Abstract We have observed that certain C- and N-glucuronides prepared as intermediates for breast cancer preventives demonstrate non-first order 1H NMR spectra that are not the result of impurities or degradation but are instead due to virtual coupling in the pyran proton network. This virtual coupling shows the expected dependence on solvent and field strength and, more importantly, on the nature of the C-1 substitution. Although the hybridization of the atom bonded to C-1 may play a role, it appears that steric and/or electronic factors, which have the effect of increasing Delta(v)/J for H-3 and H-4, are critical for eliminating the spectral complexity. These observations, which appear to be fairly general, suggest that this phenomenon should be considered when addressing the purity of pharmaceutical agents containing these types of structural units.
