Process NMR Associates to Contribute Invited Talk and 3 Posters at the 1st Practical Applications of NMR in Industry Conference (PANIC), October 15-17, Schaumburg IL

News - Dr. John Edwards of Process NMR Associates will be presenting the following 3 posters and invited talk at the 1st Practical Applications of NMR in Industry Conference (PANIC), Schaumburg, IL, October 15-17, 2012 Invited Talk On-line Applications of 60 MHz High-Resolution NMR Systems in Industry: Direct Measurements, Chemometric Correlations, and Multiple Spectroscopy Data Fusion John C. Edwards Process NMR Associates, LLC, Danbury, CT For the past two decades high resolution 1H NMR systems combined with chemometric analyses have been utilized in refineries and chemical plants to predict the chemical and physical properties of process streams and finished products. The ability to perform these analyses with on-line NMR instrumentation has allowed tighter control and optimization of the plant to obtain margin improvement, reduced reworking of off-specification materials, and higher yields of finished products. Examples of refinery and petrochemical applications will be given along with some examples of multinuclear NMR applications utilizing 31P and 19F NMR. The permanent magnet based 1.5 Tesla NMR instruments will be described along with a description of how these compact, cryogen-free NMR systems can be utilized on the bench-top or in the fume-hood as continuous or stop-flow chemistry sensors for reaction monitoring, mixing/dilution monitoring, or…

Process NMR Associates to Present 3 Posters at SMASH NMR Conference, September 9-12, 2012

News - John Edwards of Process NMR Associates will be presenting the following 3 posters at SMASH NMR Conference, Providence RI, September 9-12, 2012. Process NMR Associates will also have a vendor table where John will be available to discuss the exciting range of high and low resolution permanent magnet NMR products available through the company and it's partners Aspect AI and Cosa-Xentaur. Poster 1 Quantitative Proton Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectrometry (1H-NMR) for Determination of Acetylated Polysaccharides, Glucose, Maltodextrin, and Isocitrate in Aloe Vera Leaf Juice John C. Edwards, Process NMR Associates, Danbury, Connecticut Aloe Vera is a botanical component that is used widely in the cosmetic, natural product, herbal supplement, and pharmaceutical industries. The widespread use of Aloe Vera has lead to the need to adequately analyze the authenticity, quality, and quantity of the various components present in this material. The qNMR method described here was developed and validated by Process NMR Associates (Danbury, CT) and is similar to an independently validated method developed by Jiao et al [1]. The method described is to be included in an upcoming Monograph on Aloe Vera published by the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia. The method can be used for the detection and quantitation…
