(a) Thalidomide has 16 sp 2 atoms. (b) Thalidomide has 16 conjugated atoms. (c) 16 atoms of thalidomide are involved in partial or full pi bonds. (d) The largest group of atoms that always lie in the same plane contains 16 atoms. 2. Cannot determine Color cannot be determined based only on the number of conjugated atoms . 3. N N O O O H O H Thalidomide has only one sp 3 stereocenter . 4. Including the molecule drawn in question 3, thalidomide has two stereoisomers. Of these, two are enantiomers of other molecules and zero are diastereomers of other molecules. 5. N N O O O H O The most significant resonance contributor has the negative formal charge on oxygen (more electronegative than carbon) . 6. p K a = 16. The electron-withdrawing inductive effect of the nitrogen atom (absent in acetone) provides more stability for the conjugate base, making it more stable, and (compared to acetone) H a more acidic. 7. C C C C C C C N C C C N C C C O O O O H a H 8. 1-Butanol bp 117 o C, butyric acid bp 164 o C, and MTBE bp 55 o C. 9.
