Carbon is slightly different from carbon 12, the more abundant isotope of carbon, in that it has an extra neutron in its nucleus, but otherwise its chemical properties are the same. For example, the most common naturally occurring isotope of carbon c contains 6 protons and 6 neutrons. Carbon 12, the most abundant source of carbon, has an even atomic number. In humans and other eukaryotes, replication occurs in the cell nucleus. This can be signals that show very similar chemical shifts and would otherwise be difficult to distinguish. 5, this rule devolves to n+1, where n the number of equivalent neighboring hydrogen nuclei. Nmr and allows the identification of carbon atoms in an organic molecule just as proton nmr. I will just describe a few simple descriptions and explanations. Usually, isotopic labeling is applied to replace 12 c and 14 n nuclei in these molecules to nmr active c and 15 n to facility nmr study.
Carbon 12 has no magnetic moment, so there is no coupling to it. In other words, if we treat each proton as miniature bar magnet that is capable of flipping between alpha and beta states parallel and antiparallel, what is stopping the protons from reversing spin in a carbon 12 nucleus. C nmr relies on the magnetic properties of the c nuclei. Organic spectroscopic analysis infrared spectroscopy.

When an animal is alive it maintains a caron14 to carbon 12 ratio identical to that in the atmosphere. This large quadrupole moment leads to the observation of broad lines if the germanium nucleus being observed is not disposed in a symmetric environment. So how come the nucleus of carbon 12 is invisible to nmr. This is most often taught in terms of neighbouring 1 h nuclei having up and down spins, both of which lead to the nucleus of interest experiencing a slightly different magnetic field, and hence having a slightly different chemical shift.
