Re: Determining Geometric Isomers

This molecule has geometric isometry. Its difficult to see without drawing the molecule, but there are two methyl groups, one on each side of the double bond which create isometry. The isometry isn't really shown if you use the IUPAC name, because IUPAC would just consider one of the methyl groups t...

Re: Nucleophiles

An ambident nucleophile is a molecule that has resonance that gives it functionally two separate nucleophilic areas. It can form bonds on two different parts of its structure because its resonance makes both of those parts electron rich. CH3COCH2 is an ambident nucleophile because it can form bonds ...
