4-(N, N-dimethylamino)pyridine 22.47 The 1H NMR spectrum of each isomer shows peaks corresponding to ﬁve aromatic protons, so compounds A and B each contain a monosubstituted benzene ring. Only four compounds of molecular
formula C8H11N meet this requirement.

N-Methylbenzylamine N-Ethylaniline 1-Phenylethylamine 2-Phenylethylamine Neither 1H NMR spectrum is consistent with N-methylbenzylamine, which would have two
singlets due to the methyl and methylene groups. Likewise, the spectra are not consistent with
N-ethylaniline, which would exhibit the characteristic triplet–quartet pattern of an ethyl group. Although a quartet occurs in the spectrum of compound A, it corresponds to only one proton, not the
two that an ethyl group requires. The one-proton quartet in compound A arises from an H— C— CH3
unit. Compound A is 1-phenylethylamine.

how their 13C NMR spectra will differ from each other. Both will exhibit their CH3 carbons at high
ﬁeld signal, but they differ in the positions of their CH2 and quaternary carbons. A carbon bonded to Main Menu TOC Study Guide TOC Student OLC MHHE Website ...
