C6H5Cl infrared spectrum of chlorobenzene wavenumbers cm-1 functional group detection fingerprint pattern identification of chlorobenzene doc brown's advanced organic chemistry revision notes 

Spectra obtained from a liquid film of chlorobenzene. The right-hand part of the of the infrared spectrum of chlorobenzene, wavenumbers ~1500 to 400 cm-1 is considered the fingerprint region for the identification of chlorobenzene and most organic compounds. It is due to a unique set of complex overlapping vibrations of the atoms of the molecule of chlorobenzene.

Interpretation of the infrared spectrum of chlorobenzene

The most prominent infrared absorption lines of chlorobenzene

C-H stretching vibrations of the benzene ring, wavenumbers 3080 to 3030 cm-1.

Several bands of strong absorptions with peaks at wavenumbers ~1500 and 1600 cm-1 from C=C stretching vibrations of the benzene ring.

Between wavenumbers 880 and 550 cm-1 are several overlapping absorption bands from C-H and C-Cl vibrations.

The absence of other specific functional group bands will show that particular functional group is absent from the chlorobenzene molecular structure.

Key words & phrases: C6H5Cl image and diagram explaining the infrared spectrum of chlorobenzene, complete infrared absorption spectrum of chlorobenzene, comparative spectra of chlorobenzene, prominent peaks/troughs for identifying functional groups in the infrared spectrum of chlorobenzene, important wavenumber values in cm-1 for peaks/troughs in the infrared spectrum of chlorobenzene, revision of infrared spectroscopy of chlorobenzene, fingerprint region analysis of chlorobenzene, how to identify chlorobenzene from its infrared spectrum, identifying organic compounds like chlorobenzene from their infrared spectrum, how to analyse the absorption bands in the infrared spectrum of chlorobenzene detection of  functional groups in the chlorobenzene molecule example of the infrared spectrum of a molecule like chlorobenzene with a functional group  interpreting interpretation of the infrared spectrum of chlorobenzene shows presence of  functional groups
