The 1H-NMR spectrum further displayed signal for methoxyl proton at I' 3.75 (s) and two overlapped doublets due to geminal protons of another methylene group at I' 3.39 (1H, d, J = 12.4 Hz) and 3.42 (1H, d, J = 12.4 Hz).

As mentioned before, the extension with sulfate gives in general rise to a downfield shift of the geminal and vicinal proton signals.
Although GSH conjugation generally represents a cell-protective process, this reaction sometimes produces cytotoxic, genotoxic, or mutagenic metabolites in the presence of several drugs, such as acetaminophen [3, 4], and industrial chemicals, such as geminal or vicinal dihaloalkanes [5, 6].
