ACTIVITIES

Molecules with the same molecular formula can have different structures, this is called isomerism. Structural isomers can belong to different homologous series.

  1.  The alkene with the molecular formula C4H8 can form three structural isomers.

(a)          Draw the structural formulae of the three isomers.

(b)         Give the IUPAC names of the three isomers.

  1. An organic compound with the molecular formula C3H6O2 can similarly form three structural isomers.

(a)            Draw the structural formulae of the three isomers

(b)           Give the IUPAC names for the three isomers.

  1. There are two structural isomers for the organic compound with the molecular formula C2H4O2.

(a)           Write down the structural formulae of these two isomers and next to each, the IUPAC name.

  1. An organic compound has the following molecular formula:C5H12O.

(a)           Write down the structural formulae for three of its structural isomers.

(b)           Write down the IUPAC names of the structural isomers.
