Luksusowa Vodka


This is a 2H{1H} spectrum of Luksusowa vodka. Unlike vodkas produced in the United States, which are fermented from various grains, this vodka imported from Poland, is fermented from potatoes. The spectrum is one of many obtained in an undergraduate research project using Site-Specific Natural Isotope Fractionation Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (SNIF-NMR) for the analysis of alcoholic beverages. Benzene was used as an internal standard in a concentric NMR tube. The spectra were obtained on the Bruker DRX-400 NMR at 61.4 MHz. The instrument was run unlocked and the chemical shift uncorrected.
