Proton NMR: Assigning Peaks

No items found.

Practise predicting the number of signals in the carbon NMR spectrum of a simple organic molecule, use a table of chemical shifts to determine the expected positions of these signals on the spectrum, and deduce the number of equivalent carbons responsible for each signal.

Learning Outcomes

  • Familiarise yourself with the key components of NMR spectroscopy
  • Learn how to predict the number of signals in a spectrum
  • Understand the relationship between chemical shifts and the structure of a molecule

Concepts Principles and Theories

  • How to identify the number of proton environments in a molecule
  • How to predict the number of signals a molecule will produce 
  • How to assign the chemical shift for the different proton environments 
  • How to identify the signal ratios for the different proton environments 
  • How to determine the number of peaks each signal should split into
