Following its well-received predecessor, this book offers an essential guide to chemists for understanding fluorine in spectroscopy. With over 1000 compounds and 100 spectra, the second edition adds new data featuring fluorine effects on nitrogen NMR, chemical shifts, and coupling constants. Explains how to successfully incorporate fluorine into target molecules and utilize fluorine substituents to structurally characterize organic compounds Includes new data on nitrogen NMR, focusing on N-15, to portray the influence of fluorine upon nitrogen NMR chemical shifts and coupling constants Expands on each chapter from the first edition with additional data and updated discussion from recent findings The flawless ordering of material covered in this stand-alone volume is such that information can be found very easily.

William R. Dolbier, Jr., is the Col. Allen R. and Margaret G. Crow Professor of Chemistry at the University of Florida. He received his BS in chemistry from Stetson University in 1961 and his PhD in organic chemistry from Cornell University in 1965. Following a postdoctoral appointment at Yale University, he joined the faculty at the University of Florida in 1966. Professor Dolbier was the recipient of the 2000 American Chemical Society (ACS) Award for Creative Work in Fluorine Chemistry, and is a past member of the Executive Committee of the Fluorine Division of the ACS.
