Problem 5.22

Trans-cyclooctene has been resolved, and its enantiomers are stable at room temperature.Trans-cyclononene has also been resolved, but it racemizes with a half-life of 4 min at 0C.How can racemization of this cycloalkene take place without breaking any bonds? Why doestrans-cyclononene racemize under these conditions but trans-cyclooctene does not? You willfind it especially helpful to examine the molecular models of these cycloalkenes.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

b. An anion has a negative electrical charge because it contains more electrons than protons. c. Ions are indicated by a + or a -. Na or Cl. - d. Cations and anions are attracted to each other which forms the basis of an ionic bond. Ionic bonds are not very strong, especially in water. The ions tend to separate from each other (dissociate), creating a solution that contains cations and anions. If you have enough of these ions, they can conduct electrical charges and are known as electrolytes.
