Unformatted text preview: Will this reaction proceed as written (pKa for water = 16)? __ YES ______ 3. Name the following molecule. Cl 2-Chloro-4-ethyl-5-methyl-heptane 4. For each pair, circle the molecule that would have the higher boiling point. vs. vs. a) b) c) vs. OH Heptane is larger than pentane, and will have more dispersion forces Branching tends to prevent effective dispersion forces. Since we're comparing molecules of equal mol weight, the less branched one usually has stronger non-covalent forces. Alcohol functional groups are capable of hydrogen bonding (a very strong non-covalent interaction), so it will be "stickier." 5. Draw a Newman projection for 1,2-dibromoethane in its most stable conformation. Br H H Br H H...
