Quantitative <sup>1</sup>H NMR. Development and Potential of an Analytical Method: An Update

Covering the literature from mid-2004 until the end of 2011, this review continues a previous literature overview on quantitative <sup>1</sup>H NMR (qHNMR) methodology and its applications in the analysis of natural products. Among the foremost advantages of qHNMR is its accurate function with external calibration, the lack of any requirement for identical reference materials, a high precision and accuracy when properly validated, and an ability to quantitate multiple analytes simultaneously. As a result of the inclusion of over 170 new references, this updated review summarizes a wealth of detailed experiential evidence and newly developed methodology that supports qHNMR as a valuable and unbiased analytical tool for natural product and other areas of research.
