied by different analytical methods and NMR has emerged as a powerful one with the advancements in pure-shift NMR methods. In the present manuscript, an al-F1F2-MHOBS-DIAG NMR method for the quantification of diastereomeric excess ratio (dr) has been proposed and demonstrated, using Hesperidin and Naringin mixtures. This method enables simultaneous quantification of dr at multiple resonances, in a single experiment, and it takes only ~10 min to record...
