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 derived. This book combines

  1. the subject matter of a minimal course needed to understand the major spectroscopic techniques with
  2. a carefully selected set of 181 structural problems involving the use of all the major techniques and
  3. 19 problems specifically dealing with the interpretation of spin-spin coupling in proton NMR spectra.
The problems are graded to develop and consolidate the student?s 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.

From the Back Cover:

The derivation of structural information from spectroscopic data is now an integral part of organic chemistry 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 derived.

Organic Structures for Spectra, Third Edition consists of a carefully selected set of 256 structural problems involving the use of all the major spectroscopic techniques and 20 problems that deal specifically with the interpretation of spin-spin coupling in proton NMR spectra. The problems are graded to develop and consolidate the student's undestanding of Organic Spectroscopy. The accompanying text is descriptive and explains the underlying theory at a level that is appropriate for tackling the problems. The text includes condensed tables of characteristic spectral properties covering the frequently encountered functional groups.

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 more easy problems (to build confidence and demonstrate basic principles) than in other collections. Strenuous efforts have been made to ensure that each of the structural problems has an unambiguous solution

The third edition of this popular textbook:
* has been expanded and updated to reflect the new developments in the area

* contains an additional 70 carefully chosen problems

* features NMR spectra obtaines at 200, 400 and 600 MHz and includes a selection of DEPT experiments as well as coupled 13C NMR spectra.

* includes 6 problems which are presented in the style of experimental sections of research papers and the appendix contains examples of fully worked solutions
Organic Structures from Spectra, Third Edition will prove invaluable for students of Chemistry, Pharmacy and Biochemistry taking a first course in Organic 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)
