11-3 Additional Methods for Oxidizing Alcohols 547
In order to propose which functional groups are likely to be present in the molecule, you need to identify the reliable characteristic absorptions in an infrared spectrum.
Functional groups can't be present in a molecule because their peaks are absent from the IR spectrum.
Use a mass spectrum to determine a compound's weight and propose which elements are likely to be present.
The longer wavelength of the light is shown as warmer, brighter colors in this image of a mouse.
The determination of organic shows where the mouse loses the most structures is one of the most important tasks of organic chemistry.
When an interesting compound is isolated from a natural source, its structure heat mostly through the eyes and the tail.
Before a synthesis can begin, this mouse must be completely determined.
We must determine if the product has the desired structure when we run a reac through its tail.
To control the constriction of the blood to favor the desired product, it is necessary to know the structure of the thyroid hormonereceptor.
Chemical means can be used to identify a compound.
The formula is found by analyzing the composition and weight of the elements.
Chemical tests can suggest functional groups and narrow the range of possible structures before physical properties are used to make an identification.
These procedures are insufficient for complex compounds that have never been synthesized.
They are impractical with compounds that are hard to get because a large sample is needed to complete the analysis.
We need analytical techniques that work with small samples.
These requirements are often met by analytical techniques.
A spectrometer irradiates the sample with light, measures the amount of light transmitted as a function of wavelength, and plots the results on a graph.
A lot of different kinds of spectrum can be measured.
A mass spectrometer breaks the molecule into smaller pieces.
The mass of the fragments gives clues to the structure and functional groups.
A small amount of sample is destroyed in this analysis.
When used together, these techniques are the most powerful.
In many cases, an unknown compound cannot be completely identified from one spectrum without additional information, and the structure can be determined using two or more different types of spectrum.
In Chapter 13, we look at how clues from different types are combined to provide a reliable structure.
Some examples of radiation are visible light, microwaves, and radio waves.
They all travel at the same speed of light, but they have different frequencies and wavelength.
The energy of a photon is determined by its wavelength and Frequency.
A molecule may absorb the photon's energy under certain conditions.
The spectrum can be found from the very low radio frequencies used to communicate with submarines to the very high frequencies of the sun.
The positions of the divid ing lines between the different regions are somewhat arbitrary.
The lower frequencies, longer wavelengths, and lower energies are at the bottom.
X-rays are very high in energy and cause ionization.
Microwave energies excite rotation.
Nuclear spin transitions are excited by radio-wave frequencies.
The middle of this region has a wavelength between 2.5 to 10 cm and 25 to 10 cm, corresponding to ener gies of about 4.5 to 11 kJ>mol.
Group of atoms can vibrate with respect to the bonds that connect them, even though they don't have enough energy to cause electronic transitions.
Similar to electronic transitions, these vibrational transitions correspond to distinct energies and are only absorbed at certain frequencies.
The wavenumber is the inverse of the wavelength.
We will use wavenumbers throughout the book to specify IR absorptions.
You should know how to convert these units if they still use microns.
It is helpful to understand some theory about the energy of the molecule.
The drawing shows how a bond between two atoms works.
A restoring force pulls the two atoms together if the bond is stretched.
The restoring force pushes the two atoms apart if the bond is compressed.
The atoms vibrate if the bond is stretched or compressed.
The elasticity of the bond and the mass of the atoms affect the stretching vibration's frequencies.
More force is required to stretch or compress bonds that are stronger.
The stronger bonds vibrate faster than the weaker bonds.
The bonds vibrate at higher frequencies.
Triple bonds vibrate at frequencies higher than double bonds.
Double bonds vibrate at higher frequencies than single bonds.
Table 12-1 lists some common types of bonds, together with their stretching frequencies, to show how Frequency varies with the mass of the atoms and the strengths of the bonds.
The absorptions result from exciting the (plural) modes of the bonds in the molecule.
Even with simple compounds,...
The frequencies and bond energies listed here are approximations.
The methanol spectrum is an example.
We see absorptions from bending vibrations.
The bond lengths stay the same, but the bond angles vibrate.
There are absorptions from several bending modes.
The diagram shows the fundamental modes of a water molecule.
As shown in the preceding figure, water has three fundamental modes.
Methanol has 21 fundamental modes, and ethanol has 12.
We observe combinations and multiples of the simple fundamental modes.
You can see that the number of absorptions in the spectrum can be large.
It is not likely that the IR spectrum of two different compounds will show the same frequencies.
The "fingerprint" of a molecule is provided by the infrared spectrum.
The 1600 to 3500 cm-1 region has the most predictable stretching vibrations.
They will be the focus of our study.
The 600 to 1400 cm-1 region of the spectrum has absorptions that appear in the 600 to 1400 cm-1 region.
The stretching and bending characteristic frequencies are listed in the reference table.
Not all of the vibrations absorb the radiation.
To understand which ones do and which do not, we need to look at how the field interacts with the bond.
The dipole moment of the bond is the key to this interaction.
A positive charge and a negative charge are separated by a spring.
If this bond is placed in an electric field, it can either be stretched or compressed.
The polar bond is stretched and compressed by this field.
The difference between stretched molecule compressed molecule stretched by an electric field and increased electric electric depends on the direction of the field.
The dipole moment of the bond is decreasing.
The bond stretches when the field is opposite the dipole moment.
Energy may be absorbed if the alternate stretching and compression of the bond occurs at the molecule's natural rate of vibration.
The electric field does not interact with a bond if it is symmetrical.
If the bond is stretched or compressed, the dipole moment is zero.
There is no absorption of energy because the vibration doesn't change the dipole moment.
If a bond has a dipole moment, it causes an absorption in the IR spectrum.
If a bond is symmetrically substituted and has no dipole moment, its stretching vibration is weak.
Bonds with zero dipole moments can produce weak absorptions because they are unsymmetrical.
Liquid, solid, or gaseous samples can be placed in the beam of light to measure the spectrum.
A drop of liquid can be placed between two salt plates that are transparent to the light of most important frequencies.
A solid can be ground and pressed into a disk with a light beam.
A liquid is placed between two salt plates.
Solids can be dissolved in common solvents that don't have absorptions in the areas of interest.
The cell has polished salt windows.
Two beams of light are used in a simple IR spectrometer.
A rotating mirror allows light from the two beams to enter the monochromator.
The monochromator uses gratings that allow only one wavelength of light to enter the detector at a time.
Higher frequencies can be seen to the left of the chart paper.
The instruments need to be manually aligned and adjusted on a regular basis.
dispersive instruments need strong IR sources, and they need 2 to 10 minutes to complete a complete spectrum, since only one frequency is observed at a time.
Most of the time, the use of Fourier transform IR spectrometers is used.
The beamsplitter is usually made of polished KBr and placed at a 45 degree angle.
Part of the beam is reflected in the beamsplitter.
The reflected beam strikes a mirror that is stationary, while the transmitted beam strikes a mirror that is moving.
The beams come back from the mirrors.
The sample compartment contains the interferogram which contains all frequencies.
The sensitivity of the FT-IR is better than the dispersive instrument because it measures all frequencies simultaneously.
Less energy is needed from the source and less time is needed for the scans.
Several scans can be completed in a few seconds and averaged to improve the signal.
A laser beam is used with the IR beam to control the speed of the moving mirror and to time the collection of data points.
The laser beam is used to calibrate the spectrometer.
There are four major absorption bands.
The band at 1467 cm-1 is the result of a scissoring vibration of the CH2 groups.
The rocking of CH3 and CH2 groups resulted in the absorptions at 1378 and 722 cm-1.
All of these bands are common.
We can be certain that it is an alkane because we don't see absorption bands for other groups.
C stretching absorptions.
Their absorptions are weak and their C bonds are small.
Carbon-carbon bonds and carbon-hydrogen bonds are the only bonds in hydrocarbons.
The absorptions of carbon-carbon and carbon-hydrogen bonds can indicate the presence of double and triple bonds if an authentic spectrum is available to compare "fingerprints."
Stronger bonds absorb more power at higher frequencies.
Carbon-carbon single bonds absorb 1200 cm-1, C double bonds absorb 1660 cm-1, and C triple bonds absorb 2200 cm-1.
C single bond absorptions are not very reliable.
The fingerprint region is used to confirm the identity of an unknown compound.
The structure determi nation is helped by the absorptions of C " C double bonds.
The stretching absorptions can be seen in the region of 1600 to 1680 cm-1.
If there is another double bond nearby, the doublebond stretching vibrates at different frequencies.
conjugate double bonds are slightly more stable than isolated double bonds because there is a small amount of pi bonding between them.
The double bonds have less electron density because of the overlap between the pi bonds.
They are a little less stiff and vibrate a little slower than an isolated double bond.
conjugate double bonds absorb around 1620 to 1640 cm-1 while isolated double bonds absorb around 1680 to 1680 cm-1.
There are three double bonds in a six-membered ring.
C bonds in aromatic rings can be more like 1 12 bonds than true double bonds, and their reduced pi bonding results in being represented by a circle.
Carbon-carbon triple bonds are stronger and more resistant to damage than carbon-carbon single or double bonds.
The stretching frequencies for alkyne C, C triple bonds are between 2200 cm-1.
Terminal alkynes give signals of moderate intensity.
The C, C stretching absorption of an internal alkyne may be weak or absent because of the symmetry of the disubstituted triple bond.
The double bond can be seen in the H stretch above 3000 cm-1.
The 2 orbital will be slightly stronger.
The hybrid carbon absorbs at a higher Frequency.
The bands in the fingerprint region are due to the bending vibrations discussed in Figure 12-6.
The absorption of C at 1660 cm-1 is weak.
The H stretch at 3023 cm-1 is still visible.
The C " C double bond has a range of instruments.
The disubstituted double bond has a small dipole moment.
H stretching just above 3000 cm-1 shows the presence of a stretch.
The IR spectrum of oct-1-yne and oct-4-yne are compared.
The 2119 cm-1 absorption is the result of stretching the C triple bond.
The spectrum of oct-4-yne is not helpful.
The absorption is around 3300 cm-1.
The disubstituted triple bond has a very small dipole moment, so there is no visible C. The spectrum doesn't alert us to the presence of a triple bond.
The spectrum of oct-1-yne shows that the H bond and triple bond have too small a dipole moment to produce the C.
Determine whether the compound is an alkane, an alkene, an alkyne, or an aromatic hydrocarbons, and assign the major peaks above 1600 cm-1.
There may be more than one group present.
The bonds of amines are strong.
H bonds absorb a wide range of frequencies.
Different alcohol molecule have different instantaneous arrangements in hydrogen bonding.
H stretching frequencies reflect the diversity of hydrogen-bonding arrangements.
The H absorption was centered in the butan-1-ol spectrum.
H absorptions are expanded by hydrogen bonding.
H absorption is usually centered around 3000 cm-1, compared with 3300 cm-1 for an alcohol, because of the stronger hydrogen bonding between acid molecule.
The stretching absorption is centered around 1060 cm-1.
O bonds show strong absorptions in the range of 1000 to 1200 cm-1; however, other functional groups also absorb in this region.
The only clue that the compound is ether is O absorption.
The stretching absorption is centered around 3300 cm-1.
The shape is due to the diverse nature of alcohol molecule interactions.
H bonds have stretching frequencies that are in the 3300 cm-1 region.
The presence of nitrogen in the formula helps to distinguish alcohols from amines.
The IR spectrum has absorptions.
The stretching absorption is centered around 3300 cm-1.
The C " O double bond has a large dipole moment.
The exact frequencies of carbonyl groups depend on the functional group and the rest of the molecule.
The type of carbonyl group in an unknown compound can often be detected with the help of a method such as IR.
To simplify our discussion of carbonyl absorptions, we first consider the "normal" stretching frequencies for simple ketones, aldehydes, and carboxylic acids, and then we examine the types of carbonyl groups that deviate from this frequency.
The stretching of simple ketones and carboxylic acids can be seen around 1710 cm-1.
About 1725 cm-1 is where the Aldehydes are.
The C " O double bond is stronger and stiffer than the C " C double bonds.
The small overtone peaks produced by carbonyl absorptions are double their fundamental frequencies.
The frequencies are around 2900 and 2900 cm-1.
A ketone or acid doesn't produce absorptions at these positions.
Small overtone peaks around 3400 cm-1, double their carbonyl Real spectrum are rarely perfect.
Weak absorptions in the intense carbonyl stretching are caused by H absorption in addition to water.
The region is stretching.
The compound has the following IR spectrum.
The region is stretching.
There are two more peaks around 2720 and 2820 cm-1.
The strong peak at 1725 cm-1 is a C " O, and the peaks at 2720 and 2820 cm-1 suggest an aldehyde.
The small peak is likely an overtone of the intense C " O absorption.
There are three compounds.
The functional groups of each compound are alcohol, amine, ketone, aldehyde, and carboxylic acid.
The major peaks above 1600 cm-1 should be assigned to the functional group in each compound.
Section 12-7A shows that the C double bond lowers the stretching frequency.
This is also true of carbonyl groups.
Delocalization of the pi electrons reduces the electron density of the carbonyl double bond, weakens it, and lowers the stretching frequency for conjugated ketones, aldehydes, and acids.
The carbonyl groups of amides absorb low IR frequencies.
The pi bond between carbon and nitrogen is less than a full C " O double bond because of the dipolar resonance structure.
They are in the same part of the spectrum.
Simple carboxylic esters absorb around 1735 cm-1.
In a five-membered ring or smaller, these higher-frequency absorptions can be seen.
In a small ring, the angle strain on the carbonyl group forces more electron density into the C " O double bond, resulting in a stronger bond.
N single bond stretch is not useful for structure determination.
Carbon-nitrogen double bonds absorb in the same region as C double bonds, around 1660 cm-1, but the C " N bond gives rise to stronger absorptions because of its greater dipole moment.
The C " N stretch is similar to a carbonyl in intensity absorption.
The triple bond of a nitrile is the most recognized carbon-nitrogen bond.
nitrile triple bonds are more polar than C triple bonds, so they produce stronger absorptions.
The regions of the IR spectrum correspond with bonds to hydrogen, followed by triple bonds, double bonds, and single bonds between heavier elements.
The stretching absorptions of nitrile triple bonds are more intense than those of alkyne triple bonds.
Triple bonds, double bonds, and single bonds are the next highest.
There are three compounds that have the infrared spectrum.
There are at least one functional group in each compound.
The major peaks above 1600 cm-1 should be assigned to the functional group in each compound.
There are hundreds of characteristic absorptions in Appendix 2.
Appendix 2A is visually organized while Appendix 2B is organized by functional groups.
When using this table, remember that the numbers are approximate and they don't give ranges to cover all the unusual cases.
As a result of ring strain and other factors, frequencies change.
The ability to identify functional groups is the most useful aspect of IR.
The carbon skeleton and alkyl groups in the compound are not given much information by IR.
In Chapter 13, we will see that the aspects of the structure can be determined by NMR.
An expert can only determine a structure based on the IR spectrum.
In the interpretation of IR spectrum there can be misunderstandings.
A strong absorption at 1680 cm-1 might be the result of an amide, an isolated double bond, a conjugated ketone, a conjugated aldehyde, or a carboxylic acid.
Familiarity with other regions of the spectrum allows us to determine which functional groups are present.
In some cases, we can't be certain of the functional group without additional information.
The peaks in the fingerprint region are dependent on complex vibrations involving the entire molecule, and it is highly unlikely for any two compounds to have the same spectrum.

The spectrum is compared with the column at different times, leaving a transfer line into the ion source of the mass as an authentic sample.
In a high vacuum, the ion passes down the length of four rods, which have compounds, to confirm the different voltages applied to them.

Three IR spectrums are shown, corresponding to three compounds.
Explain how the peaks in the spectrum correspond to the structure you have chosen.
A student added 1-bromobutane to a flask.
The ether boiled for several minutes after an exothermic reaction.
The ether boiled more vigorously after she added acetone to the reaction mixture.
She separated the layers after adding acid.
The ether layer was evaporated and the liquid boiled.
The GC-MS analysis showed one major product with a few minor impurities.
The mass spectrum of the product is shown.
You can show the product that was formed by drawing out the reactions.
A previous student's unlabeled sample was found by a student who was checking into her lab desk.
She was asked to identify the sample.
She did a GC-MS because it seemed too reactive to be an alkane.
Next, the mass spectrum is shown.
You should identify the compound as far as you can, and state what part of your identification is uncertain.
Represent the peaks in fragments.
There are three lab experiments shown.
Explain how the IR spectrum of the product would be different from that of the reactant.
Give approximate frequencies for peaks in the IR spectrum of the reactant and product.
If you can determine a moderately complex structure from just the IR and theMS, then you've done your job.
The compound's IR andMS are shown.
Reasoning and intuition can be used to determine a likely structure.
You should show how your structure is in line with the spectrum.
The structures have different absorptions in the IR.
The following structures are followed by mass data.
Give a structure of the ion responsible for the base peak.
