Chemistry 2203/7 (’07) TEST 2C Name: Abenor’s Answer Page1/1 Marks are in parentheses Marked tests can be picked up THIS FRIDAY 11:30 AM in AT 301! 1 . (6) For the molecules below, provide a systematic name ( 2 x 2 marks ) and assign the absolute configuration to the molecule on the left ( 1 mark ) R ; What is the degree of unsaturation of the molecule on the right ? One 3-ethyl-6-hepten-4-ol Cl F F Cl OH 1,2-dichloro-3,4- difluorocyclobutane 2a . (1) Why is t-butanol totally soluble in water but not n-butanol? Approximately spherical shape fits well into H-bonding network of water 2b . (1) Why do chlorine atoms hydrogen bond less efficiently than fluorine atoms ? Cl less electronegative than fluorine, size mismatch between Cl and H 3a . (8) Show the reagents required to execute the reactions shown below. Br CF 3 CF 2 I Br OTs SH HCF 2 CF 3 -SH LiAlH 4 -C= CH -OtBu 3b . (8) Show the starting material required to give the product(s) shown below. LiAlH 4 HBr -CN OH HO O O Br CN CrO 3 , H+ Br OH HO Br HO
