The analysis of the outcome of a reaction requires that we know the full structure of the products as well as the reactants In the 19 th and early 20 th centuries, structures were determined by synthesis and chemical degradation that related compounds to each other Physical methods now permit structures to be determined directly. We will examine: mass spectrometry (MS) infrared (IR) spectroscopy nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR) ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy (UV-VIS) Determining the Structure of an Organic Compound

Measures molecular weight Sample vaporized and subjected to bombardment by electrons that remove an electron Creates a cation radical Bonds in cation radicals begin to break (fragment) Charge to mass ratio is measured 12.1 Mass Spectrometry of Small Molecules: Magnetic-Sector Instruments

Plot mass of ions (m/z) (x-axis) versus the intensity of the signal (roughly corresponding to the number of ions) (y- axis) Tallest peak is base peak (100%) Other peaks listed as the % of that peak Peak that corresponds to the unfragmented radical cation is parent peak or molecular ion ( M + ) The Mass Spectrum

Molecular weight from the mass of the molecular ion Double-focusing instruments provide high-resolution “exact mass” 0.0001 atomic mass units – distinguishing specific atoms Example MW “72” is ambiguous: C 5 H 12 and C 4 H 8 O but: C 5 H 12 72.0939 amu exact mass C 4 H 8 O 72.0575 amu exact mass Result from fractional mass differences of atoms
