Circle the functional group(s) in salicylic acid and write the name of the functional group(s) next to your circle(s). Then, draw the structure of the product(s) of this reaction.
Salicylic acid and 1-propene-3-ol have carbon-carbon double bonds. You measure the IR spectrum of each compound. The C=C peak in salicylic acid is at a lower energy than the C=C peak in 1-propene-3-ol. Give reasons.
Functional Groups in Organic Chemistry:
Functional Groups in Organic molecules are the atoms or groups of atoms that give the molecule its characteristic physical and chemical properties.
Hydroxyl (-OH), carbonyl (>C=O), carboxylic (-COOH), etc. are some of the functional groups.
IR spectroscopy helps us in deducing the functional groups present in a molecule based on their characteristic stretching frequencies.
