Organic Structure Analysis is an ideal text for upper-level undergraduate and first-year graduate courses in organic spectroscopy. It provides students with the background necessary to effectively apply spectroscopic data in establishing features of molecular structure. Unique in its coverage, it is the only text that emphasizes strategies, interpretation, modern techniques, and problem solving. The text's major aim is to show how spectra can be efficiently examined in order to identify a molecule's major structural elements. It focuses on four techniques which are used on a day-to-day basis by most organic chemists: nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), mass spectroscopy (MS), infrared (IR), and ultraviolet-visible (UV-VIS). Each chapter provides different perspectives on using spectroscopic data in a step-by-step process to establish structural features such as an overall carbon framework; the presence and location of functional groups; the regiochemistry and stereochemistry of substituents; and, finally, the absolute stereochemistry of chiral centers. Recent advances in NMR and MS have changed the way these components are introduced and used in organic spectroscopy courses. Unlike similar texts, this book provides ample, up-to-date coverage of the latest developments in NMR and MS techniques.
Organic Structure Analysis adopts a practical approach to the subject which emphasizes building experience; the authors recognize that a combination of problem solving, access to data from models, and understanding the rules of spectral interpretation helps students to build expertise in structure determination from spectra. It outlines elements of theory, but with an emphasis on those directly relevant to spectral interpretation. The text is divided into three major sections; the first section provides extensive coverage of each of the individual methods, the second section illustrates how the strategies of organic structure are actually applied in ten problems whose solutions are provided, and the third section consists of fifty unsolved problems which range from simple monofunctional compounds to complex natural products.

"The best, most up-to-date text of its kind--a real gem."--Bob A. Howell, Central Michigan University
"Overall, this is an excellent text for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students. To reinforce the material presented in each chapter, there are two sets of problems at the end of each chapter. The first set is directly related to the material discussed in the chapter. The second set consists of more challenging and thought-provoking problems. The text is filled with a wide array of figures, tables, and charts which will be of great benefit to chemists of all levels. In summary, this is one of the very best texts I have ever read combining these four spectroscopic methods. I would highly recommend this text for an advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate course in the application of spectroscopic methods for the determination of the structure of organic compounds."--Rickey P. Hicks, Mississippi State University, in the Journal of Natural Products
"An excellent, modern reference book of general use. Also, this book makes an excellent reference for the instruction of spectroscopic methods in organic structure determination. Overall, a timely and well done reference."--W. Fenical, University of California, San Diego
"Terrific treatment. Nice blend of theory and practice. Good problems. Chiroptical techniques a nice touch."--Richard T. Taylor, Miami University, Ohio
"Well-balanced problems/theory; the examples of how to approach the combined spectroscopic problems are particularly helpful. Of particular interest: plots of S/N ratio vs. NMR field strength and historical perspective; summary of two-dimensional NMR techniques; mass spectroscopy summary. Very up-to-date."--Kurt Rublein, Lock Haven University
"Looks like a great book! I really liked the answers as CAS numbers. Nice attention to stereochemistry aspects."--Stacy A. O'Reilly, Butler University
