Ideal for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in organic spectroscopy, this book provides the analytical skills and methodologies needed to assign nuclear magnetic resonances to known and unknown molecular structures. Part I covers the essential knowledge—along with worked examples—synthetic organic chemists should possess to understand and apply NMR in their research. Part II presents a comprehensive selection of 40 problems (20 knowns and 20 unknowns), consisting of 1H and 13C 1-D spectra plus multiple 2-D spectra.

While most books on the subject focus on mathematically rigorous treatments, this text balances rigor with guidance, providing novice and experienced chemists with the tools needed to understand and interpret 2-D NMR spectra.
· Optimizes workflow by presenting strategies for assigning resonances to known structures and for deducing structures of unknown organic molecules based on their NMR spectra
· Improves analytical and interpretation skills through the use of extensive examples and problem-solving techniques
· Enhances understanding through detailed explanations of key concepts, including an extensive glossary

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I like [the book] a lot. Books that cover theory in depth AND lots of problems are (surprisingly) rare."—Steven M. Graham, St. John's University

"The abundance of problems and highly detailed glossary are especially noteworthy; the quality of the spectrum presentations is excellent [...] Overall organization works well, and the layout and other 'production values' are what one has long come to expect from [Academic Press]."—Barry Shapiro
