Assume that all the methylene groups in the alkane are equally reactive as sites of free-radical chlorination. a) Photochemical chlorination of heptane gave a mixture of monochlorides containing 15% 1-chloroheptane. What other monochlorides are present? Estimate the percentage of each of these additioanl C7H15Cl isomers in
Please see the attached file for full problem description. --- 1) Ethanal is the common name for acetaldehyde. And it has the formula C(-CH3, =O, -H) (I will show carbon compounds this way, first the carbon and then its constituents, "-" is for single bond and "=" for double bond) and benzaldehyde has the formula C(-Ar=O

I need helping with how to determine a limiting reagent and percent yield. For the following question, I started out with 0.60 grams of trans-cinnamic acid and added 3.5 mL of dichloromethane and 2.0 mL of 10% bromine in dichloromethane solution. I re-fluxed the reaction, and, during re-fluxing, added a couple more drops of the

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.

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?
