Can you explain how to interpret my hnmr scan for my dehydrated aldol product? I believe it to be the product of a reaction between benzaldehyde and 4-methylcyclohexanone as my product melting point was 98 degrees. However, now I have to interpret the hnmr to confirm that. Having difficulty distinguishing the 4-methylcyclohexanone part from other possible ketone reactions involving cyclopentanone or cyclohexanone. I think my product is benzyl-4-methycyclohexanone but now I need to explain why using the hnmr. Please help ASAP. Thanks. Oh, ethanol was the solvent used if that makes a difference.,Thank you. I appreciate your help immensely.,On your explanation, you’ve numbered it 1, 2 and 5. Was there supposed to be a 3 and 4 or is there a significance to the numbering 1, 2 and 5? Also, you explained the complicated split pattern for the methyl on the ketone but other than it being complicated, how is it different from say cyclohexanone? Thanks.
