Organic Structure Determination Using 2-D NMR Spectroscopy
A Problem-Based Approach
- Jeffrey Simpson, Department of Chemistry, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, USA
Organic Structure Determination Using 2-D NMR Spectroscopy: A Problem-Based Approach, Second Edition, provides an introduction to the use of two-dimensional (2-D) nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy to determine organic structure. The book begins with a discussion of the NMR technique, while subsequent chapters cover instrumental considerations; data collection, processing, and plotting; chemical shifts; symmetry and topicity; through-bond effects; and through-space effects. The book also covers molecular dynamics; strategies for assigning resonances to atoms within a molecule; strategies for elucidating unknown molecular structures; simple and complex assignment problems; and simple and complex unknown problems. Each chapter includes problems that will enable readers to test their understanding of the material discussed.
This is a primary text for a course in NMR techniques, with the goal to learn to identify organic molecular structure.
