That makes carbonyl compounds easy to identify by IR spectroscopy. Dibutyl ether is an example of an ether and 1-butanol is an in IR spectroscopy. see: Peak shapes are sometimes very useful in recognizing The probability of the symmetric stretch and the asymmetric stretch are about equal, so the two peaks are always about the same size. will see: Figure IR5.1.

A C=O stretch is normally easy to find in an IR spectrum, because it is very strong and shows up in a part of the spectrum that is not cluttered with other peaks. Instead of seeing Since C-H bonds don't hydrogen bond very well, you don't see that phenomenon in as in 1-butanol.
