C-13 nmr spectrum of propanamide analysis of chemical shifts ppm interpretation of C-13 chemical shifts ppm of propionamide 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 shifts, called chemical shifts, depend on the individual (electronic) chemical environment of the 13C atoms in an organic molecule - propanamide here.

Interpreting the C-13 NMR spectrum of Propanamide

As you can see from the diagram above there are 3 different chemical shift lines in the C-13 NMR spectrum of propanamide indicating 3 different chemical environments of the carbon atoms.


Note the 3 colours indicating the 3 different chemical environment of the carbon atoms in propanamide.

Note the decreasing effect on the chemical shift as the carbon atom is further from the highly electronegative oxygen and nitrogen atoms of propanamide.

The carbon-13 NMR spectra a provides direct evidence of 3 different carbon atom environments in the propanamide molecule from 3 different chemical shifts (ppm).

Key words & phrases: Interpreting the C-13 NMR spectra of propanamide, C-13 nmr spectrum of propanamide, understanding the carbon-13 nmr spectrum of propanamide, explaining the line pattern in the high resolution C-13 nmr spectra of propanamide, revising the C-13 nmr spectrum of propanamide, ppm chemical shifts of the C-13 nmr spectrum of propanamide, how to construct the diagram of the C-13 nmr spectrum of propanamide, how to analyse the chemical shifts in the carbon-13 NMR spectrum of propanamide deducing the chemical environment of all the carbon atoms in propanamide examining the c13 nmr spectrum of  propanamide analysing the 13-c nmr spectrum of propanamide the 13-C nmr spectrum of propionamide
