Introduction To Spectroscopy Seminar (Including NMR)

by James

Do you struggle with spectroscopy problems? Have a hard time looking at all those different spectra and knowing what to do?

Here is a 1-hour video presentation that serves as an introduction to spectroscopy. It also includes my BEST TIPS for solving spectroscopy problems. It literally took dozens of hours of working with students 1-on-1 to develop the time- and sanity-saving techniques described here.

You’ll learn about:

  • The key points you need to know for IR, MS, and NMR
  • step-by-step strategy you can use to solve any spectroscopy problem
  • The simple framework that greatly simplifies solving structures with NMR

It’s split into two parts. Part 1 covers the basics of different spectroscopic techniques, and Part 2 shows how to solve specific problems. I’ve included a quick guide underneath the video if there’s a specific part you want to skip to.

I charge >$100 /hr for private tutoring,  and these techniques are not published anywhere else on my site.

To be honest, this isn’t always the most smooth or polished presentation.  But I will say this – it does present all the best methods and techniques I have developed in order to teach – in one hour – the absolute best “need to know” facets of solving spectroscopy problems.

“I found the problem solving section to be priceless! It’s great that you walked through what to look for, but more importantly, what to ignore. Specifically when dealing with IR and complicated multiplets. Definitely let us know if you post another problem solving video like this, because they really are priceless help. Thanks again!”  – Alex C.
