NMR Spectroscopy: Herbal Drugs and Fingerprints

  • Devi Datt Joshi
Chapter

Abstract

NMR spectroscopy is utilized for stereochemical elucidation and generates data for the atmosphere of a certain proton. Although compromised to some extent by its sensitivity, 1H-NMR is an effective technique for both metabolite fingerprinting and metabolite-profiling applications in samples of plant origin. These analyses have the potential to complement high-throughput system-wide analyses by MS and the application of coupled techniques that allow parallel MS and NMR analyses on the same sample an ideal way to increase the fraction of the metabolome. Metabolic fingerprinting in medicinally important plants is critical to establishing the quality of herbal drugs, especially using NMR and chromatographic techniques. Metabolomic profiling is on practice for new research such as drug discovery from natural resources, quality control of herbal material, and discovering lead compounds.
