|Definition:||NMR spectroscopy is based on the resonance interaction between radio waves and the atomic nuclei of a substance in a magnetic field. The magnetic field induces a splitting of the spin states of the nuclei; adsorption of the radiowave energy occurs at the resonance frequency corresponding to the splitting energy. Upon emission of the energy the signal is recorded. NMR spectroscopy is most important method used for structure determination of organic and metallorganic compounds.
