    In ion 32 the CH3 signal at 6 2.90 is observed as a doublet (J = 1.4 Hz). This is due to a coupling between the bridgehead hydrogen at C-1 (or C-5) and the CH3 group at C-4 (or C-2), and not to a coupling between the hydrogen at C-1 (or C-5) and the CH3group at C-2 (or C-4). It is substantiated by the fact that in ion 32-d4 there is no such coupling. Presumably this coupling is an anlogous to the para coupling found in the hexamethylbenzenium ion i, in which J122-01= 2 Hz. See Ref.1), Vol. II, p. 866 122-01 Google Scholar
