"Thank you very much!!"

"Hey George, thanks very much the thing that confuses still is the tree diagrams, the way you drew them is how my book did them and I didn't understand it that way, I have seen another way that we use in class where you would draw the singlet at the top then literally make a tree in descending order of largest J-value, I just don't know how to make those types and interpret them, here is a general example of what I mean: http://www.google.com/search?tbm=isch&hl=en&source=hp&biw=1148&bih=623&q=proton+tree+diagrams&gbv=2&oq=proton+tree+diagrams&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&gs_l=img.3...1858.4818.0.5137.20.11.0.9.0.0.88.800.11.11.0...0.0.Hudi3KbLML8"

"George, thanks very much!! Is my answer for number 1 incorrect? or am i just missing work?"

"George, Thanks as always. I actually was reading an e-mail I asked my AI about the proper method of integrating NMR data and he said as "I would in a paper" so does that follow the format you laid out? In addition do I remove my table and put in that "paragraph" form because thats I how list the characterization data for NMR sorry if this is confusing?!"

"Thanks George! I know what I'm doing I just have trouble putting it in words thats why I always ask for your input on my labs which is always helpful and appreciated. We were not taught the fingerprint region of IR spectra, so I don't need to add that because I would have no clue that para represents that area. Also the carbon-13 is decoupled thats why she always has do the singlets, doublets, triplets etc. She taught us that a methyl group is a quartet, methylene is a triplet, she taught us that the multiplicity for carbons goes off neighboring protons which seems strange to me but oh well"
