I am trying to help my daughter determine the structure of this carbon compound. It has seven carbons, 14 hydrogens and one oxygen. The oxygen must be in a ketone group. Also each carbon is different (as indicated by the carbon 13 NMR).
The Attempt at a Solution
We think that the correct interpertation of the NMR shown is that there are 4 hydrogens with 3 neighboring hydrogens, 2 hydrogens with 4 nieghboring hydrogens, 2 hydrogens with 5 neighboring hydrogens, 3 hydrogens with 2 neighboring hydrogens and 3 hydrogens with 2 neighboring hydrogens. [/B]
Are we correct so far? Any suggestions?
