Natural-abundance 13C nuclear magnetic resonance spectra are reported for some simple terpenes and carotenes. The techniques involved in the assignment of the resonances to specific carbons are outlined. The potential of this nondegradative procedure for structural analysis is demonstrated for the investigation of carbon atoms in chemical and biochemical systems.
