Week 6 Chem 51B - Jarvo 2. Circle the bond that will have the IR stretch at the highest frequency. Provide a brief explanation for your choice. For IR, in analogy to Hooke’s law: Frequency wavenumber 1/mass of atoms and Frequency wavenumber bond strength These are competing effects and we have to decide which one dominates. Usually mass of atoms dominates. a) O-H or O-D To compare the stretches of C-H vs C-D bonds: Mass of D approx 2*mass of H Bond strengths: C-H approx 103 kcal/mol and C-D approx 104.5 kcal/mol. Therefore, the difference in masses is much larger and that effect dominates – the C-D has
