Self Teaching H-NMR

Because it was not taught, really, in class. I have scribbles on what was discussed but when looking back on my scribbles? It means nothing.

Three of us sat around a table, each of us had gone to friends who had gone to other friends who had... you get the picture.

Two days before the final, and I'm teaching myself NMR. Khan Academy - I hope... will help.

Yep, got it: 5H at around 7 ppm = phenyl group. Triplet next to quartet is probably a CH2-CH3... but seriously, should this not have been made MORE clear in class?

More later - I've not really slept in two days (I've showered though!! +1). Final on Weds.

Ugh...I hate NMR with a passion. I could never understand why we were expected to remember the numbers for different groups when there were TABLES of numbers that we could just consult. Seriously - why did I need to fill my brain with that stuff?

I wish I would have seen this sooner as I still have all of my reference material saved.

If you still want/need to know, I can share it with you. I believe it is from the University of Colorado if I'm not mistaken.
