infrared spectrum of 2-methylpropene C4H8 (CH3)2C=CH2 wavenumbers cm-1 functional group detection fingerprint pattern identification of 2-methylprop-1-ene doc brown's advanced organic chemistry revision notes 

Spectra obtained from a liquid film of 2-methylpropene. The right-hand part of the of the infrared spectrum of 2-methylpropene, wavenumbers ~1500 to 400 cm-1 is considered the fingerprint region for the identification of 2-methylpropene and most organic compounds. It is due to a unique set of complex overlapping vibrations of the atoms of the molecule of 2-methylpropene.

Interpretation of the infrared spectrum of 2-methylpropene

The most prominent infrared absorption lines of 2-methylpropene

There are prominent bands of C-H stretching/deformation vibration absorptions peaking at wavenumbers ~3095 to 3075 cm-1, and also at wavenumbers 895 to 885 cm-1, associated with the C-H bonds in a R1R2C=CH2 grouping e.g. as in 2-methylpropene.

Overlapping with the above, are prominent bands due to C-H stretching vibration absorptions peak at wavenumbers ~2975 to 2860 cm-1, typical of molecules with a methyl alkyl group.

There is a characteristic absorption for C=C stretching vibrations, peaking at wavenumbers 1680 to 1620 cm-1, typical of an alkene like 2-methylpropene.

The absence of other specific functional group bands will show that a particular functional group is absent from the 2-methylpropene molecular structure.
