Account for the fact that treatment of tert-butyl methyl ether with a limited amountof concentrated HI gives methanol and tert-butyl iodide rather than methyl iodideand tert-butyl alcohol.
Chase Bobier CHEM 1010 notes week 7 Important terms Things you need to know Ionic and Covalent Compounds A compound is formed when two or more different elements combine chemically Bonds -Ionic bonds are the electrostatic force between ions of opposing charges. So anions bond with cations. Ionic compounds are always neutral, having no charge. (Example: Ns and Cl bond to form NaCl) -Covalent bonds are when atoms ‘share’ electrons between each other in pairs. Covalent compounds are usually formed between two nonmetals. Predicting the Formula of Ionic Compounds (Ionic compounds are a metal and a nonmetal) 1) Write the metal with it’s cationic charge 2) Write the nonmetal with it’s anionic char
