absorption maximum at wavelengths longer than 200nm. What are the structures of A and B? The answer is : A B13.8 Three compounds, D, E, and F, have the same molecular formula, C5H6. In the presence of a platinum catalyst, all three compounds absorb 3 molar equivalents of hydrogen and yield pentane. Compounds E and F have an IR absorption at roughly 3300 cm-1; compound D has no IR absorption in that region. Compounds D and E show an absorption maximum in their UV-Vis spectra near 230 nm. Compound F shows no absorption maximum beyond 200nm. Propose structures for D, E and F. The answer is: D CH3CCCHCH2

(b) How can you account for the fact that the 1,4-addition product is more stable? Answer: Clearly we can see that the free-energy needed for 1,2-addition reaction is a bit less than 1,4-addition, which means that it needs less energy, so that 1,2-addition occurs faster. On the other hand, when the reaction really takes place, 1,4-reaction releases much more free-energy than 1,2-reaction, which means that the product of 1,4-reaction is surely more stable, so if more time is given, the product of 1,4-reaction, the more stable one, must be the main product.
