I need help interpreting my IR spec for triphenylmethanol, especially looking for "bending" in the IR? I'm not sure what this means and what to look for.

send me the spectroscopy so i can interpret it for yu and see if this helps slightly helps

OH should be around 3550-3200 cm-1., which is not narrow,

 triphenylmethanol is slightly expanded so its steric, with  OH, C-O peak will be 1300-1000 cm-1.  three benzene ring, will mean C=C (aromatic) peak around 1600-1585 cm-1 and 1500-1400 cm-1.

OH is the smaller peak , the bigger peak should be you C=C double bond

ok so the C=C double bond would be the bigger peak between 1400 and 1600 cm-1?
