0 Comment

The functional groups in an organic compound can frequently be deduced from its infrared absorption spectrum. A compound, C3HO2, exhibits intense absorption at 1740 cmquot;, accompanied by a band at 1050 cmquot;. No
absorption above 3000 cm- is present .
Relative absorption intensity: (s)=strong, (m)=medium, (w)=weak.
What functional class(es) does the compound belong to?
List only classes for which evidence is given here. Attach no significance to evidence not cited explicitly.
Do not over-interpret exact absorption band positions. None of your inferences should depend on small differences like 10 to 20 cm-1.
