So here I am memorizing fucking tables like an autist. How do chemfaggots justify this shitty class again?
You bloody autist! Don't memorize the tables, just memorize the patterns... Not the values, but the form of the lines.
Orgo is love, orgo is life
What patterns exactly?
I can see the simple shit like O-H, C-O, C-C bonds but those will only eliminate like one or two possibility.
He gives us 50 mins for an exam.
I had this faggot for orgo I and I learned the hard way that every fucking question and mechanism has to be muscle memory or else I'll run out of time.
Orgo is autism at the undergrad level and don't you try to justify this shit
IR is just spotting the 1720 nm, the thumbprint region, and just knowing the common locations of solvents. Yeah desu most guys end up memorizing locations. Also
It's more important to memorize shifts for NMR. Like seriously important. Like there's actual entire classes devoted to looking at these spectra.
>memorizing tables like an autist
He is giving you the molecular formula, right? Hell, even if he just gave you a molecular weight I don't see the problem, anybody should be able to competently read an IR on simple molecules like this without hardcore rote memorization....
