This sounds like a homework problem to me and I advise you to do it
yourself. If not take a proton and carbon spectra and that should give you
your answer very quickly.

  Subject: ORGLIST: IR Problem


  Hello
  there's a problem in IR spectroscopy i am finding confusing

  a compound shows IR bands at 1620, 990 and 910 reciprocal cm.
  its molecular formula is C3H6O
  find its structure

  now,
  the band at 1620 refers to alkene C=C
  the bands at 990 and 910 refer to monosubstituted ethylene.
  my problem is;where does the oxygen fit in?there is no C=O.so the closest
bet is an ether.
  but ethers show C-O stretching frequency at 1000-1300 reciprocal cm.
  so what could be the structure?

  thanks
  Ashutosh
