    Thank you so much for this!! Its a big help to my studies!

    • Jon

      Glad to help. I hope I’ll have time and inspiration to do more in the same lines.

    Good Job Jon

    • Jon

      Thank you. Hope I’ll get to draw more often in the upcoming time.

  • Thank you!!! The explanations are so well organized and easy-to-follow :)

    Your pictorial guides are a staple of Spectro 101 at Griffith University in Australia, good work.

    I literally aced my last exam thanks to your IR guide! It made ALL the difference! Do you have a pictorial guide to Mass Spect? or can you make one and make it available before the month is over? :) I will for sure use the NMR guide!

    Hi Jon
    Could you do a visual for 13C nmr. I teach in NZ and we do carbon-13 nmr instead of hydrogen-1 nmr

    • Jon

      Hi Ray,

      I’m afraid I won’t be working on one soon. That said, the principles for 1H and 13C NMR are identical. Actually, 13C is (usually) much simpler, as the common experimental variation (proton decoupling) negates the use of integral and multiplicity, leaving only chemical shift for consideration.
