If you haven't read Part 1 of this blog, please do so now.

How to Solve an 1H NMR Spectrum

1. Calculate the degrees of unsaturation (DOU).

Calculate the DOU from the molecular formula, or the number of double bonds or rings. In order to solve an NMR spectrum, a molecular formula must be provided. If not, only generalities can be determined about the structure.

Golden Rules to Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR) Analysis: Part 1

Posted by Madalee on 10/21/17 11:37 AM

Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, or NMR, is a fundamental analytical technique used by chemists to determine the structure of organic compounds. Unlike other analytical techniques, such as infrared spectroscopy or mass spectroscopy, NMR allows for the complete interpretation of molecular structure and can be quantitative.
