2-(2-methyl-2-nitrovinyl)-furan (NVF) has recently been synthesized and the pharmaceutical industry interest in this compound has grown due to its antibacterial, fungicidal and anti-ectoparasitic activities. Therefore, the physicochemical characterization of new drug was conducted. In addition, two rapid, simple and suitable GC methods were developed for determination of NVF. Analyses were carried out with an Agilent DB-5ms capillary column (60 m × 0.25 mm i.d., 0.25 µm film thickness). The GC-FID analysis employed splitless mode of injection, oven/injector/detector temperature of 160/230/280°C and nitrogen carrier at the flow of 5.0 mL min−1. The GC-MS analysis employed splitless mode of injection, helium carrier at the flow of 1.5 mL min−1, column temperature program with 2 min at 100°C, ramp at 50°C min−1 to 260°C and injector and detector temperature of 250 and 290°tC, respectively. The MS conditions were ionization voltage, 70 eV; mass range, m/z 40–350; and ion source temperature, 200°C. The analysis time took less than 6 min. The results obtained in the validation of the methods suggest that these methods are economic, precise, accurate and linear over the range of analysis. The methods were successfully employed during the synthesis of NVF in order to ensure the quality of the raw material. <alternatives> [...] </alternatives>
