In nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), the chemical shift describes the dependence of nuclear magnetic energy levels on the electronic environment in a molecule.Spectrometric Identification of organic Compounds Silverstein, Bassler, Morrill 4th Ed. ISBN 047109700Organic Spectroscopy William Kemp 3rd Ed. ISBN 0333417674Basic <sup>1</sup>H - <sup>13</sup>C-NMR spectroscopy Metin Balei ISBN 0444518118 Chemical shifts are relevant in NMR spectroscopy techniques such as proton NMR and carbon-13 NMR.

An atomic nucleus can have a magnetic moment (nuclear spin), which gives rise to different energy levels and resonance frequencies in a magnetic field. The total magnetic field experienced by a nucleus includes local magnetic fields induced by currents of electrons in the molecular orbitals (note that electrons have a magnetic moment themselves). The electron distribution of the same type of nucleus (e.g. <sup>1</sup>H, <sup>13</sup>C, <sup>15</sup>N) usually varies according to the local geometry (binding partners, bond lengths, angles between bonds, ...), and with it the local magnetic field at each nucleus. This is reflected in the spin energy levels (and resonance frequencies). The variations of nuclear magnetic resonance frequencies of the same kind of nucleus, due to variations in the electron distribution, is called the chemical shift. The size of the...
