Recent results of experimental spin-spin coupling constants are reviewed and their relation to ab initio calculations is discussed. It is shown that the NMR measurements of spin-spin coupling are density dependent in the gas phase. The extrapolation to the zerodensity limit is required in order to obtain the Jo coupling constants which are free from intermolecular interactions. Such coupling constants can be used as the experimental standards for any comparison with the results of appropriate calculations. It is also pointed out that the effects of the rotational and vibrational motion of nuclei in a molecule can be estimated completely only by theoretical methods. View Full-Text
