Quiz 3 Preparation Page 43, Question 4

Postby Hailey Donaldson 1E » Sun Feb 28, 2016 11:18 pm

Question 4 on page 43 of the workbook states, "Draw a line structure of 7-fluoro-3-methyl-4-vinyl-nonane." Do we need to know what the vinyl substituent means for quiz 3 and/or the final?

Lavelle went over it in class, and it is in the course reader. It's fair game for the quiz/final.

also, are we able to draw the nonane chain as a standard 9-carbon chain with the 3 substituents or is there a reason why the line structure looks the way it does?

It would be acceptable if you draw the nonane chain as a standard 9-carbon chain with the 3 substituents because that is the simpler way to draw it but both are the same. It is just a matter of redrawing.
