6. Select from the list a meso compound. (Hint: As an alternative to making models, you may find it helpful to assign R and S configurations to both of the central carbon atoms in each of the structures.)
9. at 298 K, a solution of phenolphthalein in a 40-fold excess of hydroxide ion starts off as a pink solution but gradually turns colorless as it reacts with OH(aq).
The change of concentration of phenolphthalein (phth) with time is given in the table shown.
A substitution reaction is one in which a functional group is replaced by another in a chemical reaction, functional group are a group of atoms within a molecule that are responsible for chemical reactions, therefore the substitution reaction is
An additional reaction is one in which one or more molecules combine to form a new and larger molecule and this in turn reduces the degree of unsaturation, they are the reverse of an elimination reaction, our answer is
19. The following questions concern the molecules SF4 (central atom S) and BrF3 (central atom Br). In order to answer these questions, you will find it useful to use VSEPR theory to determine the shapes of SF4 and BrF3, and also to find the symmetry elements in both species and determine the point groups.
23. Four reagents in the Key for Q32 are employed in a sequence of reactions (steps 1, 2, 3 and 4) to convert m-bromonitrobenzene into m-bromobenzoic acid (32). Reagents B and D are used for steps 1 and 2 respectively. In the spaces in the Key, type the appropriate labels of the two reagents most suitable for steps 3 and 4.
