I determined by unknowns to be 3-pentanol and Iodine.
The GC/MS Library found a 90% match of the spectra here to 3-pentanol.
My inorganic runs were not successful on this machine.
This is my organic sample.
This is the visible peak of my inorganic unknown, which matched with Iodine.(Vapor sample)
This is probably a contamination peak of my inorganic sample.(Vapor sample)
Here is my inorganic sample run in methanol solvent. This spectrum also matches with Iodine's.
My organic unknown
See how closely these two spectra match? 3-pentanol!!!
My inorganic run in deuterochloroform with a TMS reference--no protons, just a TMS peak
Organic--matches with ...you guessed it, 3-pentanol
Inorganic--I ran a stock sample of Iodine and the two matched!!!
Here are a couple of Hyperchem images of 3-pentanol's electron orbitals. Cool, hah?
