Why might the O—H stretch in the IR of MY triphenylmethanol product be less intense than expected when compared to the expected IR for triphenylmethanol?
I'm interpreting the IR I took of my product, triphenylmethanol, to the expected IR I obtained from SDBS.
We performed a Grignard Reaction in lab using bromobenzene and methyl benzoate in order to synthesize triphenylmethanol.
ANY clues why my triphenylmethanol (O—H stretch) is not as intense? I really don't know.
