C-13 NMR Spectroscopy : Solved Problems Volume - I
In this book, theoretical explanation is not given, it emphasizes the understanding of the technique actually used in solving the problems and the concept of identifying "structural fragments" and the logic needed to produce a structure out of the structural fragments. More
The determination of structural information from spectroscopic data is an integral part of Organic Chemistry courses at all Universities. At the undergraduate level, the principal aim of such courses is to teach students to solve simple structural problems efficiently by using given data of spectroscopic techniques
This book aims to teach students how to solve the Carbon Magnetic Resonance (CMR or 13C-NMR) Spectroscopy problems when 13C-NMR data is given for the organic molecules themselves. Almost all available books, on spectroscopy describe Theory, Instrumentation and the entire basic concept regarding spectroscopy. This book confronts the student with the 13C-NMR spectroscopy examples by showing how each carbon due to its different chemical environment shows different chemical shift value and how it shows the splitting pattern. The 13C-NMR spectroscopy problem solving approach is learnt by students from this book who then solved themselves all types of 13C-NMR problems in examination by practicing a series of problems in this book.
In this book Theoretical explanation is not given, it emphasizes the understanding of the technique actually used in solving the problems and the concept of identifying "structural fragments" and the logic needed to produce a structure out of the structural fragments. It is not a conventional text book with detailed text explanation. In short this book understands quickly and giving information about chemical shift value in particular functional groups organic molecules, splitting pattern with proton/ protons. Also the book has planned the sequence of problems to demonstrate the use of new organic molecule and to test their understanding of 13C-NMR spectroscopy. Each problem is followed by sites of Unsaturation and then structure of the organic molecules with assigned chemical shift value for each proton and splitting patterns, so that if the student fails to solve a problem then they will understand the problem better. The students have to continuously self-assess through the solving problems from this book themselves by using the 13C-NMR data.
The book aims to allow students to solve or read themselves 13C-NMR data or 13C-NMR spectrum but it shouldn’t mean any less work for them. Because students discover what they don’t know, they should have more sensible questions to ask when they were solving 13C-NMR problems. The book should do the ground work and you should be able to set suitable method and discuss then profitably. The book itself has plenty of problems of this sort.
Though this book may introduce you 13C-NMR spectroscopy, its main aim is to suggest a 13C-NMR solving approach to the organic molecules. You therefore need to have a reasonable grounding in organic spectroscopy, so that you are familiar with most basic 13C-NMR spectroscopy. If you are under graduate student with no much experience of spectroscopy or limited knowledge of spectroscopy in practice you will probably be able to work straight through the book to learn the actual problem solving approach. The point of book learning is that you learn at your own pace and that you yourself check on your own progress. This book was produced principally to assemble a collection of problems that consider satisfactory for understanding the 13C-NMR problem solving approach.
