Interesting publication: validating benzoic acid quantitation in fruit juices


Many Mnova users are very interested in quantitation, whether of pure, single compounds or mixtures. I thought I’d bring this paper to your attention in case you also find it interesting:

Garrido B. C., and Carvalho L. J. (2014)

Nuclear magnetic resonance using electronic referencing: method validation and evaluation of the measurement uncertainties for the quantification of benzoic acid in orange juice, Magn. Reson. Chem.,


The authors look at effect of using electronic concentration references on concentration determination performance, and look at sources of uncertainty in the measurement. This is a nice, thorough validation for a method to measure components in foods – an important step before turning to your favourite software to automatically find the chemical “fingerprints” of components for analysis.
