In 1967, C.J. Perdersen while working at Du Pont performed the following reaction. (12 points)
He obtained a nice white crystalline product. The IR of the product is shown below:
a) Did Pedersen obtain the expected product? (Justify your answer).
b) Based on the IR which functional groups are present?
c) Elemental analysis and mass spectroscopy allow us to determine that the product is C20H24O6. Propose a possible product for this reaction that is consistent with the formula and the IR. (Pedersen received the Nobel Prize in 1987 for the synthesis of this class of compounds).
Match the four molecules with their corresponding IR.
