Guanidine is about as strong a base as hydroxide--why so much stronger than most amines? O (guanidine) NH O Amines 1. Design an experiment using amine basicity to determine if a substituent Z is electron-donating or electron-withdrawing by induction only or by resonance and induction. Describe what you should observe in your experiment for all possibilities of Z. 2. For the following, answer the question and briefly explain: h.

The liquid contains, among other things, caffeine ( A ), tannic acid ( B , provides brown color), and linalyl acetate ( C , a terpene which is the principle fragrant component). Your task is to separate these three components and isolate each as a pure, neutral compound. Develop an extraction scheme and indicate which component is where at each step. Be sure to indicate what ionization state, if any, the compounds are in. A caffeine 7. Synthesize the following: B a tannic acid (corilagin) C linalyl acetate I use these as your only sources of carbon a....
