    why don't you include the methyl group in naming the alkene??

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    theres no methyl group on that structure, all the carbons are part of the longest chain.

    Didn't even need to go a cycle, did you use a enthalpy cycle to wok it out?

    yep, the one i told you was on page 27 makes more sense to me if I draw it out, but some people can do it without

    Is there anybody than can never do the enthalpy questions, drawing alcohols, mechanisms, all those equations and guessing the compound from a spectrum? How do you retain all of it?

    Infared shows a ketone is present, propan-2-ol is a secondary alcohol

    if it was propan-1-ol it would have oxidised to a carboxylic acid. the infrared spectrum only shows a peak for a c=o bond, no o-h bond so it would have been a ketone, which can only be made by the oxidation of a secondary alcohol.

    Someone already explained it, but thanks anyway

    Do you use a zymase enzyme for fermentation production of ethanol?

    Yeast enzyme

    What's roughly 135-140ums as raw marks in this paper?

    Ums divide by 1.5 = rough raw marks

    Im not really sure what you mean about hess' law pathways, just remember that if you are dealing with values for enthalpy of formation, write the reaction across top, and then draw an 'elements' box below, draw arrows from this box to both the reactants and products, the arrows will represent the enthalpy of formation of whatever the arrow is pointing to.
    e.g take
    CH4+H20->CO+3H2

    Elementswnn
    drawing arrows from the elements to reactants and products, if its combustion values its the opposite, and the arrows face downwards towards the combustion products.
    if you don't get my explanation then ocr purple book page 201 has a little blue box explaining it
    Thanks so much it all makes sense..so all I'm doing is drawing two arrows..up when its formation and down when its combustion. Thanks

    Have a feeling that there will be a long answer question on green chemistry

    I sure hope there isn't. Hate that stuff. Mechanisms on the other hand! Or even esters!

    Yeah, I love all the mechanism stuff, hopefully its similar to the Jan 13 paper for the green chemistry side,they could ask something on the lines of compare fermentation and hydration of ethanol in terms of sustainability or something, hopefully it doesn't come up
