Unusually large lanthanide-induced shifts are observed for proton resonances of methoxy, ethoxy and dimethylamino substituents peri to carbonyl groups of anthraquinones and naphthoquinones. Such an arrangement allows the substrate to act as a bidentate ligand and is evidently the favoured site of coordination.
