4. Signal intensitiesNext to the number of signals in an NMR spectrum and their chemical shifts, additional information about the compound in question can also be derived from the intensities of the signals.
As an example serves the spectrum of :
Above the spectrum the integral is plotted in red. The magnitude of the steps in this curve is a direct representation of the number of protons that contribute to each signal.
