Overview

A pragmatic and accessible text advocating an ordered approach to gathering and interpreting NMR data.

The strength of NMR, particularly in the small organic molecule area, lies in the fact that it is very information rich but ironically, this very high density of information can itself cause confusion. This informal guide advocates an ordered approach to make sense of this data. The authors describe the use of NMR spectroscopy for dealing with problems of small organic molecule structural elucidation, and assist the reader to select the right experiment to interpret the results correctly. The main focus of the text is firmly rooted in problem solving strategy and interpretation; however some relevant aspects of NMR theory are discussed, as well as data acquisition and processing strategy.

Chapters include:

  • Preparing the Sample
  • Spectrum Acquisition
  • Processing
  • Interpreting Your Spectrum
  • Carbon-13 NMR Spectroscopy
  • Quantification
  • Safety
  • Software

This book contains useful information for anyone involved in using NMR as a tool for solving structural problems. It is particularly useful for chemists who have to run and look at their own NMR spectra and for anyone who has been working in small molecule NMR for a relatively short time. In addition, it will be relevant to undergraduate and post-graduate organic chemistry students and industrial organic chemists who need to interpret their own spectra.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The style is informal and the content pragmatic with minimal technical detail, making for easy reading. It differs from many other books in trying to explain how organic structures can be confirmed with routine NMR methods without distraction from underlying theory." (Chemistry World, 1 June 2011)
