About this book
For several years we have been organizing seminars and workshops on the application of modem one and two-dimensional NMR methods at the faculty of chemistry in the Ruhr-University Bochum, FRG, and elsewhere, addressing researchers and graduate students who work in the field of organic and natural products chemistry. In 1987, we wrote a workbook (StrukturaufkUirung mit modemer NMR-Spektroskopie, Steinkopff, Darmstadt, FRG, 1988) in German language based on our experience in these courses. Many of the exercises described therein have been used in such courses and some of them have been shaped by the participants to a great extent. The response of readers and discussions with colleagues from many countries encouraged us to produce an English translation in order to make the book accessible to a wider audience. Moreover, the content has been increased from 20 exercise examples in the German, to 23 in the English version. This book could not have been written in the present form without the help of a number of col leagues and, therefore, we acknowledge gratefully the generous supply of samples from and useful discussions with B. Abegaz (Addis Ababa, Ethiopia), U.H. Brinker (Bingham, New York, USA), E.
