Chemistry 222 Problems assigned from the text Chapter 4: 10, 12, 13 (a-d, f), 15, 18, 19, 44 (b-e) and 46 10. The compound, 1,4-dichlorobenzene ( p -dichlorobenzene) has a rigid geometry that does not allow free rotation. Yet, no cis-trans isomers exist of this structure. Explain why it does not show cis- trans isomerism. In a benzene ring, all of the C atoms are sp 2 hybridized, which gives them trigonal planar geometry. Thus, the Cl atoms attached at positions 1 and 4 are both in the plane of the ring. They cannot point above and below the ring, which is required for them to exhibit cis-trans isomerism. 12. Name these compounds. NO 2 Cl CH 3 Br a. b. c. C 6 H 5 CH 2 CH 2 CH 2 Cl d. C 6 H 5 CCH 2 CH 3 e. f. g. h.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
