SAMPLE HANDLING AND I.R INTERPRETATION Presented by Afzaye Rabeya Rasul 1 st year M.Pharm Department of pharmaceutical chemistry Al- Ameen college of pharmacy , bangalore .


POINT TO DISCUSS : 1.INTRODUCTION 2.SAMPLE HANDLING - sample of solid -sample of liquids -sample of gases 3.INTERPRETATION OF I.R 4.ADDITIONAL PROBLEM


INTRODUCTION : Infrared spectrum is an important record which gives the sufficient information about the structure of a compound . I.R region: The range of EMR between the visible and microwaves region is called I.R region.


SAMPLE HANDLING IN IR SPECTROSCOPY sapling of solid :- pressed pellet technicque : In this technique some amount of finely ground solid sample is mixed with about 100 times its weight of powdered KBr . KBr will eliminate the problem of additional bands because it won’t absorb infrared light in the 2.5µm to 15 µm region and a complete spectrum of sample is obtained . The mixture is pressed under a high pressure(10000-15000 pounds/sq. inch) in a die to form a small pellet.

Slide 5:

Advantage : 1.The KBr pellet can be stored for longer time . 2.As the concentration of the sample can be suitably adjusted in the pellet, it can be used for quantitative analysis . 3.The resolution of the spectrum in KBr is superior to that obtained with Nujol mull technique.

Slide 6:

Disadvantage : 1.It always has band at 3450cm-1 from the OH group of the moister present in the sample . 2.The high pressure involved in the formation of pellet may bring about polymorphic changes in crystallinity in the sample(specially for inorganic complexes) which causes complication in IR spectrum. In some causes even substitution of the ligand by bromide may be possible in inorganic complexes . 3.This method is not successful for some polymers which are difficult to grind with KBr .

Slide 7:

b . Mull technique : In this technique the finely ground solid sample is mixed with Nujol (mineral oil) to make a thick paste which is then made to spread between IR transmitting windows. This is then mounted in a path of infrared beam and the spectrum is run. This method is good for quantitative analysis.

Slide 8:

Disadvantages : 1.It shows absorption of maximum at 2915 cm -1 , 1462cm -1 , 1376cm -1 , 719 cm -1 2.Polymorphic changes, degradation, and other changes may occur during grinding.

Slide 9:

c. Solid films : If a solid is amorphous in nature the sample is deposited on the surface of KBr or NaCl cell by evaporation of a solution of a solid. This method is useful for rapid qualitative analysis and become useless for carrying out quantitative analysis.

Slide 10:

d. Solid run in solution : The solid may be dissolved in a non-aqueous solvent provided there is no chemical interaction with the solvent and also the does not absorb in the studied range. The various solvent used are acetone, acetonitrate , benzene, CCI4 , CS2, cyclohexane, terachloroethylene , methylenechloride . Among these only CCI4 , CS2 are ideal as they shows very few absorption band themselves CS gives two prominent bands, one in the region of 200-2100 cm-1 and other at 1595-1460 cm-1 CCl4 gives only one bend 820-720 cm

Slide 11:

2.Sampling of gases : Gas samples are examined in the lR spectrometer after removal of water vapour. The simplest gas cell consists of metal/gas cylinder of 10cm long and closed with a appropriate window.The gaseous sample is passed through a stopcock via a suitable gas handing apparatus and partial pressure of 5 to 15mmHG gives a reasonable level of absorption in most cases .The end wall of gas cell is made of NaCl and for low concentrated gases long path legths are required. Multi reflection can be used to make effective path length as long as 40cm so that constituent of gas can be determind .

Slide 12:

3. Sampling of liquid: Sample that are liquid at room temperature are usually put frequently with no preparation into rectangular cell made up of NaCl , KBr orThBr and their IR spectra is obtained directly. The sample thickness is so selected that the transmittance lies between 15 and 20% . For most sample this will be represent a thin layer of 0.01 to 0.05mm in thickness. Some times the liquid samples can be dissolved in suitable solvents and scanned in IR region using any suitable cell.

How to approch the analysis of spectra ::

How to approch the analysis of spectra : When analysing the spectra of unknown compound , concentrate first on determining the presence or absence of few major functional group . The C=O , O-H , C-O , C=C , C≡C , C≡N, and NO 2 peaks are the most conspicuous and give immediate structural information if they are present.

Slide 14:

1.Look if carbonyl group (C = O) is present? The C = O group gives strong absorption in the region 1820-1600cm -1 , the peak is strong and medium width. 2. If C=O is present , check for the presence of the following groups: Acid (ii) Amides (iii) Ester (iv) Anhydrides (v) Aldehydes (vi) ketones

Slide 15:

3. If C=O is absent Alcohol ( ii) Phenols (iii) Amines (iv) Ether

Slide 16:

4. Double bond and / or aromatic ring : C=C is a weak absorption near 1650 cm -1 . (ii) Medium to strong absorption in the region of 1600 - 1550cm -1 often imply an aromatic ring . (iii) Confirm the double bond or aromatic ring by consulting the C-H region , if C-H stretch occurs to the left of 3000cm-1 ,then it is aromatic or vinyl . If C-H stretch occurs to right of 3000cm -1 then it is aliphatic.

Slide 17:

5 . Triple bond : C ≡ N is a medium sharp peak near 2250cm -1 ( ii) C ≡ C is a weak sharp peak near 2150 cm -1 ( iii) Check also for acetylinic C-H near 3300cm -1 , which gives an idea if the triple bond is placed terminally .

Slide 18:

6 . Nitrogroup : Two strong absorption at 1600 - 1500cm -1 and 1390 - 1300cm -1 7. Hydrocarbon


HYDROCARBONES: 1.ALKANES: - They yield four stretching and bending vibration of C-H and C-C bonds . 1 .C - C BENDING VIBRATION : 2. C - H STRETCHING VIBRATION 3. CH 3 BENDING VIBRATIONS : 4. CH 2 BENDING VIBRATION : Example Decane , cyclohexane

Slide 20:


Slide 22:

2.ALKENE : Alkenes show many more peaks than alkanes = C - H stretch for sp2 C-H occurs at region slightly greater than 3000cm-1 = C - H out of plane ( oop ) bending occurs in ranges of 1000-650cm-1. Example:1-hexene, cyclohexene, cis-2-pentene.

Slide 25:

3.ALKYNES: Terminali alkyne show prominent peak at about 3300cm-1 for SP hybridized C-H . ≡ C – H stretching vibration occurs at 3300cm-1 C ≡C stretch occurs near 2150cm-1 this is only for terminal alkynes (absent or very weak for non terminal alkynes) Example:1-octyne,4-octyne

Slide 27:

4.AROMATIC HYDROCOMPOUND : The C-H stretching for SP 2 carbon aapears at value greater than 3000cm-1. since the C-H stretch for alkenes appears in the same range ,it may be difficult to use the C - H stretching bands to differentiate between alkenes and aromatic compounds . Example: Toluene, o- diethylbenzene ,m- diethylbenzene , p- diethylbenzene , and styrene.

Slide 30:

5.ALCOHOL AND PHENOL : Alcohol and phenol show strong and broad hydrogen bonded O-H stretching bands centering between 3400cm-1 and 3300cm-1. In solution it will also be possible to observe a free O-H stretching band at 3600cm-1 . Example: 1-hexanol,2-butanol,para cresol.

Slide 32:

6.ETHERS: Ether show prominent C-O stretching band at 1300 to 1000cm -1 . Absence of C=O and O-H is required to ensure that C-O stretch is not due to an ester and phenol .phenyl alkyl ether gives two strong bands at 1250cm -1 and 1040cm -1 . Example : dibutylether , anisole

Slide 34:

8.ALDEHYDE : Aldehydes show a very strong band for C=O that appears in the range of 1740 to 1725cm-1 ,for simple aliphatic aldehydes. This band is shifted to lower frequency with conjugation to a C=C or phenyl group . EXAMPLE : Nonanal , crotonaldehyde , benzaldehyde .

Slide 36:

9.KETONE : ketone show a very strong band for c=o group that appears in the range of 1720 to 1708cm -1 for simple aliphatic ketones .this bond is shifted to lower frequency with conjugation to a c=c or phenyl group . ring strain moves the absorption to a higher frequency in cyclic ketones . An overtones is seen at 3430cm -1 Ex:3-methyl-2-butanone,mesityl oxides,acetophenone,cyclopentanone,2,4-pentanedione.

Slide 38:

11.Carboxylic acid : It shows very strong bands that appears in the range of 1730-1700cm-1 for simple aliphatic carboxylic acids, this band is shifted to lower frequency conjugation to a C=C or phenyl group . Example : isobutyric acid

Slide 40:

11.ESTER Esters show a vey strong band for the C=O group that appears in the range of 1750-1735cm-1 for simple aliphatic esters . The C=O band is shifted to lower frequency when it is conjugated to C=C or phenyl group . Ex : ethyl butyrate , methyl methacrylate , vinyl acetate , methyl benzoate , methyl salicylate.

Slide 42:

13.AMIDES Amides show a very strong band for the C=O group that appears in the range of 1680 to 1630cm-1 . N-H stretch in primary amides (- NH 2 ) gives two bands near 3350cm -1 (asymmetric), and 3180cm -1 (symmetric) secondary amides (-NH) have one band at 3300cm- 1 . Tertiary amides will not show an N-H stretch because they do not contain N-H . EX: Propionamide , N- Methylacetamide

Slide 44:

14. ACID CHLORIDES -Acid chlorides show a very strong band for the C=O group that appears in the range of 1810 to 1775cm-1 for aliphatic acid chlorides. -Acid chlorides and anhydrides are the most common functional groups that have a C=O appearing at such a high frequency. EX: Acetyl chloride, benzoyl chloride.
