How could you use mass spectrometry to tell them apart? B+ = 69 Loss of 29 F+ = 83 Loss of 15 M+ = 98 B+ = 83 Loss of 15 M+ = 98 Fig. 12-6, p. 414 19 Practice Problem 12.4 Assume you have two unlabeled samples, on of methylcyclohexane and the other of ethylcyclopentane. How could you use mass spectrometry to tell them apart? C2C3 HH B+ = 69 Loss of ethyl group F+ = 83 Loss methyl group M+ = 98 C3 H B+ = 83 Loss of methyl group M+ = 98 Fig. 12-6, p. 414 20 Problem 12.3 Two mass spectra C3 H are shown below. One spectrum C3C2C=C HHH C3C2C 2C =CC 3 H H H H HH corresponds to 2-methyl-2-pentene and C3 H the other to 2-hexene. Which is which? B+ = 41 F+ = 69 M+ = 84 B+ = 55 F+ = 69 M+ = 84 Fig. 12-7, p. 415 21 Problem 12.3 Two mass spectra C3 H are shown below. One spectrum corresponds to 2-methyl-2-pentene and C 3C 2C =C HHH the other to 2-hexene. Which is which? C3 H B+ = 41 F+ = 69 - mass 15 M+ = 84 C3C2C2C=CC3 H H H H HH Look at the structures above. Which fragments would be most stable; that is, where would you cleave the bond? Hint: Consider the stability of carbocations or radicals. B+ = 55 - mass 29 F+ = 69 - mass 15 M+ = 84 Fig. 12-7, p. 415 22 Problem 12...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
