No sound at all after few minutes

dr akilan

not very good
~ seamus

very, very basic and not fully explained for a 12.46 minute video supposed to explain c13..

waste of money.

Mass Spectrometry

Very confusing when it comes to the interpretation of the Spectra. The difference between the parent ion and base ion is not at all clear. I would have expected more from this lesson. In fact U-Tube has some really interesting and engaging lessons on Mass Spectrometry and that too for free.
Also I would have expected more explanation on the principles of MS. The explanation by the Dr is at best vague

Works like a charm...
~ Alyssa3

I was doing poorly (for my standards) in organic chemistry until I found these videos...95 on the last quiz! Life saver.

Stereochemistry Simplified
~ John39

This is an excellent review of stereochemistry in a very concise and understandable format. I would recommend this to any teacher who would like to refresh his or her memory prior to teaching this concept.
