For this problem, we have to determine which among the compounds are IR active
Analyzing each molecule:
Select the vibrations that should be infrared active.
a) (CH3CH2)2C=O (C=O stretch)
b) (CH3CH2)3C-Cl (C-Cl stretch)
c) CH3CH2CH2C ≡ CCH2CH2CH3 ( C≡C stretch)
d) trans-4-octene (C=C stretch)
e) CH3CH2CH2CH2C≡CH (C≡C stretch)
