Chem 334 honors Challenge Problem 2 due Tuesday Feb 14 th 9:30 am. Michael characterized an unknown compound A , with molecular formula C 4 H 8 O, using 1H NMR, see below. Compound A gave a positive Tollens test. A was reacted with Wittig reagent shown and after an aqueous workup, Michael isolated a new compound B . Hydrogenation of B in ethanol gave a new compound C , which displayed an NMR spectra shown on the next page. Draw the structures of each compound ( A-C) and explain your answer using the spectral experimental and spectroscopic clues given. A PPh 3 THF B C H 2 / Pd H 3 C Proton NMR of compound A: 0 2 4 6 8 10 PPM doublet int = 1H multiplet int. = 1 H doublet int. = 6 H 1. Assign the Structure of compound A: Analysis of 1H NMR spectra: Type of H shift (ppm) integration splitting tentative identification Proton NMR of compound B: integration numbers given.
