C357 PPS #3 Solutions Page 1 of 3 1) Rank the following compounds in order of decreasing acidity (1= strongest acid, 5= weakest acid). OH O Cl OH O Br OH O I OH O OH O F 1 5 4 3 2 2) Consider the molecular formula C 4 H 8 O. In the space below, draw and circle four distinct structural isomers that contain a total of four distinct functional groups (not counting alkanes!). More simply said, draw four distinct structural isomers for the molecular formula that, among all four of your structures, one would be able to find four distinct functional groups (not counting alkanes). Possible (there are others!!): O Ether OH Alcohol H OH H Alkene Alcohol O H Aldehyde O Ketone 3) Pi ( ! ) bonds are generally weaker than sigma (s) bonds. Offer a short explanation for this. A: p-orbitals of the ! bond overlap side-to-side, which is less effective than head-on overlap of orbitals in " bonds. 4) Sodium lauryl sulfate (shown below), a detergent, is a common ingredient in shampoos and other cleaning solutions.
