Abstract : The spectra from 15 to 35 microns of 45 ketones, 30 ethers and 12 alcohols were analyzed and correlated. For identification purposes the data in this spectral region were shown to be useful as a supplement to data obtained in the 2-15 micron region. The spectra of ketones in the 15-35 micron region are very informative of their detailed structural features, and distinguish between aliphatic methyl ketones with and without alpha branching, aromatic methyl ketones and cyclic ketones. Tentatively, the ring size of cyclic ketones may also be determined. Study of these spectra indicates that the previous assignment of acetone is in error and a new assignment is proposed. The spectra of ethers and alcohols in the 15-35 micron region are less informative. Aliphatic ethers possess one fair group frequency, at 1/480-1/520 cm. The broad absorption by alcohols 1/650 cm was confirmed. (Author)
