    It's not possible to have 8 environments on benzene - it's only got 6 hydrogen atoms (and they are all in one environment)

    sorry i don't mean just on the benzene, the molecule has two benzene rings in it. but in the whole molecule i keep counting 8 proton environments but i know theres only 5 because there are only 5 peaks on the spectrum. i don't know where im going wrong.

    Often with benzene, the aromatic protons are grouped in the same environment in the NMR spectrum due to their close proximity to one another. For this question there are 7 aromatic protons, three of which refer to the benzene ring making up the 2,4-DNPH molecule, and the remaining four which make up the benzene ring for one of the side chains.

    I'm not quite sure I understand why you think there are 8 proton environments, or why you think the correct answer is 5?!

    the correct number of hydrogen environments is 5 because there are 5 peaks on the proton NMR, i was counting 8 in the final answer (where you deduce the R groups)Name:  Photo on 12-06-2016 at 20.10.jpg

    i checked to see if the last peak at around 7 was meant to be 2 separate peaks but its not.

    Yes so from the spectrum there are five different proton environments in total as there are five different peaks. The peak(s) at approximately 7.1-7.5 ppm are the aromatic protons. Like I said above due to their close proximity there is an overlap in peaks so the peaks for the aromatic protons will appear close together. The integration value is 7 for this peak so there are 7 aromatic protons- 3 of which are from the benzene ring making up the 2,4-DNPH molecule and the other four make up the side chain. Does this make sense or is this irrelevant to your question?

    There are two benzene rings. Hence 8 aromatic protons. If you're still stumped on this question watch this-

    Went very well so happy there was an easy 7 mark question over a proton NMR to guess I'd say I've got around 54/60

    yeah i found it alright, thinking back i know i messed up the cyclic ester one....so annoying, what do you think the grade boundries will be like?
