A sample of a substance (containing only C, H, and N) is burned in oxygen and 3.042 g of CO2, 1.090 g of H2O and 1.555 g of NO are the sole products. a) What is the empirical formula of the compound? b) How many grams of the initial sample were burned?
1) When chlorinated, an alkane, C6H14, gives only two products with the formula C6H13Cl. What is the structure of the alkane? 2) The reaction of lithium di-sec-butylcuprate with isopenyl bromide yields?
Question: Give reagents that would result in the organic transformations illustrated. In each case name the functional group. Answer: Provides the expected reagents for each transformation. Please see the attached "Word" file for synthetic sequences. (Brainmass Problem 8)
The Problem gives a starting material, a target X and a proposed intermediate. Suggest a synthetic sequence to the target. The answer details a route to the target compound, covering some well known organic reactions.
Please see the attached file for chemical structures (Brainmass Problem 7). Problem: Suggest a five step synthetic sequence to give compound X
Problem: A method used to protect Esters and Acids. Solution: Gives product X and the mechanism of the second step.
Please see the attached "Word" document for structures (Brainmass Problem 5). Identify the product X. The first step is trivial ( though it is well worth practising a mechanism for completeness). Please give a detailed mechanism for the second step in the formation of the protecting group.
Organic compounds A and B react to give X under basic conditions, via a well known reaction. The solution will guide you through the mechanism from A and B and provide the name of this key reaction.
Please see the attached file for structural information (Brainmass Problem 4). 1) What types of compounds are A and B. 2) What is the name of the mechanism by which X is formed? 3) Write a detailed mechanism showing the formation of X.
Identify the missing compounds in the sequence. Suggest detailed mechanisms for each transformation.
Please see the attached "Word" file for structural information. Suggest a synthetic route to intermediate X given the reagents and conditions in the attachment. For step b-e provide a detailed mechanism.
Calculating the molecular formula of an organic compound. Worked example, using fundamental formula and balanced equations.
 1 dm3 of hydrocarbon A at 1 atmosphere pressure is shown to have a mass of 2.333g. Given that the molar volume of a gas at S.T.P (ie 25°C, 1 atm) is 24 dm3. Please answer the following: 1) Calculate the molecular formula of A 2) A is a member of which homologous series?  15 cm3 of a mixture of
I have a nitrobenzene ring which I need to add two substituents...COOCH3 in the meta (#4) position and Iodine in the "other" meta position (#6) (the second Carbon after the ester). The nitro group needs to be taken off as well. I can't seem to find any reference materials on what reagrents can be used. Can you please advise?
How can I synthesize 3-fluoroanisole using benzene and any other compounds containing 4 carbons or less (and any inorganic reagents you wish)?
