Unformatted text preview: Chem 6AL Russak 16 November 2009 Midterm 2 Key The following questions are all multiple choice. Please fill out the score sheet with your name. You must put your perm number on the score sheet and fill in the bubbles associated with it to receive credit for the exam. There are equations/spectral keys on the back sheet that you may need to calculate/solve your answers. You may use a calculator. There is only 1 correct choice for each question, filling in multiple answers will result in no credit given. 1. In Gas Chromatography, compounds generally separate based on: a. Affinity for stationary phase b. Temperature of sample c. Flow rate of the carrier gas d. Boiling point e. All of the above 2.

Diatomaceous earth with a very small particle size c. Polyethylene glycol d. Silica gel e. None of the above 3. In Thin Layer Chromatography, which technique of visualization is destructive to the compound? a. Visible detection b. Iodine stain c. UV detection d. KMNO4 stain e. None of the above are destructive 4. What is not a type of stationary phase a. Silica Gel b. Magnesium Oxide c. Cellulose d. C ­18 modified silica gel e. None of the above 5. Place the following solvents in order of lowest to highest polarity a. Ethyl acetate, hexanes, acetone, water b. Water, ethyl acetate, acetone, hexanes c. Hexanes, ethyl acetate, water, acetone d. Hexanes, ethyl acetate, acetone, water e. None of the above 6. Consider the following TLC below: Lane A is the starting material for a reaction. Lane B is the co ­spot of A and C. Lane C is the crude product obtained at the end of the reaction. According to the TLC: a. The product is less polar than the starting material b. The co ­spot claims the reaction is 50% complete c. The reaction is complete d. The reaction is incomplete and needs more time e. None of the above 7. Regarding the TLC from above, let’s say that a mixture of 5:1 hexanes:ethyl acetate was used to develop the plate. What would happen to the spots if a 4:1 mixture of hexanes:ethyl acetate was used? a. The solvent mixture is more polar so all spots would travel further b. The solvent mixture is less polar so all spots will travel more c. Compound A will travel further while compound B will be retained d. Compound B will travel further while compound A will be retained e. All spots will travel less 8. When performing an IR, a salt plate is used to put the sample on. What must be a characteristic of this plate? a. It transmits in the infrared spectrum b. It interacts with the sample to induce infrared absorptions c. It is a purely covalent material d. All types of light can pass through it without refraction e. None of the above 9. In the electromagnetic spectrum, __________ frequencies, __________ wavenumbers, and __________ wavelengths are associated with high energy. a. high, small, long b. low, large, short c. low, small, short d. high, large, short e. high, small, short 10. What functionality has the highest C=O wavelength? a. Ester b. Amide c. Aldehyde d. Ketone e. None of the above 11. You have two aromatic compounds with substituents of the same functional group, but they differ in their position on the ring. What would be the best method of characterization? a. Melting Point b.
