Good book to learn nmr
« on: May 11, 2014, 12:17:56 AM »
Hi,
Im an undergrad looking to gain a more in depth knowledge of complex organic molecule structural determination that goes beyond the scope of the general organic chemistry book examples, where specifically I want to learn 2D nmr. Can you please recommend a book for this?

I'd recommend these:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Introduction-Organic-Spectroscopy-Chemistry-Primers/dp/0198557558
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Organic-Spectroscopy-William-Kemp/dp/033351954X
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Spectroscopic-Methods-Organic-Chemistry-Williams/dp/0077091477

I had forgotten about Kemp's book. That one is really good.

You have to take care with NMR because a lot of the books I have are so technical that they are very difficult to dip into for information on, say, interpretation of INADEQUATE.

That being said, there are no books that I have seen which give you a "walk through" guide to interpreting spectra. It is a nightmare at times going through proton, carbon, DEPT, HSQC, HMBC, and COSY data to get an unknown.

It would be nice to see a book on how to go about solving the puzzle of structure elucidation from NMR, IR and MS. It does come with practice and if you know what your product is supposed to be then you have a good stating place. On the other hand if you have a complete unknown then this is extremely difficult to get used to.

thank you for your responses, I understand that their is no cut and dry A to B to C type of structural determination and am more interested in gaining insight in 2D nmr

Timothy Clarige's 3rd edition of High Resolution NMR techniques in Organic Chemistry is a possibility.
