C2H5Cl CH3CH2Cl C-13 nmr spectrum of chloroethane analysis of chemical shifts ppm interpretation of 13C chemical shifts ppm of ethyl chloride C13 13-C nmr doc brown's advanced organic chemistry revision notes 

TMS is the acronym for tetramethylsilane, formula Si(CH3)4, whose 13C atoms are arbitrarily given a chemical shift of 0.0 ppm. This is the 'standard' in 13C NMR spectroscopy and all other 13C resonances, called chemical shifts, are measured with respect to the TMS, and depend on the individual (electronic) chemical environment of the 13C atoms in an organic molecule - chloroethane here.

Interpreting the C-13 NMR spectrum of chloroethane

As you can see from the diagram above there are 2 different chemical shift lines in the C-13 NMR spectrum of chloroethane indicating 2 different chemical environments of the 2 carbon atoms of chloroethane.


(Note the 2 different colours indicating the 2 different chemical environments of the carbon atoms in chloroethane).

13C chemical shifts (a) to (b) on the C-13 NMR spectrum diagram for chloroethane.

Note the decreasing effect on the 13C chemical shift as the carbon atom is further from the more electronegative oxygen and nitrogen bromine chlorine atoms chloroethane.

The carbon-13 NMR spectra provides direct evidence of 2 different carbon atom environments for the 2 carbon atoms in the chloroethane molecule, deduced from the presence of 2 different 13C chemical shifts (ppm).
