qNMR-J/Committee for the Development of qNMR Technology in Japan


設立趣旨 / Objective

日本定量NMR研究会(qNMR -J / Committee for the Development of qNMR Technology in Japan)は,NMRを利用した定量分析法の更なる進歩と普及のために活動を行います.

定量NMR(以下,qNMR)は化学物質の絶対量を精確かつ迅速に測定できる定量分析法として報告され,これまで問題とされてきた分析値の計量トレーサビリティの欠如を根本的に解決する方法として注目されています.我が国では,標準物質の生産にqNMRが応用されるほか,日本薬局方および食品添加物公定書の標準物質(定量用標品)の純度決定法として公的に採用されています.また,日本工業規格(JIS)にはqNMR分析通則が既に収載されています.このように,qNMRは,食品,医薬品,化学品等の様々な分野への応用が開始されています. 定量分析法には迅速性だけでなく,得られた分析結果の精確さや信頼性の確保が,様々な分野で要求されています.qNMRはこの要求を解決出来る大きな可能性を秘めており,qNMRを利用した様々な手法の検討や開発が進められています. 今日qNMRを利用する方法は,定量分析法の一つとして急速に発展していますが,未だ広く一般に普及するには至っておりません.
qNMRが一般の研究者や技術者に受け入れられ,さらに様々な分野への展開が行われていくためには,qNMRに関連する実用的な技術の調和,標準化,インフラ整備,技術紹介,情報交換,見学会などの活動を通じて,活発な共同研究を継続的に行う必要があります. このような背景の下,国内外の情報入手・発信のための窓口の役目を担い,次世代の定量分析を未来につなぐための,自由で開かれた情報交流・教育活動基盤となることを目指し,本研究会を設立します.

日本定量NMR研究会(qNMR -J / Committee for the Development of qNMR Technology in Japan)はその活動を通して,様々な分野における定量分析の進歩に貢献していきます.

Committee for the Development of qNMR Technology in Japan will promote and disseminate quantitative analysis methods using NMR.

Quantitative NMR (qNMR) has been a quantitative analysis method enabling fast and accurate measurement of the absolute content of chemical substances, and is attracting attention as a way to fundamentally solve the lack of metrological traceability of analysis results that has been an issue in the past. In Japan, qNMR is utilized in the production of reference materials, and has been adopted as an official method for determining the purity of reference materials (reference standard for quantification) in the Japanese Pharmacopoeia as well as the Specifications and Standards for Food Additives. In addition, the general rules for qNMR are included in the Japanese Industrial Standards (JIS). Thus, qNMR is starting to be applied in a variety of fields, including foods, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals. A a variety of fields are demanding quantitative analysis methods that are not only fast, but also ensure the accuracy and reliability of the obtained results. qNMR has the potential to meet this demand, and the investigation and development of various methods using qNMR is in progress. These days, the applications using qNMR are improving rapidly, including the use as a quantitative analysis method, but it has not become widely spread into general use yet.
In order for qNMR to become generally accepted by researchers and technicians and be further utilized in various fields, it is necessary to continue active collaborative research, with activities like preparation of infrastructure, technique introduction, information exchanges, facility tours as well as personal networking, and the standardization and harmonization of the practical techniques related to qNMR. In these circumstances, this committee is established to fill a role as a contact point for accumulating and disseminating information both inside and outside Japan, with a goal of becoming a foundation for free and open information exchange and educational activity to support the next-generation quantitative analysis.

Through its activities, Committee for the Development of qNMR Technology in Japan will contribute to the advancement of quantitative analysis in a wide range of fields.
