Description

Dear student,

This 12h material is the first part of the "ORGANIC CHEMISTRY DEMYSTIFIED" course.

This course was undertaken to give you a clear view of organic chemistry through detailed examples and provides numerous problems with their solution.

You can use this course as a review for taking exams or as a vehicle for self-instruction.

My primary goal is to help you focus on understanding basics and concepts of organic chemistry rather than memorizing.

It is my hope that this course, through its careful explanations of concepts and its use of numerous practical examples, helps you develop the necessary skills to bridge the gap between knowledge and the confidence to do well in your exams (in case you are a student) or in your professional career.

  • What makes me qualified to teach you :

I hold a chemical engineering degree from the "Ecole Nationale Supérieur de Chimie de Paris, Chimie ParisTech", one of the top tier chemical engineering schools in Europe.

I have been studying organic chemistry for 5 years and for the last 10 years I have been working as a chemical engineer in the petrochemical industry where I have been dealing with all sort of chemical topics and many of them were related to organic chemistry.

  • My Promise to You :

I am an active online teacher and I will be here for you every step of the way. If you have any questions about the course content or anything related to this topic, you can always post your questions or send me a private message. It will be my pleasure to provide assistance and answer your questions.

  • What I expect from you :

1. If you have any suggestion to help improve the quality of this material, then please let me know. I will do my best to take it into account.

2. If the course meets your expectation, then I would kindly ask you to leave a honest review in line with what you have experienced.

3. If you are interested in other topics related to chemical engineering and would like a training course on them, built the way this current course is, then please let me know.


So that you are aware, we are in the process of building the following courses :

  • General inorganic chemistry

  • Essential physics

  • IR and NMR spectroscopies

  • Crude oil refining

  • Overview of the petrochemical industry 1/2 : Steam crackers

  • Overview of the petrochemical industry 2/2 : Making polymers (PE, PP, PS, PVC)

  • Logistics of crude oil, petroleum products and chemicals : Transport and despatch

  • Storage of petroleum, chemicals and LPG

  • Oil and Gas : History, markets, pricing, economics and petroleum products

  • Distillation, absorption and stripping : Engineering basics and equipment

  • Heat transfer technologies : Process furnaces and heat exchangers

  • Rotating equipment basics 1/4 : Centrifugal pumps

  • Rotating equipment basics 2/4 : Positive displacement pumps

  • Rotating equipment basics 3/4 : Centrifugal compressors

  • Rotating equipment basics 4/4 : Reciprocating compressors

  • Valves and piping in the Oil and Gas

  • Fundamentals of process control used in industrial plants

  • Process instruments used in industrial plants

  • and much more...


Finally, I can ensure you with confidence that this course is by far the best and most complete organic chemistry course available online.

So what do you say ? ready to dive in ? Sign up today and get immediate lifetime access to over 12 hours of high quality video content, downloadable problem booklet with over 400 pages and one-on-one instructor support, all backed by 30 days 100% guarantee
