CML and Reaction Monitoring

Egon's quick follow-up on my previous post about automating the analysis of our NMR monitoring spectra is prompting me to get more specific.

Here is a file that contains the 4 and 13 minute H NMR scans after mixing veratraldehyde and 5-methylfurfurylamine in methanol-d4 (EXP046). The CML was generated using JSpecView and just appended. In lieu of a better solution I have put the time information in the title. For example, EXP046A004min and EXP046A013min. We can use VBA in Excel to start crunching numbers with that.

If there is a better way to express "4 minutes after mixing these 2 compounds" then I would like to adopt it to make our reactions as semantically rich and as universally usable as possible. Egon suggested CMLReact would be useful but we need a little help to get started on the right track.

Peter, any advice?
