Linington, Williams, and MacMillan present 130 practice problems in organic structure determination by NMR. A comprehensive swath of techniques are utilized, including common 1D and 2D spectra, selective decoupling, and steric ROESY and NOESY spectra, while assuming that the reader has basic NMR knowledge corresponding to a sophomore organic chemistry course. The book is divided into six sections treating problems of increasing complexity, beginning with structure confirmation of simple and complex molecules, elucidation of unknown structures for simple and complex cases, determination of stereochemical configuration, and finally practice with extremely complex natural products. Each section begins with a brief introduction of the types of molecules and experiments included, learning objectives, and strategies, followed by sparely annotated problems with notes and hints generally referred to the appendices. Appendices also include selected functional group shifts, solvent shifts, and association charts of problems with functional groups and experiments. The book comes with electronic resources including original fids, an answer key, and full pdfs of the extensive spectra needed to solve section 6 natural product problems.

At a point where most introductory organic chemistry texts end, this workbook picks up the thread to lead students from basic problems to a graduated set of 120 highly complex problems. The art of organic structure determination can only be mastered through practice exercises displayed in this book. With minimal theoretical content, the workbook contains a sufficient quantity and variety of problems, developed by authors renowned in their fields, so that students will become truly proficient in organic structure determination.
