Organic Structure Analysis is an ideal text for upper-level undergraduate and first-year graduate courses in organic spectroscopy. It provides students with the background necessary to effectively apply spectroscopic data in establishing features of molecular structure. Unique in its coverage, it is the only text that emphasizes strategies, interpretation, modern techniques, and problem solving. The text's major aim is to show how spectra can be efficiently examined in order to identify a molecule's major structural elements. Organic Structure Analysis adopts a practical approach to the subject which emphasizes building experience; the authors recognize that a combination of problem solving, access to data from models, and understanding the rules of spectral interpretation helps students to build expertise in structure determination from spectra. It outlines elements of theory, but with an emphasis on those directly relevant to spectral interpretation. The text is divided into three major sections: the first section provides extensive coverage of each of the individual methods, the second section illustrates how the strategies of organic structure analysis are actually applied in ten problems whose solutions are provided, and the third section consists of fifty unsolved problems which range from simple monofunctional compounds to complex natural products.
"The second edition of this book comes with a number of new figures, passages, and problems. Increasing the number of figures from 290 to 448 has necessarily added considerable length, weight, and, expense. It is my hope that the book has not lost any of its readability and accessibility. I firmly believe that most of the concepts needed to learn organic structure determination using nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy do not require an extensive mathematical background. It is my hope that the manner in which the material contained in this book is presented both reflects and validates this belief"--

An introduction to modern NMR spectroscopy, Fourth Edition
Author: J.W. Akitt
Publisher: CRC Press
Keeping mathematics to a minimum, this book introduces nuclear properties, nuclear screening, chemical shift, spin-spin coupling, and relaxation. It is one of the few books that provides the student with the physical background to NMR spectroscopy from the point of view of the whole of the periodic table rather than concentrating on the narrow applications of 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy. Aids to structure determination, such as decoupling, the nuclear Overhauser effect, INEPT, DEPT, and special editing, and two dimensional NMR spectroscopy are discussed in detail with examples, including the complete assignment of the 1H and 13C NMR spectra of D-amygdain. The authors examine the requirements of a modern spectrometer and the effects of pulses and discuss the effects of dynamic processes as a function of temperature or pressure on NMR spectra. The book concludes with chapters on some of the applications of NMR spectroscopy to medical and non-medical imaging techniques and solid state chemistry of both I = F1/2 and I > F1/2 nuclei. Examples and problems, mainly from the recent inorganic/organometallic chemistry literature support the text throughout. Brief answers to all the problems are provided in the text with full answers at the end of the book.
The field of nuclear magnetic resonance has experienced a number of spectacular developments during the last decade. Fourier transform methodology revolutionized signal acquisition capabilities. Superconducting magnets enhanced sensitivity and produced considerable improvement in spectral dispersion. In areas of new applicat ions, the life sciences particularly bene fited from these developments and probably saw the largest increase in usage. NMR imaging promises to offer a noninvasive alternative to X rays. High resolution is now achievable with solids, through magic angle spinning and cross polarization, so that the powers of NMR are applicable to previously intractable materials such as polymers, coal, and other geochemicals. The ease of obtaining relaxation times brought an important fourth variable, after the chemical shift, the coupling constant, and the rate constant, to the examination of structural and kinetic problems i~ all fields. Software development, particularly in the area of pulse sequences, created a host of useful tech niques, including difference decoupling and difference nuclear Overhauser effect spectra, multidimensional displays, signal enhancement (INEPT), coupling constant analysis for connectivity (INADEQUATE), and observation of specific structural classes such as only quaternary carbons. Finally, hardware development gave us access to the entire Periodic Table, to the particular advan tage of the inorganic and organometallic chemist. At the NATO Advanced Study Institute at Stirling, Scotland, the participants endeavored to examine all these advances, except imaging, from a multidisciplinary point of view.

NMR Spectroscopy of the Non-Metallic Elements Stefan Berger Philipps-Universität, Marburg, Germany Siegmar Braun Technische Hochschule Darmstadt, Germany Hans-Otto Kalinowski Justus-Liebig-Universität, Gießen, Germany In recent years, the technique of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Spectroscopy has rapidly gained in importance outside its traditional areas of proton NMR and carbon-13 NMR. In particular, it has become much more applicable to compounds containing elements such as phosphorus, nitrogen and fluorine. NMR Spectroscopy of the Non-Metallic Elements gathers together a wealth of NMR data for the most important non-metallic elements, namely nitrogen, oxygen, fluorine, phosphorus, sulphur and xenon. For each element, the data for the simpler compounds and their derivatives (both organic and inorganic) are gathered together in as complete a form as possible, and the regularities that emerge are discussed in detail in relation to structural variations. This allows the reader to interpret the structure of more complex structures. The chapters containing the NMR data for the elements are preceded by a practical introduction to the basic theory and experimental techniques of the NMR parameters, especially the chemical shift and indirect spin-spin coupling. This material will help the reader both in finding practical solutions to problems of structure determination, and in critically evaluating the spectra obtained. NMR Spectroscopy of the Non-Metallic Elements is an invaluable reference source for all laboratories where NMR is used. It will also be widely used by organic and inorganic chemists, especially those working on nitrogen, fluorine and phosphorus compounds.
