Alkane Hydrocarbons 1 Alkane - Hydrocarbons with only single covalent bonds (CH4) 2 - 3- 4- staggered (left) and eclipsed (right) - molecules tend to adopt the conformation with the lowest energy staggard since it minimizes repulsion between bonding electron pairs. Why is Life “Carbon-Based”? 1- c ovalently bond with many elements, form single, double or triple bonds with other carbon atoms and other elements, abundance – readily available Alkane Hydrocarbons (continued) 1- above 2-

Unformatted text preview: continuous hydrocarbon chain 5- above 6- X-Ray Diffraction 1- X-rays pass through the crystal and interact with the moleculte it contains scatter in new directions 2- results in a series of bright spots particular pattern = diffraction pattern determine arrange of atoms and deduce the structure of the molecule w/in the crystal 3- 4- constructive (reinforce each other) bright spots, destructive (cancel each other out) dark regions Lab-Slit and spot distance Inverse -Larger spot distance = narrow grating spacing (1000 lines/mm) -Small spot distance = wide grating space (500 lines/mm)-Directions opposite...
