Ah idk actually oops should have checked

Thank you



Do we need to know how to name azo compounds ie the one I've taken a pic of ? Attachment 225687
Haven't ever seen that, so I have no idea :eek: I'm starting unit 5 again from thursday

Guys, I don't get this. This is unit 4 stuff but we have to obviously recognise when a molecule displays optical isomerism.

For the image I uploaded, the book says there are two optical isomers of the molecule, but how do you know if the rotations cancel or not? Cheers

Each chiral always has 2 enantiomers.... these 2 enantiomers always rotate the plane of polarized light in the opposite direction to eachother by the same amount. I kind of thought of them as like matter & anti-matter

rotation cancel what? the extent of rotating plane polarised light?

Yeah but the book doesn't say that the two isomers cancel each other :/

2 enantiomers formed via the same chiral center will always cancel each other out in that sense, I think they haven't mentioned it in unit 5 because it might have been in the unit 4 bit

I know what u are confusing racemic mixture with.
Racemic mixture will have two different optical isomer but here its only one the other one can have CH3 can swap place with COOH so this will be another isomer.
So the one shown there rotates clockwise but the one with swapped places will rotate anti-clockwise hence no optical activity recorded

Does anybody know why 2-hydroxypropanphenylamine (3 carbon side chain with OH group on middle carbon/2ndary alcohol), reacts with 2,4-DNP?? I thought only carbonlys react with 2,4-DNP? It also doesnt react with felhlings or benedicts??

This is question 14 on multiple choice of Jan 2012

Note that it says oxidation of compound X forms a substance which reacts with Brady's reagent.
When it's oxidised B will do both of the things it's meant to.

umm dont think we should except the one which is in the book. But then again if there are name for those compounds in book I think we might lol
I will go with we dont

the two enantiomers should be equimolar for rotation to cancel, right?? A racemic mixture it is

The ethanol is oxidised by the oxygen EDIT: Looks like posthumus beat me to it again!

Can anyone explain this bit about proton NMR to me.

This answer was referring to butan-2-ol, but I don't understand how they deduce that the splitting pattern is (2,6,1,5,3) ----- How do they come up with this?
