    Table of peaks!
    like this: https://gyazo.com/00189d6d37f578bd4c41e126c744c875 ?

    Considering if I should do that.....

    Definitely. In that particular question that table alone would score the first 4 marks.

    Even if you're not saying 'relative peak area of 3 indicates 3 hydrogens in this environment' and 'triplet indicates 2 hydrogens on the adjacent carbon' etc. ?

    Table of peaks!

    Do u mean like this one (from the June 2015 MS)
    What colums are u doing for 13C NMR and also won't you need another column for what the relative peak area tells u like e.g. relative peak area of 3 indicates CH3

    In that particular mark scheme the first 4 marks are just for identifying the correct environments and linking them to the shift values. The fifth mark is for using either the triplet or the quartet peak to deduce that the molecule contains CH2CH3. The sixth mark is for identifying R1 as CH3, and the final mark is for the correct structure of R2.

    When I do it I usually add an extra column for 'notes', tying together the different pieces of data each peak gives you.

    For 13C NMR I usually don't bother with a table as there is no splitting patterns/relative peak area. I just annotate the spectrum (this scores marks) with the environment represented by each peak.

    isnt that playing a bit of a dangerous game? also if you do the 'notes' column do you have enough space?

    Which paper is this? I want to attempt it myself.
    No idea, at the bottom it says 2009 OCR so yeah. When you figure it out, pls let me know

    Can anyone explain the relative heights question? What's it even asking?
    Anyone know ?

    I think the height of the peak at 122 m/e would be greater as it does not contain the isotope so is more abundant? Not really sure though

    Please can someone help me with acid hydrolysis of polypeptides / polyamides? In the revision guide it says it forms, for example, a dicarboxylic acid and a diamine. However, e.g. in question 6b of June 2011, the acid hydrolysis forms -NH3+ instead of -NH2. Is there a different rule or is the textbook wrong? If this makes sense to anyone please help :'(

    it is nh3+
    and in alkaline hydrolysis u get the COO-NA+

    what do you guys think is gonna come up for the NMR imagine if they ask us to draw one- bye
    I think it'll be something we've never really seen before like an amine group, amide link or maybe it'll contain a halogen group?

    I really hope we don't have to be sketching the NMR spectrum ourselves though :/

    ive accepted that i wont be able to finish nmr correctly, every single past paper ive done i somehow manage to screw up the final structure! i just dont know how to add them together! like a puzzle 😭😭

    guys does this have any significance:

    "in the proton nmr spectrum, the peak at xx would normally be expected at a chemical ahift value about e right" what does this mean?
