Question
Answered step-by-step

The golden dart frog is considered the most poisonous vertebrate in

the world, with pufferfish close behind in second place. Pufferfish produce a compound known as tetrodotoxin (C11H17N3O8) that is a neurotoxin. In Japan, pufferfish are considered a delicacy and to be licenced to prepare it for others, a chef must prepare it for himself and not die. Paralysis can start in as little as 20 minutes and death in 4-6 hours.
You are collecting tropical fish from a little known cove in the pacific and studying your catch. You believe that you have discovered an even more potent neurotoxin that has the same empirical formula as tetrodotoxin, but has a mass of 1277.28. What is the molecular formula for the new poison?



-A. C44H68N12O32
- B. C22H34N6O16
- C. C133H51N9O24
- D. C1240H1680N80O240
