How to Interpret Proton NMR Spectra

Now that we have had an introduction to key aspects of 1H NMR spectra (chemical shift, peak area, and signal splitting), we can start to apply 1H NMR spectroscopy to elucidating the structure of unknown compounds. The following steps summarize the process: Let’s interpret the 1H NMR spectrum for a compound with the molecular formula C3H7Br. We have […]

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR Spectroscopy) – An Overview

Have you known someone who needed an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scan for a medical condition, or have you needed one yourself? Have you ever observed someone in an airport security line having their belongings wiped down with a pad which was then placed in some kind of analytical instrument? Have you wondered how scientists […]
