General description

Sucrose is a disaccharide, naturally occurring carbohydrate found in plants and a major product during photosynthesis. It is used as a sweetener, preservative, antioxidant, moisture control agent, stabilizer and thickening agent in food products and beverages, as an additive in syrups, invert sugar, confectionery, preserves and jams, demulcent, pharmaceutical products, chemical intermediate for detergents, emulsifying agents, and other sucrose derivatives.


It has been used as reference standard for comparison and quantitative measurement of 1H NMR with external standards using NMR spectroscopy.

We examine the use of external standards for quantitative measurement by 1H NMR of solution concentrations of natural products and other low molecular weight, hydrogen-containing compounds and show that precision and accuracy ca. 1% is obtainable with a commercial 11.7

Outcome-specific Pavlovian-instrumental transfer (PIT) demonstrates the way that reward-related cues influence choice between instrumental actions. The nucleus accumbens shell (NAc-S) contributes critically to this effect, particularly through its output to the rostral medial ventral pallidum (VP-m). Using rats, we investigated
