Day 12 Podia Question

Day 12 Pre-class Podia Problem: Conformers and Isomers

Here is a structure of 2,5-dimethylhept-3-ene.

  • There is one chiral carbon center in this molecule. Draw the structure and identify the chiral carbon with an asterisk (*).
  • Draw a different conformation of the structure above.
  • Draw the enantiomer of this molecule.
  • Draw the geometric isomer of this molecule.
  • Draw a constitutional isomer of this molecule that would be likely to have a higher boiling point.
    • Explain why you think this constitutional isomer would have a higher boiling point.
    • Draw a different conformation of this constitutional isomer.

Two days before the next whole-class session, this Podia question will become live on Podia, where you can submit your answer.
