    Do you guys think ECF will be given for the ketone J? messed it up.

    I made the same mistake. If you got the carboxylic acid one correct and the correct ecf for the ester maybe minimum would be 2/7. I'd doubt more than 3.
    I think 2/3 marks for finding the carboxylic acid 4/5 marks for the diagrams each, so possibly 4/5 out of 7 imo

    For the fermentation of sugar question... do you think they will allow saying "lowee cost dur to no difficulty in separating sterioisomers, unlike the chiral synthesis"

    Maximum 4/7 otherwise it isn't fair on those who got it all correct

    I got that too thank you
    you might be missing a hydrogen there?

    OHCH2CH2CH2(NH)CH2CH2CH2OH i think, cus if you do NH2, N would be positive no ?, im freaking out cus i did it with NH but still put + on the N, i remembered me erased it, but i got some kind of deja vu that i put + sign back on again
    nah it would have + if it was NH2 the plus is only present when there is 4 bonds to the nitrogen

    What do people think the boundaries will be for a grade C?
    Also can anyone explain how they worked out the percentage yield question?
    Hopefully low, the going rates on the last papers seems to be around 35 but there's split opinions on whether this was hard or not. I'm hoping the boundaries 32 hot my sake 😂😭

    it would produce two stereoisomer yes but why would you know is guaranteed racemic, plus racemic mixture wasn't even in the spec
    Chemically-synthesised compounds will almost always produce equal amounts of both isomers. Since there was only 1 chiral centre (the one bonded to the OH, H, COOH and CH3 group), you have 2 different enantiomers.

    From Wikipedia: "In chemical synthesis of enantiomeric substances, non-enantiomeric precursors inevitably produce racemic mixtures"

    From the spec:
    "(d) explain that molecules prepared synthetically inthe laboratory often contain a mixture of opticalisomers, whereas molecules of the samecompound produced naturally by enzymes inliving systems will often be present as one opticalisomer only;"

    I don't think you have to use the word racemic to get the mark, but certainly you're expected to know the above.

    ohh **** there were 4 C environments ;-; fml man hopefully i get ecf
    yh hopefully! they're always pretty good with ecf and you'll make up the marks elsewhere!

    I didn't know it was nylon, to be fair. I just put fibres in clothing xD

    For the fragment ions and molecular ion, how were you supposed to show the + charge? For the fragment ion I put a + charge near the carbon where the bond broke and for the molecular ion I just put a + charge next to the molecule structure. Should I have used brackets?

    Me too

    did the tripeptide have 3 chiral carbons? I deffo know 2 of the AAs where glycine and aspartamic acid

    the 3rd AA was isolueine right?

    Actually i take it back. Your reasoning sounds more sensible.

    I didn't even realise the whole 4 C thing, yet I still managed to get the right answer somehow.

    check the book page 95, the 2 NMR with and without D2O, the only thing that changed is the presence of the O peak
    I'm talking about the chemical sift. And Splitting. Lets move on, doesn't change anything really

    pretty sure it was 3. 2 from the non glycine amino acids and 1 on the third amino acids side chain(think this is the 3rd amino acid in the table-cant remember name though).

    actualy i can remember the side chain(R) had a h a CH3 and a CH2CH3
