Objective

To see whether hemiacetals could be detected via GCMS

Procedure

4-nitrobenzaldehyde was added to an excess amount of methanol. The sample was then put into GCMS. GCMS went up to 250 C.

Results

Discussion

The hemiacetals may have deteriorated at the temperature the GCMS went up to.

Conclusion

The hemiacetals were not detectable via GCMS
