Question

One compound whose molecular formula is C4H6 is a bicyclic compound. Another compound with the same formula has an infrared absorption at roughly 2250 cm-1 (the bicyclic compound does not). Draw structures for each of these two compounds and explain how the IR absorption allows them to be differentiated.
