10. Which peak would be more intense, a peak on IR for a terminal (at the end of the molecule) C=C or a peak for a C=C that appears in the middle of the molecule? Why?
A peak on IR for a terminal (at the end of the molecule) C=C would be more intense than a peak for a C=C that appears in the middle of the molecule.
Sometimes an internal non-conjugated C=C is difficult to identify. Since, the dipole moment associated with this bond is small; stretching this bonds also leads to a very small change.
In cases where symmetry is involved, such as in 3-hexene, there is no change in dipole moment and this absorption peak is completely absent.
