Describe the principal structural difference between amylose and cellulose and then between glycogen and cellulose.
Hi, I need some assistance with this organic chemistry concept. Could you show me how to draw all the alcohols that have the molecular formula C5H11OH. I also need assistance assigning the names to each compound and explaining if they are primary, secondary, or tertiary alcohols.
Find the activity(not the activity coefficient) of the (C3H7)4N+ (tetrapropylammonium) ion in a solution containing 0.005 M (C3H7)4N+Br- plus 0.005 M (CH3)4N+Cl-. Activity coefficients : Ionic strength .001 .005 .01 .05 0.1 (C3H7)4N+ : .966 .931 .912 .85 .82 CH3)4N+:
Esterification: write an equation to show the formation of ethyl formate.
Question: What chemical tests might be used to distinguish between: pentanal and 2-pentanone, between benzyl alcohol and diphenylmethanol? I believe that the tests to distinguish pentanal and 2-pentanone can be: NMR spectrometry and a 2,4 dinitrophenylhydrazine test. The tests to distinguish benzyl alcohol and diphenylmethanol c
Which of the following compounds have a meso form? (a) 2,3-Dibromopentane (b) 2,4-Dibromopentane (c) 2,3-Dibromobutane
A sample of 150 mg of an organic compound is dissolved in 7.5 mL of water. The solution is placed in a 20-cm polarimeter tube and the rotation measured in a polarimeter. The rotation observed was +2.676 degrees. Distilled water, in the same tube, gave a reading of +0.016 degrees. Calculate the specific rotation for the compound.
a) Discuss what you would observe after elution and visualization of a TLC plate having made the following mistakes in carrying out the analysis. 1. The solvent level in the developing jar was higher than the original line on which the samples were spotted. 2. Too much sample was applied to the TLC plate. b) Over the y
1.) is 47.8 ng/L = 0.0478ppb? and if so would that above concentration be above 10,000 ug/L (what would this be in ppb) 2.) is 6.77 ng/m^3 = 0.0066 ppb? an if so, would that exceed 0.5-5g/Kg for a 70 kg person (which is a lethal concentration) (and what would this be in ppb) and would that exceed Lethal co
This is more of a theoretical question I think. Co(NH3)5ClBr has two compounds for that one formula. My question is how would I be able to demonstrate that the two compounds are different and how would I be able to explain what kind of isomerism it illustrates?
Upon nitration, 1-naphthol (1-hydroxynaphthalene) yields 2,4-dinitronaphthol, while 1-nitronaphthalene yields, 1,8-dinitronaphthalene and 1,5-dinitronaphthalene. How do you account for this contrast?
The enantiomers (R and S forms) of the following chiral alcohols need to be separated by a suitable CHIRAL SEPARATION method. What is a reasonable approach that will yield the separations of the two isomeric alcohols and their enantiomers. Rationalizing the approach used on the basis of chiral recognition mechanism. What will
An unknown organic compound is a nonelectrolyte known to be composed of C, N, O, and H. Combustion analysis showed that it contained 67.3% C, 4.62% N, and 6.93% H. A solution made by dissolving 1.20 g of the unknown compound in 25.0 g of benzene had a freezing point of 4.7 degrees Celsius. Determine: a) the empirical formula b
