The 1H spectra of twenty-one nitrate esters have been measured. These were the higher alkyl nitrates, from n-propyl to n-decyl nitrate, as well as iso-propyl and iso-butyl nitrates ethylene, tri-, tetra-, and pentamethylene dinitrates 2,2-oxydiethyl dinitrate diethylene glycol dinitrate glycerol 1,3-dinitrate 2-chlorotrimethylene dinitrate meso-1,2-dimethylethylene dinitrate and glycerol 1,2,3- and butane 1,2,4-triyl trinitrates. A complete analysis of the spectrum was not possible for any of the compounds a number, like the corresponding fluorides, give deceptively simple spectra. In others the resolution is not sufficient to allow all the NMR parameters to be evaluated. A brief discussion of the parameters which were obtained, and their use in the analysis of mixtures is given.
