How
to
solve
for
the
position
of
signals/chemical
shift Chemical
shift
is
defined
as
the
position
of
a
signal
in
an
NMR
spectrum.

It
is
dependent
on
 different
influences,
such
as
the
ΔE
of
the
spin
state
energy
(which
is
controlled
by
the
 magnetic
field
at
the
nucleus),
and
electronegativity
(as
chemical
shift increases,
 electronegativity
of
atoms
near
the
proton
increases).

The
positions
of
signals
will
be
given
to
 us
on
a
test
so
IT
IS
NOT
MANDATORY
TO
MEMORIZE
THEM! The
protons
labeled
Ha
are
 equivalent
because
they
all
are
 connected
to
a
carbon
that
is
 connected
to
two
hydrogen
 atoms.

They
are
the
same
in
 every
way
possible. This
table
will
be
given
to
us
on
an
exam. Chemistry

to
solve
for
the
relative
intensity
of
signals/integration Integration
is
the
measurement
of
peak
areas
on
the
NMR
spectrum.

It
corresponds
to
the
 amount
of
energy
absorbed
or
released
by
all
nuclei
participating
in
chemical
shift
during
the
 nuclear
spin
flip
process.

It
is
used
to
determine
the
ratio
of
hydrogens
that
correspond
to
the
 signal.

It
is
proportional
to
relative
number
of
equivalent
protons. NOTE:
Integrals
do
not
always
relay
the
exact
amount
of
protons
present
within
a
molecule!
 Example:


 In
this
molecule,
there
are
three
signals,
A,
B,
and
C.

In
the
entire
structure,
one
 can
see
that
there
are
14
hydrogen
atoms.

 A
contains
9
equivalent
protons
in
its
signal B
contains
2
equivalent
protons
in
its
signal C
contains
3
equivalent
protons
in
its
signal In
order
to
determine
what
the
integral
is
for
these
three
signals,
set
the
signal
 with
the
least
amount
of
protons
as
an
integral
of
1.

In
this
case,
B
would
have
 an
integral
=
1.

The
ratio
is
then
set
to
2:1,
in
that
2
hydrogen
atoms
 corresponds
to
an
integral
that
equals
1.

This
means
that
you
multiply
the
 number
of
hydrogens
by
½.

You
can
then
apply
this
ratio
to
the
other
two
 signals. A
has
9
hydrogens,
so
its
integral
will
equal
4.5 C has
3
hydrogens,
so
its
integral
will
equal
1.5 A A A B C Chemistry

Thinkbook How
to
solve
for
the
splitting
of
signals Spin‐spin
coupling
is
determined
by
the
number
of
magnetic
fields
affecting
the
nucleus
of
a
 molecule.

This
causes
splitting
of
the
NMR
signals.

The
general
rule
for
splitting
is
the
signal
 for
a
proton
with
n
neighbors
is
split
into
n+1
lines.



 There
are
some
rules
and
restrictions
we
must
follow
when
working
with
signal
splitting: 1. Only
nonequivalent
protons
can
couple ‐ If
protons
are
equivalent,
then
they
do
not
couple 2. Protons
that
are
separated
by
three
or
more
single
bonds
usually
do
not
couple Chemistry

CD ‐ Pi
bonds
do
not
count
towards
the
bond
limit,
but
the
splitting
constant
J
(which
is
 the
spacing
between
lines
in
a
splitting
pattern)
may
be
too
small
to
see,
so
it
may
 be
there  For
purposes
of
coupling,
just
pretend
the
pi
bond
isn’t
there
[IT’S
A
FREE
 SPACER]!

To
be
safe,
add
a
+1
to
the
amount
of
bonds
counted
excluding
the
 pi
bond. ‐ Benzene
rings
count
as
one
big
free
spacer  All
protons
couple
with
each
other
because
of
resonance  J
may
be
small  Think
of
benzene
as
a
“gated
community”
– hydrogen
atoms
bonded
to
the
 benzene
ring
can
only
couple
with
other
hydrogens
bonded
to
the
benzene
 ring.

They
cannot
bond
with
other
hydrogens
present
in
the
molecule Chemistry

CD 3. Signals
for
O‐H
and
N‐H
are
usually
singlets In
this
example,
Ha
and
Hd do
not
couple
because
they
are
four
 bonds
apart
(see
red
bonds).

However,
Ha
and
Hc can
couple because
they
are
two
bonds
apart
(see
green
bonds). The
hydrogen
atoms
present
in
the
methyl
attached
to
the
benzene
 ring
cannot
couple
with
the
hydrogen
atoms
bonded
directly
to
the
 benzene
ring.

The
hydrogen
atoms
bonded
directly
to
the
ring
can
 only
bond
to
other
hydrogens
attached
to
the
ring.
