Specify the missing compounds and/or reagents in each of the following syntheses: (c) Chemical reactions rarely yield products in such initially pure form that no trace can be found of the starting materials used to make them. What evidence in an IR spectrum of each of the crude (unpurified) products from the above reactions would indicate the presence of one of the organic reactants used to synthesize each target molecule? That is, predict one or two key IR absorptions for the reactants that would distinguish it/them from IR absorptions predicted for the product.
