In lab we had to do tests in order to find out what our compounds are, but I have no idea where to even start. Is anyone good with this stuff?
My compound only contains H, C, and O. It is a clear liquid (basically looks like water). The boiling point is around 94° C. The refractive index is 1.38 nD. It is not soluble in water, HCl, or NaOH. It is soluble in chloroform.
I also ran NMR test and an IR spectrum. It is hard to describe the IR spectrum, but if needed I will.
The NMR had these peaks:
-Three peaks at: 4.0408, 4.0239, 4.0070
-One peak at: 2.0521
-Six peaks at (this is odd, but I asked and it can be correct, which might be a giveaway as to what my compound is?): 1.6965, 1.6778, 1.6605, 1.6422, 1.6249, 1.6067
-Three peaks at: 0.9627, 0.9441, 0.9255
Any help here? I am actually really quiet terrible in chemistry, unfortunately. Thanks.
