    Please identifying the unknown liquid represented by infrared spectrum in the attachment.

    Also, please attach a IR spectra from the SDBS spectral database for me to compare your answer.

    The liquid is soluble in water and has a boiling boing somewhere between 120-125 degrees Celsius.

    If the liquid is a alcohol, ketone or an aldehyde the choice are (but not limited to if you have a better answer):

    1) 3,3,-Dimethyl-2-butanol
    2) 2,3-Dimethyl-2-butanol
    3) 2-methyl-2-pentanol
    4) 3-methyl-3-pentanol
    5) 2-methoxyethanol
    6) 2-methyl-3-pentanol
    7) 2-Chloroethanol

    1) 4-methyl-2-pentanone (isobutyl methyl ketone)
    2) 2,4-dimethyl-3-pentanone (diisopropyl ketone)
    3) 3-Hexanone
    4) 2-Hexanone
    5) 4-methyl-3-penten-2-one

    1) 2-ethylbutanal
    2) Hexanal
