infrared spectrum of 1,1-dichloroethane C2H4Cl2 CH3CHCl2 wavenumbers cm-1 functional group detection fingerprint pattern identification of 1,1-dichloroethane doc brown's advanced organic chemistry revision notes 

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

Interpretation of the infrared spectrum of 1,1-dichloroethane

The most prominent infrared absorption lines of 1,1-dichloroethane

As with any molecule with an alkyl group in the molecule, like 1,1-dichloroethane, C-H stretching vibrations occur at wavenumbers 2975 to 2845 cm-1 and 1470 to 1340 cm-1.

For 1,1-dichloroethane, there are series of C-Cl vibrations bands of various modes at wavenumbers 800 to 580 cm-1.

The absence of other specific functional group bands will show that a particular functional group is absent from the 1,1-dichloroethane molecular structure.
