hydroxy functional group

How do we know when to use (or if we even use it at all) the hydroxy functional group instead of the alcohol functional group and what is the difference between the two?

Re: Winter 2012 Q3

You would determine it with the standard state conditions for the molecules and whichever gives you the most positive value for E would be the anode and cathode that you would use.

Re: Twisted Boat Confirmation Stability

It is more stable because there is less steric strain.

Re: PH

I think it only affects it if it has H+ in the reaction which is also why there is the derived form of the nernst equation that uses the log instead of ln. The different pH in this equation might show you how it is affected.

Re: Naming ethers

I think it would be 4-methyl-6-(3-chloro-2-methyl)-propoxyhex-2-ene.

Re: 2013 Final 6a priority

I think that the double bond is numbered first but and the reason it is 1,5,5,6 instead of 2,3,4,4 is because 1 is lower than 2 and the moment you get a number that is lower that would be the numbering you use even if the sum of all the numbers is greater.

Re: Primary, secondary, tertiary

I am not sure but I don't think that you have to include it in the name of the actual molecule but you would if they specifically asked about it.

Yes it is somewhat similar to the example that Professor Lavelle did during the organic chemistry review session on Wednesday.

Twist Boat Conformation

In what situations would we know to use the twist boat conformation? Is that just an extra step between the boat conformation and the chair conformation?

Deciding which should be oxidizing and reducing agent

When you are picking which is the oxidizing and reducing agent when both have positive standard reduction potentials you should make the smallest number the one that is being oxidized right?

Bond Enthalpies

Just to clarify. When you are calculating the bond enthalpies the bonds that are broken would release heat into the system so the enthalpy would be positive and when a bond is formed the enthalpy would be negative because energy is being stored in the bond correct?

Midterm Question

Is there anything that we need to have memorized for this midterm such as the oxidation states for various elements like oxygen and hydrogen?

Re: Course Reader pg. 41

I think that it is basically asking what the temperature would have to be to make the reaction spontaneous. In other words what value for T would make deltaG negative in the equation deltaG=deltaH-T*deltaS This value of T would most likely be a different value than the value of the boiling point whi...
