C2H5Br CH3CH2Br infrared spectrum of bromoethane wavenumbers cm-1 functional group detection fingerprint pattern identification of bromoethane ethyl bromide doc brown's advanced organic chemistry revision notes 

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

Interpretation of the infrared spectrum of bromoethane

The most prominent infrared absorption lines of bromoethane

Several moderately strong absorption bands at wavenumbers 2975 to 2845 cm-1 for C-H stretching vibrations - collectively give the impression of strong absorption in the infrared spectrum of bromoethane.

Several strong absorption bands from C-H deformation vibrations at wavenumbers 1470 to 1370 cm-1.

Several strong absorption bands from 780 to 580 cm-1 due to C-Cl stretching vibrations of bromoethane.

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