Molecular Structure Analysis of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients
Structure analysis of active pharmaceutical ingredients with XtaLAB Synergy-ED and JEOL MS and NMR
XtaLAB Synergy-ED is a fully optimized electron diffractometer for microcrystals analysis. The key feature of this product allows molecular structural analysis of pharmaceutical raw materials such as active pharmaceutical ingredients with powder. In addition, JEOL’s mass spectrometer (MS) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometer provide detailed information for determining the molecular structure.
Electron diffraction structure analysis of active pharmaceutical ingredient powders
XtaLAB Synergy-ED allows electron diffraction structure analysis of powder samples less than few μm without sample preparation. CrysAlisPro for ED is an instrument control and single crystal analysis software platform for 3D ED/microED experiments. This system provides researchers with a simple and effective platform for electron crystallography. The example above shows the results of electron diffraction structure analysis of active pharmaceutical ingredient powders. The measurement time required to complete the data collection is a few minutes. It is possible to use Cryo-transfer holders for heat sensitive samples and hydrate.
Structure analysis of Voriconazole powder
Structure refinement is a method of obtaining accurate atomic coordinates by using electron diffraction intensities. In the example above, this refinement is performed by the full matrix least-squares method of SHELXL. In this method, a local minimum model with incorrect, but not necessarily unrealistic geometries can be achieved during refinement (shown left). In addition, NMR analysis provides the details of Voriconazole chemical structure (shown center). An initial model of Voriconazole determined by electron diffraction structural analysis can be refined with the chemical model of NMR analysis result (shown right). The above figure is 13C with 1H and 19F decoupling and 13C with 1H decoupling NMR spectra of Voriconazole by using JNM-ECZL 500R. ROYALPROBE™ HFX enables a wide variety of advanced 1H and 19F NMR experiments with dual tune mode. It is effective to simplify spectral assignments with 13C with 1H and 19F decoupling and many unique correlation experiments for the analysis of organic compounds containing fluorine atoms, for example Voriconazole.
Structure analysis of Reserpine powder
In order to elucidate the molecular structure of Reserpine, the molecular formula is determined by using MS. In the example, the molecular formula of reserpine is provided from the Mass Spectrum by using JMS-S3000 SpiralTOF™-plus 2.0 (shown top left). In addition, NMR analysis provides details of Reserpine chemical structure (shown bottom left). The right diagram is the molecular structure of Reserpine which is refined by the chemical structure model of MS and NMR results.
