Benzilic Acid (MRA2) was prepared from Benzil (MRA1) in the presence of KOH. MRA2 was recrystallized from the water in order to obtain needle-like transparent crystals.


Steps to reproduce

The IR transmission spectrum of the crystal sample labelled as MRA2 was obtained using attenuated total reflectance (ATR)-FTIR IRTracer-100 (Shimadzu) spectrometer. The spectrum was obtained between 400 and 4000 cm-1 with 36 scans at 4 cm-1 resolution.
