Hi, I'm looking for a theoretical explanation for the effect of long-range (proton) couplings on the signal intensity of the coupled peak. For example, we have a series of compounds in which we have two 2H 'triplets', one of which is also involved in long-range (5J) coupling - this 'triplet' is consistently shorter and broader than the other. We've confirmed the long-range coupling on moving to a higher field instrument and through a long-range COSY (COSYLR). Thanks in advance!

Could this just be that the long range coupling is not resolved, and so is just broadening the lines a bit? That would reduce the peak height.

If you integrate the two triplets, are the integrals significantly different?

Perhaps that's just it. The integrals are exactly the same for both. The finer coupling is visible once we move to the higher field instrument. - doodlebugs (Apr 14 '14 at 06:45)
