[1,1’-biphenyl]-4-carboxylic acid, however, was more clearly seen in the analysis of the NMR. The multiplicities and coupling of the 1 HNMR spectrum helped confirm the structure of the product. At hydrogen A, B, C, and D, there were integration values of 2H with A/B being doublets and C/D being doublet of doublets. This supports the coupling of the aromatic rings, which is also proven through their respective chemical shifts. Furthermore, the triplet of triplets at hydrogen e with an integration of 1H acts as the fifth magnetically nonequivalent hydrogen that confirms the reaction. Including the hydrogen from the OH, the integration values for the NMR added up to the 10 hydrogen’s present in [1,1’-biphenyl]-4-carboxylic acid. 1 Finally, the literature melting point for [1,1’-biphenyl]-4-carboxylic acid is 222-225 ° C, while the observed melting point is 227-229 ° C.  The close resemblance assesses the purity and finalizes the identity of the product as [1,1’-biphenyl]-4-carboxylic acid.  The final percent yield after recrystallization is 264%. No side products were observed in the reaction. However, due to the polarity of the carboxylic acid, the product still had methanol and water attached as shown in the NMR. Specifically, the 1 H NMR shows the methanol peak at 3.47

    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.
