Ashay Mehta Honors Organic Chemistry I Chem 243H Fall 2009 Due Date: 12/14/09 [1.1.1] Bicyclopentane Atoms Distance (Amperes) Atoms Bond Angles (Degrees) C1 to C2 1.574 C1 to C2 to C3 74.97 C1 to C3 1.916 C1 to C2 to C4 46.59 C1 to C4 1.574 C1 to C2 to C5 46.59 C1 to C5 1.574 C1 to C3 to C4 52.52 C2 to C3 1.574 C1 to C3 to C5 52.52 C2 to C4 2.163 C1 to C4 to C5 46.59 C2 to C5 2.163 C2 to C3 to C4 86.82 C3 to C4 1.574 C2 to C3 to C5 86.82 C3 to C5 1.574 C2 to C1 to C3 52.52 C4 to C5 2.163 C2 to C4 to C5 60.00 C4 to C1 to C2 86.82 In the bicyclopentane structure, when looking at the electrostatic potential map, the bridge carbons are the most negative and the bridgehead carbons are most positive. So, basically, more negativity is gained as we move closer to the bridge carbon starting with the bridgeheads. Also, each bridgehead carbon has two hydrogen each and between those two atoms there is some negativity due to repulsion forces. There are three main distances. They are between the bridgehead carbons, between the various methyl groups and between the bridgehead carbon and methyl group. When the distance is stretched, the interactions among the three methyl groups increase and also increases the distance between the two bridgehead carbon atoms which decreases their relative repulsion. In the same manner, compressing the distance will decrease the repulsion between the three methyl groups and increase the repulsion between the bridgehead carbon atoms. Any

    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.
