Unformatted text preview: The broad peak is OH, and the sharp peaks immediately after are the hydrocarbons (The peaks are labeled on the spectra). The spectra obtained support the theory. MP amount put in amount recovered % Recovery 119 o 1 g .562g 47.2% Note: Norborneols MW is 112 whereas Norbornenes is 94. Therefore, if we got 100% yield, we would expect 1.19 grams. The MP is consistent with the MP of our expected product, Norborneol, and the % recovery is within the range of what Dr Fjetland said was normal. The data obtained supports the theory. Potential sources of error include improper scraping of the crystals after sublimation, neglecting to cool the acid-norbornene mixture, and separating the organic layer from the aqueous....
