We have attempted to reproduce differences in low resolution nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) T2 spin–spin relaxation times between homeopathically potentised and unpotentised Nitric acid (nit-ac) solutions previously reported by Conte, et al. Using similar instrumentation and experimental protocols, we have shown that it is likely that Conte's original results are attributable to experimental artifact originating in the glassware used for the manufacture of the NMR tubes.
