Propylene glycol peak

Last revised by Dr Henry Knipe on 05 Apr 2020

Propylene glycol is one of the possible peaks in MR spectroscopy (MRS) and resonates at 1.13 ppm. 

Propylene glycol (1,2-propanediol) is a solvent of various intravenous drugs (e.g. phenobarbital), which is the first therapeutic choice for neonatal convulsions ref. Due to metabolic immaturity, neonates can accumulate this molecule, which can be seen in MR spectroscopy.
