Elimination Reaction Data Interpretation Pay particular attention to the note at the end with respect to the submission deadline for the spreadsheet and the late penalties . There are two spectra included for each alcohol used (and the potassium t-butoxide). One is a full spectrum and one is an expanded spectrum. You need to print and analyze only the set of two spectra from your assigned alcohol (or potassium t-butoxide). In place of a normal conclusion, answer the following questions: 1. Use the table below (from a library search of the peaks found in the GC/MS spectra) to identify the peaks in the spectra from your assigned alcohol . (The peak retention times may vary slightly.) Clearly mark each peak’s identity on the full spectrum for your assigned alcohol . 2. Note that there are two peaks listed as 2-heptene; you must decide which are most likely to be the cis- and the trans- isomers. 3. Measure ( to the nearest 0.1 mm ) the height and width at half-height of the three expected peaks on the expanded spectrum for your assigned alcohol . (One of the four alkenes present is an unexpected product; refer to the experiment reaction to decide which alkene does not belong.) Note:
