1 Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy 1 H NMR is used to determine the type and number of H atoms in a molecule. 13 C NMR is used to determine the type of carbon atoms in the molecule. NMR uses radio waves which have long wavelengths, and thus low energy and frequency (~10 -6 kcal/mol) to excite nuclear spins .

2 When a charged particle such as a proton spins on its axis, it creates a magnetic field . Thus, the nucleus can be considered to be a tiny bar magnet. In the presence of a magnetic field B 0 the normally random ordering of the nuclei orient so that more nuclei are oriented with the applied field than against because this arrangement is lower in energy.

3 A second magnetic field can be applied to FLIP some of the nuclei spins to the higher energy state (in opposition to the first magnetic field). However, this “flipping” will only happen when the second energy source (magnetic field) matches the energy difference ( Δ E) between these two states.

4 The larger the magnetic field B 0 , the larger the energy gap.
