These are the homework exercises to accompany the Textmap for McMurry's Organic Chemistry textbook.
The following is the molecule for ATP, or the molecule responsible for energy in human cells. Identify the functional groups for ATP.
Give all the isomers for a straight chain hexanol.
Consider the following molecule. How many carbons are in the longest chain? Find a primary and quaternary carbon, and label an ethyl group.
A = 4° Carbon
B = Ethyl Group
C = 1° Carbon
The longest chain is 10 carbons long
Are the following structures properly named, and if they are not, what is the correct naming?
Give the name of the following molecules:
They are both labeled incorrectly:
1 = 3,4-Dimethyl hexane
2 = 2-methyl pentane
3 = 2,2,4-trimethyl pentane
What is the most stable rotational conformation of ethane and explain why it is preferred over the other conformation?
Staggered, as there is less repulsion between the hydrogen atoms.
