Calculation of the NMR spectrum of double-bond protons in aliphatic systems

  • K. Schaumburg
  • H. J. Bernstein


A simplified subspectral method is presented to determine coupling constants and chemical shifts for the group −CH2 −CH=CH−CH2− in aliphatic compounds. Results are given for methyl esters of oleic, elaidic, erucic, and linoleic acid. These results are in agreement with more elaborate calculations.
