Organic chemistry demystified : 12H course + solved problems

This 12-hour Online Courses is the first part of the Organic Chemistry Courses. This course has been undertaken to give you a clear view of organic chemistry through detailed examples and provides many problems with their solution. You can use this course as a review for taking exams or as a means of self-study. So that you are aware of this, we are in the process of building the following courses:

General inorganic chemistry
Essential physics
IR and NMR spectroscopies
Refining of crude oil
Overview of the petrochemical industry 1/2: steam crackers

Organic Chemistry: Spectroscopy Master Class

In this course, you will learn the four main spectroscopic methods covered in organic chemistry courses to you. Each method is covered in detail with substantive and practical issues for each method. I will warn you about common obstacles and mental hurdles that students normally face, and give you practical tips and tricks for solving problems! You will learn:

Generalized NMR theory via metaphor and visualization (no complex mathematics)
Mass Spectrometry (MS) (Theory and Problem Solving Methods)
How to Solve Hydrogen (1H) NMR Problems Using Practical Problem Solving Methods
How to Solve Carbon (13C) NMR Problems Using Practical Problem Solving Methods
