Problem Set 8
A compound contains carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen.
- Examine the proton-decoupled carbon-13 spectrum below and determine the functional group.
- The carbon-13 spectrum indicates three chemically distinct carbons in the aliphatic region. Look at the proton spectrum below to determine how these carbons are related to one another.
- Now draw structural formulas for all of the compounds that you can think of that contain all of the structural elements that you have discovered.
- Which structural isomer is most likely to be the compound?
