    How do you suggest a structural formula for an NMR spectroscopy graph with peaks only?

    If you have never done it before it is quite hard!

    It is, essentially, educated guesswork.

    You use the peaks to identify environments, adjacent hydrogens, the number of unique environments etc. and using this information you can build a structure.

    After you've got a structure (I suggest drawing it out in skeletal form) you can compare it to the NMR to double check its correct.

    Perhaps start of with a few NMRs of simple alcohols and esters to build up your ability.
