NMR and IR Spectroscopy of Unknown

  1. Feb 7, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I have attached the IR and NMR spectrum from lab. I have determined that there was a nitrogen present in the compound. There was no sulfur or halogens. The molecular weight was 138. The compound was solid and yellow color. It had a melting point between 124 and 134 C.

    2. Relevant equations

    I have read 2 chapters on NMR and IR, but the compound is so confusing. It has peaks everywhere. I would appreciate any kind of help.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    After looking at various websites and books, I think I have an amide group, a carboxyl acid group and aromatic ring. I have no clue if thats even right and how on earth I am going to draw the structure of compound. What does the UV stand for?

    Appreciate any kind of help. I have spent weeks on this and its due Monday. Thanks.
