Interpreting Infrared Spectra | MCC Organic Chemistry

I wish I had a better answer for you. I was completely lost at lecture on IR but after reading this, i realized its simple things made difficult. You saved me a failure.

Thanks for the wonderful lecture, my question is how can one identify aromatic or the benzene ring absorption. Please I also need your email address. Look for the C-H bond stretch below cm It is not specific for the aromatic ring but at least points to an sp2 hybridized carbon bonded to H. Your email address will not be published.

IR is a tool with a very specific use. When confronted with a new IR spectrum, prioritize your time by asking two important questions: Is there a broad, rounded peak in the region around cm -1?

It makes no sense to look for OH groups if you have no oxygens in your molecular formula, or likewise the presence of an amine if the formula lacks nitrogen. Benzoic acid , Pentanoic acid , Acetic acid The difference in appearance between the OH of an alcohol and that of a carboxylic acid is usually diagnostic. The Distinctive Triple Bond Region around cm -1 Molecules with triple bonds appear relatively infrequently in the grand scheme of things, but when they do, they do have a distinctive trace in the IR.

O-H around cm -1 important! What do we see? Here are the two big things to note: OH present around cm No strong peak around cm Amines and Amides Amines and amides also have N-H stretches which show up in this region. Chiral Allenes And Chiral Axes. Polar Aprotic? Are Acids! What Holds The Nucleus Together? Thank you so much for this guide! Very thorough approach and great explanation.

Put a lot of work into it! This is very clear and understandable even to a layman. Thanks a lot. Thanks for such a great focused article. I completely agree with the above posts. You should Youtube as well my friend.

Great job! Beautifully explained Sir!! Waiting for your next post :.

Best explanation ever! The only one I understood.. Thank you a lot! Leave a Reply Your email address will not be published. The fragmentation pattern of the spectra beside the determination of the molar weight of an unknown compound also suitable to give structural information, especially in combination with the calculation of the degree of unsaturation from the molecular formula when available. Neutral fragments frequently lost are carbon monoxide , ethylene , water , ammonia , and hydrogen sulfide.

There are several fragmentation processes, as follows.

Fragmentation arises from a homolysis processes. This cleavage results from the tendency of the unpaired electron from the radical site to pair up with an electron from another bond to an atom adjacent to the charge site, as illustrated below. In this depiction, single-electron movements are indicated by a single-headed arrow. The ionization of alkanes weakens the C-C bond, ultimately resulting in the decomposition.

Highly substituted carbocations are more stable than the nonsubstituted ones. An example is depicted as below. This reaction results from the inductive effect of the radical sites, as depicted below. This reaction is defined as a heterolytic cleavage since a pair of electrons is transferred. The same requirements for McLafferty rearrangement apply to hydrogen rearrangement to a saturated heteroatom.

Such rearrangement initiates charge-site reaction, resulting in the formation of an odd electron ion and a small neutral molecule water, or acid and so on. For alcohols, this heterolytic cleavage releases a water molecule. The same requirements for McLafferty rearrangement apply to double-hydrogen rearrangement. This reaction is observed for three unsaturated functional groups, namely thioesters, esters and amides. Such rearrangement initiates charge-site reaction, resulting in the formation of an odd electron ion and a small neutral molecule water, or HCl and so on.

This reaction can be utilized to differentiate ortho from para and meta isomersMcLafferty rearrangement apply to double-hydrogen rearrangement. This reaction occurs mainly in cyclohexene and its derivatives. Upon ionization, the pi electrons are excited and generate a charge site and a radical site. This reaction occurs mainly in four-membered cyclic molecules. Once ionized, it produces a distonic ion and then further fragments to yield an ethene radical ion and a neutral ethene molecule.

For linear alkanes, molecular ion peaks are often observed. However, for long chain compounds, the intensity of the molecular ion peaks are often weak. For example, hexane fragmentation patterns. Branched alkanes have somewhat weaker molecular ion peaks in the spectra. They tend to fragment at the branched point. Cycloalkanes have relatively intense molecular ion peaks two bonds have to break. Alkene fragmentation peaks are often most significant mode. However, for the substituted cycloalkanes, they prefer to form the cycloalkyl cations by cleavage at the branched points.

Interpreting Mass Spectra

After the ionization, double bonds can migrate easily, resulting in almost impossible determination of isomers. Allylic cleavage is most significant fragmentation mode due to resonance stabilization. McLafferty-like rearrangements are possible similar to carbonyl pi bonds. Again, bond migration is possible.

Similar to alkenes, alkynes often show strong molecular ion peak.

1st Edition

Propargylic cleavage is a most significant fragmentation mode. Aromatic hydrocarbons show distinct molecular ion peak. Another common mode of fragmentation is the McLafferty rearrangement, which requires the alkyl chain lengh to be at least longer than 3 carbons. Alcohols generally have weak molecular ion peaks due to the strong electronegativity of oxygen. The largest alkyl group will be lost. Another common fragmentation mode is dehydration M For longer chain alcohols, a McLafferty type rearrangement can produce water and ethylene M And they follow similar fragmentation pathways: Alpha cleavage and dehydration.

Phenol exhibit a strong molecular ion peak. Ethers produce slightly more intense molecular ion peaks compared to the corresponding alcohols or alkanes.
