Carbon-13 and proton nuclear magnetic resonance (n.m.r.) spectra of ten chlorinated hydrocarbons, which are components of technical chlordane and one chlordane metabolite, were examined. For chlordene, dichlorochlordene, cis- and trans-nonachlor, and cis- and trans-chlordane, whose chemical structures are well-established, the relationships between the n.m.r. parameters and these structures were investigated. The results allow confirmation of proposed structures for alpha-, beta- and gamma-chlordene. A structure, corresponding to 2,4,5,5,6,7,8,8-octachloro-2,3,3a,4,5,7a-hexahydro-1,4-methano-1-H-indene, is proposed for another chlordane component, previously known only as Compound K.
