HSQC – Revealing the direct-bonded proton-carbon instrument

2D NMR experiments provide chemists with evidence to clarify and confirm resonance assignment.  Nowadays every organic chemist uses these experiments called COSY, HMBC and HSQC as routine analytics. Basically, with 2D experiments you correlate some kind of information between two 1D spectra. If we correlate two 1D spectra of the same nucleus we are dealing with homonuclear 2D NMR experiments. The most famous representative of this group is the COSY experiment (find theory here and application here).

I don’t know if you check out Compound Interest (@compoundchem) or not, but if you don’t you should probably consider remedying that IMMEDIATELY!  Pretty much every single time that I read it I have a “HMMMM, OHHHH, Cool! I had no idea!” moment.  Today, was no exception. They have interesting real world chemistry examples of …
