Data for the characteristic bands of cyclic ethers are reviewed. The infrared spectra of a number of 2-mono- and 2, 5-di-substituted derivatives of tetrahydrofuran are investigated. Absorption bands at about 900 cm−1 are related to pulsation vibrations, and those at about 1200 cm−1 to antisymmetric skeletal vibrations, of the tetrahydrofuran ring. It is shown that to confirm the presence of a tetrahydrofuran ring in a molecule, it is necessary to take into account not only the band of valence antisymmetric vibrations of the group C-O-C (ν C-O-C as 1075 cm−1), but also bands due to ring pulsation vibrations (ring symmetric valence vibrations ν sk s ∼ 900 cm1).
