Simple C-13 NMR query

  1. Dec 23, 2014 #1
    In 2-aminobutane, C3 resonates at lower field (ca 33ppm) compared to C1 (ca 23ppm). Is there a simple rationale for this? The extra inductive effect from C4 should increase electron density around C3 and so shift it upfield compared to C2? Any thoughts/answers greatly appreciated.

    Steric effect between amine group and C4?
