Organic Structures from Spectra, Fourth Edition consists of a carefully selected set of over 300 structural problems involving the use of all the major spectroscopic techniques. The problems are graded to develop and consolidate the student’s understanding of Organic Spectroscopy, with the accompanying text outlining the basic theoretical aspects of  major spectroscopic techniques at a level sufficient to tackle the problems.

Specific changes for the new edition will include

  • A significantly expanded section on 2D NMR spectroscopy focusing on COSY, NOESY and CH-Correlation
  • Incorporating new material into some tables to provide extra characteristic data for various classes of compounds
  • Additional basic information on how to solve spectroscopic problems
  • Providing new problems within the area of 10 2D NMR spectroscopy
  • More problems at the ‘simpler’ end of the range

As with previous editions, this book combines basic theory, practical advice and sensible approaches to solving spectra problems. It will therefore continue to prove invaluable to students studying organic spectroscopy across a range of disciplines.

From the Back Cover:

The derivation of structural information from spectroscopic data is now an integral part of organic chemistry courses at all Universities. A critical part of any such course is a suitable set of problems to develop the student’s understanding of how structures are determined from spectra.

Organic Structures from Spectra, FourthEditionis a carefully chosen set of more than 280 structural problems employing the major modern spectroscopic techniques, a selection of 18 problems using 2D-NMR spectroscopy, more than 20 problems specifically dealing with the interpretation of spin-spin coupling in proton NMR spectra and 8 problems based on the quantitative analysis of mixtures using proton and carbon NMR spectroscopy. All of the problems are graded to develop and consolidate the student’s understanding of organic spectroscopy. The accompanying text is descriptive and only explains the underlying theory at a level which is sufficient to tackle the problems. The text includes condensed tables of characteristic spectral properties covering the frequently encountered functional groups.

The examples themselves have been 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 more easy problems, to build confidence and demonstrate basic principles, than in other collections. 

The fourth edition of this popular textbook:

  • now incorporates a suite of new problems dealing with the analysis of 2D NMR spectra (COSY, NOESY, TOCSY and C-H Correlation spectroscopy);
  • has been expanded and updated to reflect the new developments in the area;
  • has an additional 25 carefully selected basic problems;
  • provides a set of problems dealing specifically with the quantitative analysis of mixtures using NMR spectroscopy;
  • features proton NMR spectra obtained at 200, 400 and 600 MHz and 13C NMR spectra include DEPT experiments as well as proton-coupled experiments;
  • conatins 6 problems in the style of the experimental section of a research paper and the appendix contains examples of fully worked solutions.

Organic Structures from Spectra, Fourth Edition will prove invaluable for students of Chemistry, Pharmacy and Biochemistry taking a first course in Organic Chemistry.

Review from earlier edition

"...I would definitely state that this book is the most useful aid to basic organic spectroscopy teaching in existence and I would strongly recommend every instructor in this area to use it either as a source of examples or as a class textbook."
—Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry

Review:

"...a most exciting compilation...to be recommended and will certainly become a staple of spectroscopic challenges on my shelf." (Journal of Chemical Education, Vol. 79, October 2002)
