Cover: NMR Spectroscopy

As described by T. Andrew Mobley in , students investigate the second-order kinetics of the reaction between BuBr and NaI in acetone-d6 by monitoring the progress of the reaction using 1H NMR spectroscopy. This classical reaction is ideal for introducing organic students to kinetic studies, as the simple 1H spectra allow the students to “see” the reaction as it occurs.
