Abstract:

A useful and facile nuclear magnetic resonance NMR method for characterizing hydrolysates of HD 2,2- dichlorodiethyl sulfide has been developed. The method uses both H-1 and C-13 NMR to identify the major components 0.1 mole in the hydrolysate and to determine the mole ratios of these compounds in solution. This NMR method is especially useful since no sample preparation is required, and all soluble compounds, including the polar and ionic hydrolysis products of HD, are easily observed This report outlines a step-by-step procedure for characterizing HD hydrolysates using NMR spectroscopy and describes, in detail, the analysis of a typical hydrolysate sample. Interpreted H-1 and C-13 spectra and reproducibility data are included as well as a list of representative NMR parameters for compounds typically present in the hydrolysates.
