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) 4-methyl-2-pentanone (isobutyl methyl ketone)
2) 2,4-dimethyl-3-pentanone (diisopropyl ketone)
The expert examines identifying an unknown liquid via infrared spectrum.
