1 CHM 138H TUTORIAL 4 As described in the course outline, the tutorial quizzes will be based closely upon the textbook questions recommended below for this week's tutorial as well as those recommended in last week's tutorial. You should be able to do the questions below from the course textbook (J. McMurry, 7 th Edition). Please work through them in preparation for Tutorial 4. Chapter 4: 4.1, 4.2, 4.5, 4.6, 4.12-4.16, 4.18, 4.26-4.37, 4.43, 4.49, 4.51, 4.53, 4.56. Of the above, the following represent some of the better questions: 4.12, 4.13, 4.16, 4.29-4.35, 4.51, 4.53, 4.56. In addition, the following problems will be discussed: 1. Ignoring compounds that contain double bonds, write structural formulas

Consider the molecule 2,4-dimethylpentane. Draw a Newman projection of this molecule (sighting down the C2-C3 bond, from C2 to C3) for each of the three following conformations: a) the least stable staggered conformation b) the most stable staggered conformation c) the highest overall energy conformation 3. Consider the trisubstituted cyclohexane molecule below. Draw the two possible chair conformations for this molecule and, explaining your reasoning, state which conformation will be more stable. CN F...
