Abstract :

Quantitative H-2 NMR spectroscopy has been used to determine the natural abundance site-specific H-2 isotopic content of 6,7-dihydrocapsaicin (1) and capsaicin (2). Prior to analysis, the fatty acyl moieties were released as methyl 8-methylnonanoate (3) and methyl E-8-methylnon-6-enoate (4), respectively. A marked and similar nonstatisitical isotopic distribution of H-2 is observed for both fatty acids. Notably, it can be seen that :
