Description

Organic Structure Determination Using 2-D NMR Spectroscopy is a primary text for a course in NMR techniques, with the goal to learn to identify organic molecular structure. It presents strategies for assigning resonances to known structures and for deducing structures of unknown organic molecules based on their NMR spectra.

It contains 20 known and 20 unknown structure determination problems and features a supporting website from which instructors can download the structures of the unknowns in selected chapters, digital versions of all figures, and raw data sets for processing. Many other books describe the methods used, but none offer a large number of problems. Instructors at universities and colleges are forced to cobble together problems from a wide range of sources. The fragmentary approach to assembling course materials has a negative impact on course continuity and thus adversely impacts student retention.

This book will stand as a single source to which instructors and students can go to obtain a comprehensive compendium of NMR problems of varying difficulty.

Review quote

"I like [the book] a lot. Books that cover theory in depth AND lots of problems are (surprisingly) rare."--Steven M. Graham, St. John's University

"The abundance of problems and highly detailed glossary are especially noteworthy; the quality of the spectrum presentations is excellent [...] Overall organization works well, and the layout and other 'production values' are what one has long come to expect from [Academic Press]."--Barry Shapiro

Review Text

"I like [the book] a lot. Books that cover theory in depth AND lots of problems are (surprisingly) rare."--Steven M. Graham, St. John's University "The abundance of problems and highly detailed glossary are especially noteworthy; the quality of the spectrum presentations is excellent [...] Overall organization works well, and the layout and other 'production values' are what one has long come to expect from [Academic Press]."--Barry Shapiro

"When trying to explain two-dimensional nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, one may strive to avoid two pitfalls: getting bogged down in the mathematics behind the technique, or skipping the mathematics altogether and by default making the technique a "magic box." In his book, Simpson (MIT) has nearly done the impossible, covering two-dimensional NMR without slipping into either of those problems. Starting off with the instrumental setups and working through topics such as pulse sequences and spectral interpretation, this book gives readers all that they will need to prepare, run, and interpret a 2-D NMR experiment. This work would be useful for anyone who is currently using 2-D NMR and is a must for newcomers to the technique. Simpson provides almost 100 spectra to interpret as exercises, which make this volume an ideal teaching tool for 2-D NMR spectroscopy. Summing Up: Essential. Upper-division undergraduate through professional collections."-- S. S. Mason, Mount Union College writing CHOICE April 2009
