NMR analysis of detergent composition


Companies / Organizations


Greater Copenhagen area

Quantitative knowledge of the detergent composition is important when screening for performance boosting enzymes, since surfactants, bleaching components, etc. can negatively affect enzyme activity. We have recently investigated the use of NMR spectroscopy for the analysis of detergent compositions. However, the method is limited by the manual spectral assignment and calculations. In the suggested project, a database is constructed, consisting of NMR spectra of possible detergent ingredients. Further, with the spectrum of an unknown detergent, it should be possible to automatically search the database and calculate composition of the unknown detergent. The project contains elements of chemometric, and knowledge of IT (databases) and NMR spectroscopy will be an advantage. The student can be physically located at DTU or at Novozymes Lyngby (Innovation Campus).

Technical University of Denmark

For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted – the father of electromagnetism – who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.

Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increases and develops our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy.
