Problem: How many signals would you expect each of the following molecules to have in its 1H and 13C spectra? 

FREE Expert Solution

For this problem, we need to determine the 1H and 13C signals for each molecule:

  • Recall that for 1H-NMR analysis there are as many signals on each spectrum as there are unique, non-equivalent protons
  • In this case, let's assume that Hs bound to the same C is equivalent 
  • Take note that symmetry will reduce the total number of signals
