Calculating Degree of Unsaturation Relates molecular formula to possible structures Degree of unsaturation : number of multiple bonds or rings Formula for a saturated acyclic compound is C n H 2n+2 Each ring or multiple bond replaces 2 H's

Example: C 6 H 10 • Saturated is C 6 H 14 – Therefore 4 H's are not present • This has two degrees of unsaturation – Two double bonds? – or triple bond? – or two rings – or ring and double bond

Degree of Unsaturation With Other Elements • Organohalogens (X: F, Cl, Br, I) • Halogen replaces hydrogen •C 4 H 6 Br 2 and C 4 H 8 have one degree of unsaturation • Organoxygen compounds (C,H,O) - if connected by single bonds • These don't affect the total count of H's
