10.11 MCAT: The amine on the left is chiral, while the amine on the right is not. What is the best explanation for this observation? N HO N HO o The amine on the left has a phenyl group and the amine on the right does not o The nitrogen on the left has resonance structures o The amine on the right has a lone pair of electrons so nitrogen inversion is not possible o The amine on the left does not have a pair of electrons so nitrogen inversion is not possible

Unformatted text preview: MCAT: At equilibrium the reaction below lies to the left (the reactants predominate). What is the best explanation for the energy relationship between reactants and products? NH + H 2 O NH 2 + OH o Secondary amines are more basic than primary amines o Primary amines are more basic than secondary amines o The product is stabilized by aromaticity o The reactant is stabilized by aromaticity...
