H-1 proton NMR spectroscopy - spectra index

C2H4Br2 BrCH2CH2Br low and high resolution 1H proton nmr spectrum of 1,2-dibromoethane analysis interpretation of chemical shifts ppm spin spin line splitting diagram H1 H-1 nmr for 1,2-dibromoethane explaining spin-spin coupling for line splitting doc brown's advanced organic chemistry revision notes

TMS is the acronym for tetramethylsilane, formula Si(CH3)4, whose protons are arbitrarily given a chemical shift of 0.0 ppm. This is the 'standard' in 1H NMR spectroscopy and all other proton resonances, called chemical shifts, are measured with respect to the TMS, and depend on the individual (electronic) chemical environment of the hydrogen atoms in an organic molecule - 1,2-dibromoethane here.

The chemical shifts quoted in ppm on the diagram of the H-1 NMR spectrum of 1,2-dibromoethane represent the peaks of the intensity of the chemical shifts of (which are often groups of split lines at high resolution) AND the relative integrated areas under the peaks gives you the ratio of protons in the different chemical environments of the 1,2-dibromoethane molecule.

Interpreting the H-1 NMR spectrum of 1,2-dibromoethane

In terms of spin-spin coupling from the possible proton magnetic orientations, for 1,2-dibromoethane I have only considered the interactions of non-equivalent protons on adjacent carbon atoms - but non here.


1,2-dibromoethane is a symmetrical molecule and the four hydrogen atoms are in an identical chemical environment.

The four hydrogen atoms are all equivalent to each other and no splitting is observed.

DO NOT think the high resolution spectrum consists of one or two triplets.
