Determine the multiplicity of indicated signals in the expected 1H NMR spectrum of the following compound.
Signal Splitting and the (n+1) Rule
The n+1 rule predicts the splitting pattern for hydrogens on the HNMR graph, where n is the number of neighboring hydrogens.
The 3 hydrogens on the left have 1 neighboring hydrogen and are therefore a doublet (1+1=2). 1 Hydrogen in the middle has 6 neighboring hydrogens and is therefore a septet (6+1=7). 2 hydrogens on the right have 3 neighboring hydrogens and are a quartet (3+1). 3 hydrogens on the right have 2 neighboring hydrogens and are a triplet (2+1=3).
