Deuterated methanol (MeOD) is an organic solvent with the formula CD3OD. It is used to dissolve compounds of medium polarity. It has a density of 0.89 g/cm3 (20 oC)
The 1H-NMR spectrum of deuterated methanol comprises of two resonances: a quintuplet (e.g., 5 lines) at 3.31 ppm and a OH resonance that is usually in fast exchange with the H2O resonance at 4.8 ppm. The 13C-NMR spectrum consists of a septuplets (e.g., 7 lines) at 49.1 ppm (vs. TMS).
Cambridge Isotope Laboratories (CIL) is pleased to offer highly enriched and pure deuterated methanol for use with high-field, NMR spectroscopy These products are carefully manufactured and packaged so that the introduction of any impurity, including paramagnetic impurities, such as dissolved O2(g), into the product is minimized.
Methanol-D4 is hygroscopic and thus care should be taken to minimize contact of the solvent with atmospheric water.
