Identifying residual solvents is important in helping students to interpret their NMR spectra and in the preparation of elemental analysis samples. I have found the NMR work of Gottlieb and Nudelman to be valuable in my research and the teaching lab. The tabular data for many residual solvents in common NMR solvents for both proton and carbon spectra has been extremely valuable. Interpreting an NMR spectrum containing a residual solvent becomes easier when the chemical shifts and multiplicity for the solvent are known. In addition, purification of such a sample can be aided by knowing the identity of the solvent and matching it to its volatility.
