1H[edit | edit source]

1H, also known as proton, is the most abundant isotope of hydrogen. It consists of a single proton and no neutrons, giving it a mass number of 1. The nucleus of 1H is the simplest and most commonly studied nucleus in nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy.


Properties[edit | edit source]

1H has a spin of 1/2, which means it can exist in two energy states when placed in a magnetic field. This property is crucial for its application in NMR spectroscopy. When subjected to a strong magnetic field, the protons align either parallel or antiparallel to the field. By applying radiofrequency pulses, the protons can be excited to a higher energy state, and upon relaxation, they emit electromagnetic radiation at a characteristic frequency. This emitted radiation is detected and used to generate an NMR spectrum.

Applications[edit | edit source]

1H NMR spectroscopy is widely used in various fields, including chemistry, biochemistry, and medicine. It provides valuable information about the structure, dynamics, and interactions of molecules. By analyzing the peaks in an NMR spectrum, scientists can determine the chemical environment, connectivity, and relative abundance of different protons in a molecule. This information is crucial for elucidating molecular structures, identifying compounds, and studying chemical reactions.

This template is designed for creating infoboxes for isotopes on a MediaWiki site similar to Wikipedia. It includes fields for general information about the isotope, such as symbol, atomic number, atomic mass, number of neutrons and protons, as well as specific nuclide data like half-life, decay mode, daughter isotopes, spin, excess energy, and binding energy. Additionally, it allows for the inclusion of appearance, uses, natural abundance, related isotopes, and other relevant information. The template also includes a stub notice encouraging users to expand the article, linking to the concept of a stub on the hypothetical WikiMD.

  • These templates provide standardized formatting and allow for easy navigation and understanding of the content.
