Experiments in nuclear magnetic resonance


Bromberg, J. Philip (1959) Experiments in nuclear magnetic resonance. Master's thesis, California Institute of Technology.


I. Proton and cobalt resonances were observed in single crystals of Co(NH_2CH_2CH_2NH_2)_3Cl_3 ^3H_2_O. The cobalt spectrum consists of a maximum of seven lines whose separation follows a (3cos^2θ – 1) dependence quite closely where θ is the angle between the c-axis of the crystal and H_o. The spectrum is fully explained on the basis of quadrupole interaction. Two sets of doublets were found for the proton resonances; an inner, very narrow set following a dependence similar to the cobalt resonance, and a pair of outer broad peaks which overlap the sharp peaks. The narrowness of the central peaks is attributed to internal rotation of one of the proton bearing groups. II. A summary is given of various high resolution spectra of compounds related to phosphine.
