Identifying compounds through IR spectra
« on: January 16, 2013, 11:04:32 AM »
Hi, I was wondering if a kind soul could check my answers regarding these spectra.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/6cn39crjllts3bd/untitled.docx


A) phenyl group with OH and ether attached to it
B) phenyl group attached to an ester
C) phenyl group attached to methyl group and C triple bonded to CH
D) CH3-(CH2)6-C (double bonded to O) -OH
E) phenyl group bonded to NH2

Thanks in advance.  I have already done the labeling and such and just wanted to confirm.

Seems fine to me. Although I'm not sure about the 1st sure about the first one. All bands seem to be lesser than 3000 cm-1, and hence aliphatic.

Hi user5433. You may want to double check B again too. You have some peaks at ~2800 and ~2750 that support one functional group over another.

Thanks.  I realized B is h3c-benzene-aldehyde.

Also C is the other compound with the c-c triple bonds since there are no aromatic stretches.
