A critical part of any such course is a suitable set of problems to develop the students understanding of how structures are derived. This book combinesthe subject matter of a minimal course needed to understand the major spectroscopic techniques witha carefully selected set of 181 structural problems involving the use of all the major techniques and19 problems specifically dealing with the interpretation of spin-spin coupling in proton NMR spectra.The problems are graded to develop and consolidate the students understanding of organic spectroscopy. The accompanying text indicates the level of theory required to tackle the problems. The examples themselves have been carefully selected to include all important structural features and to emphasise connectivity arguments. Many of the compounds were synthesised specifically for this purpose. There are many easier problems than in other collections. Strenuous efforts have been made to ensure that solutions to the 181 structural problems are unambiguous. The second edition of this popular and successful work has been significantly revised and updated, and contains some 70 additional carefully chosen problems. Most problems feature NMR spectra obtained at higher fields than in the first edition and DEPT experiments as well as coupled 13C NMR spectra are included. Five problems are presented in the style of experimental sections of research papers and the Appendix contains two fully worked solutions.
