# Why does DMF (dimethylformamide) have 3 peaks in its 1-H spectrum?

I get that the carbons can't rotate around the nitrogen due to its partial double bond character, but how does this result in the hydrogens being in different environments? As such would this mean all non rotatable bonds would result in hydrogens all with different peaks?

• this mean all non rotatable bonds would result in hydrogens all with different peaks - they do. Alkenes for example. – bon Oct 25 '15 at 19:56
