Experiment 8 Discussion On plate # 4 compound numbers 521, 522, 523 and the unknown 524 were spotted. The results of our compounds were caraway (521), cloves (522), and coriander and (523). These were identified through smell, UV, Iodine, DNPH, and R f value. A helpful early sign was that all the unknown compounds were DNPH negative. This meant there were no aldehyde or ketone functional groups. This ruled out 3-phenylpropenal and 4-(1- methylethyl)benzaldehyde. For caraway, we identified it through its active known compound, 2- methyl-5(1-methylethyl)-2-cyclohexene-1-one. It exhibited a similar R f value in 90:10 hexane: ethyl acetate as caraway. Both were also UV and I 2 active and DNPH negative. Cloves was identified in a similar fashion. It was compared with its active ingredient, 2-methoxy-4-(2-propenyl)phenol. When the thin layer chromatography plates 2 and 3 were compared, the compound and the active ingredient had similar R f value. Both were iodine and UV active, and both were DNPH negative.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
