    How's the chemical life?
    Your sig gif is too much :rofl:

    :rofl: cheers me up on days like today

    Care to share? I've no idea what I want to do and any career talks we get are all about forensics and what to do now the FSS has been closed

    Quick question guys.. in an IR spectrum, a peak at 1650 would that be C=O or ArC=C ??

    Little bit lot for an amide (which is the lowest of the common C=O functional groups). Could possibly be a carbonate ester/carbamate or something similar where there is lots of pi donation into the C=O pi star orbital and hence the C=O bond is weakened quite substantially. That's just a guess mind as I've never seen an IR spectrum of one of those, could be wrong. A little bit high for a C=C stretch though. Do you know what functional groups you've got in your molecule? And do you have any other peaks in that region?

    I eventually figure it out

    It was an amine, but the C=O bond was lowered due to conjugation (a bit too low, but it was the only thing that would actually fit the molecular formula!)

    Thanks though

    Hey, quick question which hopefully someone can help with, I need to work out mole fractions from a proton NMR spectra, we've been given the integrated areas under the peaks, so I assume it's using that, but we haven't actually been taught how. Thanks

    hiii all the chemists out there,
    ahh i really need hepl, has anyone come across partition coefficient? anyone know anything about partition coefficient!? rly need help!

    Hi guys!

    Quick thermo question: When dT=0, dU=0. Why is this and is there a mathematical way of proving it? Our lectures give reasons for constant volume and pressure relationships, but not constant temperature . Many thanks!

    Hi, just a few questions...

    how does the value of the enthalpy change of solution change as solubility incease?

    explain why calcium hydroxide is more soluble in water than magnesium hydroxide?

    (...) explain why calcium hydroxide is more soluble in water than magnesium hydroxide?
    Both calcium hydroxide and magnesium hydroxide are solid elements. In terms of the solubility in water, a solid element is more soluble when it has an higher temperature. Calcium hydroxide is soluble by 20 °C (I don't know at the moment what it is in Fahrenheit.) and Magnesium hydroxide is soluble by 18 °C. In related to that calcium hydroxide has a higher mass unit per volume than magnesium hydroxide - 1,7g*l^-1 compared to 9mg*l^-1. That is to say 1,7g per liter solution is soluble in water for example. Solubility increase at high mass unit per volume and decrease at low one. Do you get it?

    What did you mean with your first question. I'm sorry, but I'm not an Englishman! I didn't understand you.

    What is C3L6 an element and your problem about that? What can I do for you?

    I have no idea. I think there are not so much chemist in this forum at the moment.
    Are you interesting in chemistry? which doctrine is your favourite? Have you any paragons in chemistry and why?

    What a pitty... Is there really not a member who is VERY interesting in chemistry (not only for exams)?
    Is there not a member who want to talk about one? I'm bored...

    There's quite a few regulars here who are advanced in various areas of chemistry. They might be around.

    Right now, there's no area of chemistry of which I particularly like. I'm interested in medicinal chemistry though.
