Although it is assumed that the reader has been exposed to the elementary theory of NMR and to the operation of an NMR spectrometer, a brief review of some of the basic concepts and definitions will indicate the point of view used in this book and clarify some of the definitions. The discussion is confined to the hydrogen-1 isotope because this is by far the most generally used and, consequently, far more data are available for it than for any other isotope. This wealth of data, in turn, leads to the most accurate and comprehensive set of spectra—structure correlations.
