  • Problem IR.15.
    1. Identify at least three important peaks/bonds in each of the following IR spectra.
    2. Identify the functional group present in each of these samples. See the Functional Group Section for help.
    3. Draw a possible structure for each of these compounds (there may be many, many correct answers).

    Problem IR.16.

    Sketch an approximate IR spectrum for each of the following compounds:

    Problem IR.17.

    The oop bends are sometimes useful in distinguishing substitution pattrens around a benzene ring. Using the spectra of o-, m-, and p-xylene, formulate some guidelines about what the oop bends look like when substituents are one, two or three carbons away on a benzene ring.
