  1. HEY, what is the name for H3C? is it negatively charged methane?
  2. okie dokie - molecule one, is methylbromide ( i think) Molecule two has a methyl group on the first carbon and a carbonyl group on the 7th carbon (from top) and is an alcohol due to the -OH group attached to the seventh carbon... Not sure whether you count methyl group in counting carbons, but if so - it would be a nonanol... Molecule Three seems to also be an alcohol with an -OH group attached to it and has a ketone group of the seventh carbon (from top) and a H3C group on sixth (dont know what a H3C group is called) As it has seven carbons i'd presume it is a heptanol.. Molecule Four is a hydrogenated alkene/tetra alcohol... the final molecule contains an aromatic ring (a benzene ring) plus an alcohol/carbonyl group. with another alcohol group off the benzene ring... struggling to name the others as i am unfamiliar with each functioanl group therefore struggle to put 2 and 2 together... I know you can't do my work for me - but just soem assistance in that respect would be greatly appreciated
  3. Could I please get help with the naming of these organic molecules? Cheers.
  4. hmm, looking back, neither reaction can really be utilised can they? because both FCA and Birch Reduction are designed for aromatic compounds... what about grignard reaction? that would potentially affect the molecule to produce multiple products wouldnt it?
  5. It is an 'research and evaluation' question... It is meant to help broaden one's understanding of organic synthesis and the problems surrounding it - in this case, the problem of multiple products which give rise to difficulty in separation in particular in pharmaceuticals whereby isomers can be detrimental or beneficial to a human and it is of paramount importance not to mix isomers up....
  6. Looking at Friedel-Crafts Alkylation it has become quite clear that there are multiple additions that occur. So, the dialkylated material is produced along with the desired monoalkylated product. So I am guessing this would mean multiple products could occur if a a Friedel Crafts Alyklation were to be performed on that molecule.. One question is Friedel-Crafts Alkylation also known as Electrophilic Aromatic Subsitution? Also, would anyone be able to help me with which functional groups apart from the C=C it affects... Been researching for a while and cant find anything on it :S
  7. Stereoisomerism, is in my understanding, the ability of a molecule to allow different spatial arrangement. While, optical isomerism is a form of stereoisomerism in which molecules are non-superimposable. See, this is where my chemistry understanding lacks... I think the functional groups are the double carbon bonds in this reaction as they are electron dense thererfore susceptible to an electrophile, but i am not positive on that... Pretty sure there is also a chiral carbon in the molecule.. Nope, no final product. The idea of the task was to prove that by performing a reaction say Friedel Crafts Alkylation or Birch Reduction, one could attain more than one product.. or a product that can have stereoisomers...
  8. Hi, I need some help regarding my understanding of organic synthesis. I was reading over some class notes, and found a diagram which showed a molecule and stated that it could be used as a precursor for a synthesis reaction. It said, that the synthesis of it could lead to multiple products due to stereoisomersim, optical isomerism or multiple reactive sites giving unintended products. I have attached the image of the molecule below and would be very appreciative of any help with this!! Cheers, Az.
