Unformatted text preview: Hybrid of the molecular and structural formulas Methane: Ethane: CH 4 CH 3 CH 3 Isomers: substances that have identical molecular formulas, but different structural formulas. These compounds may have different properties. Isomers of C 5 H 12 Pentane 2-methyl butane 2,2-dimethyl propane BP = 36 o C BP = 28 o C BP = 9.5 o C Practice: draw the isomers that exist for C 6 H 14 Hintthere are 5 of them! Conclusions Organic chemistry focuses on the study of carbon-based compounds Millions of different organic compounds exist There are a variety of ways to represent organic compounds Isomers are molecules with the same molecular formula, but different structural formulas...
