This work compares several commonly used metabolite extraction solvents for their effects on the 1H-NMR metabolic profile of the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana. Perchloric acid and D2O extracts showed evidence of sucrose degradation. Mixed organic-aqueous extraction solvents had better stability but gave rise to problems due to contamination from lipid resonances. The best results were obtained performing the extraction with CD3CN/D2O followed by removal of solvent and reconstitution in D2O buffer.
