Several spectroscopic techniques such as infrared spectroscopy, 1 H NMR, and melting point were utilized to characterize the product. The infrared spectrum exhibited 2 stretches at 3064.81 cm -1 and 3009.32 cm -1 and an additional stretch at 2925.11 cm -1 , indicating the presence of sp3 C-H and sp2 C-H bonds, respectively. The ketone stretch and more significantly, the C=C stretch confirms the aldol condensation occurred between the acetephenone and benzaldehyde. Interpretation of the mass

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
