A question in my exam came as follows:
How is NMR used in the determination of structure of organic compounds?
I have studied NMR spectroscopy and I know how to determine values using an NMR spectroscope. However, none of my textbooks talk about how to actually use these readings to determine the actual molecular structure of the compound that is under study. My professor has not taught this either. I was unable to find any external sources that talk about this as well.
Could someone explain the steps on how to determine the molecular structure of a compound after knowing the spectrum?
