Coupling Constant

Coupling Constant Definition:

When signal splitting occurs in NMR spectroscopy, the distance between the individual peaks of a signal.

Coupling Constant Explained:

If there is a molecule with chemically inequivalent protons that don’t have rotational activity yet are connected to the same molecule. This creates a coupling constant because of the distance between them and their energy signals that stay constant.
