Spectroscopic Identification of an Unknown Compound 12/1/08 Tyler Argent Exp. 9 CH 237 Results: Discussion: There were certain factors that led to this conclusion. The IR in combination with the degrees of freedom based on the given chemical formula determined the types of bonds that exist: C-H, C=O, and C-C. Also, the C-13 NMR determined that 6 unique types of carbon exist. The proton splitting patterns solved everything else: -The 3H triplet indicated that there was a neighboring CH

Unformatted text preview: 2 group.-The 2H split into 6 peaks showing that it was surrounded by a CH 2 and CH 3 group on either side.-The 2H quintet represents two surrounding CH 2 groups.-The 3H singlet showed a C=O group being bonded and no surrounding protons.-The 2H triplet indicates the one neighboring CH 2 group as well as an adjacent Oxygen with no Hydrogens. In conclusion, the only possible choice for the compound is butyl acetate....
