Unformatted text preview: Also the IR peak in the deuterated octanol around 3300cm-1 that does not exist in the regular octanol. The reasoning behind this is because in the deuterated octanol, the oxide is attached to the second carbon in the chain instead of the first. 4. Yes, it agrees with the theory introduced in the pre-lab. The accepted frequency for carbon-oxygen single bonds is between 1300-1100cm-1 . Also, the accepted frequency for a hydroxide bond is about 3400cm-1 . 5. An error could have occurred if the plates were not cleaned properly. It is necessary to evaporate the acetone wash solvent from the slat plates before adding the sample. If this is not done, the results will show the acetone carbonyl....
