A GC-FID method for quantitative analysis of N,N-carbonyldiimidazole.


N,N-Carbonyldiimidazole (CDI), a common synthetic reagent used in commercial scale pharmaceutical synthesis, is known to be sensitive to hydrolysis from ambient moisture. This liability demands a simple, robust analytical method to quantitatively determine reagent quality to ensure reproducible performance in chemical reactions. This work describes a protocol for a rapid GC-FID based analysis of CDI.
