The 15N, 13C, and 1H NMR spectra of twenty 1-substituted-2,4,6-trinitrobenzenes have been measured in hexadeuteriodimethyl sulphoxide. The δ(15N) chemical shifts of 2-NO2 and 6-NO2 groups are different from those of 4-NO2 group. Except for 1-(4-subst. phenoxy)derivatives, the δ(15N-4) are shifted upfield as compared with δ(15N-2,6). The assignment of signals in the 15N NMR spectra was confirmed in three cases by measurements of selectively 15N-labelled compounds.
