The infrared spectra of thirteen aliphatic aldehydes of varying structure have been recorded and analyzed in the range of 700-400 cm−1. The structural configuration adjacent to the carbonyl group was found to affect the observed spectra in a specific manner. It thus appears possible to differentiate α-branched and non-α-branched aliphatic aldehydes from their infrared spectra in this region.
