2 Solving Spectroscopy Problems w do I deduce structure from spectra? ogical, orderly procedure ompare information between spectra when necessary onservative analysis: do not discard possibilities until 100% sure ocedure S gives formula ormula gives DBE se formula plus DBE to guide IR analysis of functional groups MR gives skeleton ssemble the pieces: use logic, and sometimes guess heck your work!

3 Sample Problem #1 Steps 1 and 2: Formula and DBE Mass spectrum m/z = 120 (M; 100%) Molecular mass (lowest mass isotopes) = 120 Even number of nitrogen atoms 9.8% / 1.1% = 8.9 m/z = 121 (9.8%) m/z = 122 (0.42%) Formula 120 - (9 x 12) = 12 amu for oxygen, nitrogen, and hydrogen Not enough amu for nitrogen or oxygen DBE DBE = C - (H/2) + (N/2) + 1 = 9 - (12/2) + (0/2) + 1 = 4 Formula = C 9 H 12 Four rings and/or pi bonds Possible benzene ring Nine carbon atoms No sulfur, chlorine, or bromine
