CHEM 2535 Problem Set #3 25 points + extra credit Name _________________________ Due: September 19, 2008 Open book; open notes. Collaboration encouraged but not copying. Write responses on this sheet. (12 points) 1. Name by IUPAC. CH 3 CH CH 2 CH 3 CH O CH 2 CH 2 CH 3 CH 3 Cl CH CH 2 CH CH 2 CH 3 CH 3 OH Challenging: OH Cl Br CH 3 CH 2 -O-CH 2 -OH (13 points) 2. (a) Draw the Newman Projections for the three eclipsed and staggered conformations of 2-methylbutane as shown looking down the C2-C3 bond. Note, C2 is in the front and C3 is in the back. The front carbon should have two methyl groups. Start on the first eclipsed conformation (labeled 0°) and put them up and to the right. The back carbon (C3) has one methyl group, put that
