    Close, its C12 H19 Cl3 O8 9 chiral centres is correct - well done if you got this lol

    I'm hoping we get a large synthesis question and NMR question as these are the ones I find the most interesting

    I obviously don't know which ones you counted. But be sure to look at the side chains coming off the rings.

    This guy explains it really well:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6F__pysc74

    But if you're just having trouble putting it all together maybe it's just a case of practising trial and error? Or it could be something in your technique of tackling the question which may make it difficult for you to determine a structure. After watching this guy teach it (and there's another video about combined techniques) I love doing those 10 markers, was so gutted that they didn't come up in jan!

    EDIT: I've added some worksheets that have lots of proton and carbon NMR questions for anyone who wants to practice.
    Thank you SO MUCH for this! I love doing the questions too, and im getting better now at arranging the shapes too! I really owe you one haha ive done all those questions now

    does anyone have a resource that clearly explain NMR?

    i can't for the life of me figure this one out.
