Branched vs. Unbranched

Postby Sylvester_Foley_3G » Thu Mar 02, 2017 10:02 am


I am not confused on what the difference is between the two structures of branched and unbranched, but what I am perplexed about, is what Dr. Lavelle would even ask on an exam. Does he have a preference on drawing the molecular formulas branched or unbranched? Or will he specify, if he wants it in branched or unbranched form?

Thank you in advance,
Sylvester :)

I'm pretty sure you can draw any structure, branched or unbranched, otherwise, he would be explicit about it. As long as you have the correct number of carbons and hydrogens, you should get full points.

I don't think it will matter whether or not the structure you draw is branched or unbranched, but just remember that each one will have a different name
