The ongoing success of the earlier versions of this book motivated us to prepare a new edition. While modern techniques of nuclear magnetic resonance spectr- copy and mass spectrometry have changed the ways of data acquisition and greatly extended the capabilities of these methods, the basic parameters, such as chemical shifts, coupling constants, and fragmentation pathways remain the same. However, since the amount and quality of available data has considerably increased over the years, we decided to prepare a signifcantly revised manuscript. It follows the same basic concepts, i. e., it provides a representative, albeit limited set of reference data 13 1 for the interpretation of C NMR, H NMR, IR, mass, and UV/Vis spectra. We also 19 31 added a new chapter with reference data for F and P NMR spectroscopy and, in the chapter on infrared spectroscopy, we newly refer to important Raman bands. Since operating systems of computers become outdated much faster than printed media, we decided against providing a compact disk with this new edition. The limited versions of the NMR spectra estimation programs can be downloaded from the home page of the developing company (www. upstream. ch/support/book_do- loads. html). We thank numerous colleagues who helped us in many different ways to c- plete the manuscript. We are particularly indebted to Dr. Doroth e Wegmann for her expertise with which she eliminated many errors and inconsistencies of the earlier versions. Special thanks are due to Prof.
From the Back Cover
This fourth edition of the highly successful and concise textbook contains about 20 % new data. Now included are chapters on 19 F and 31 P NMR as well as references to important Raman bands. With their unique approach of presenting - in the form of texts, tables, charts, and graphs - a succinct compilation of essential reference data for the interpretation of NMR, IR, UV/Vis, and mass spectra, the authors also provide a hands-on guide for interpreting experimental spectral data and elucidating the structure of the respective compounds behind them. Besides spectra of common solvents, calibration reagents, and MALDI and FAB MS matrix materials, fragmentation rules for mass spectrometry and UV/Vis spectra of representative compounds are included. The book will benefit students during courses and exercises, and advanced learners may use it to supplement their understanding of extended textbooks on the topic. While only a basic knowledge of spectroscopic techniques is required to use this book, it will serve as a data reference for specialists in the field and will support practitioners routinely faced with the task of interpreting spectral information. From a review of the previous edition: Practically all teachers in spectroscopy and countless students know these books and work continuously with them.
