Carbon-13 nuclear magnetic resonance (CNMR) spectroscopy is a powerful tool for organic structure elucidation because the signals observed are directly related to the immediate surroundings of the skeletal carbon atoms. Therefore, a great deal of information directly relevant to the skeletal arrangement of the structure is accessible. Modern NMR spectrometers generate huge quantities of data rapidly, increasing the demand for tools to aid the spectroscopist in the analysis of NMR data.
