Problem 32SP

Problem 32SP

(a) There are eighteen isomeric alkanes of molecular formula C8H18. Draw and name any eight of them.

(b) Draw and name the six isomeric cyclopentanes of molecular formula C7H14 . These will include four constitutional isomers, of which two show geometric (cis-trans) stereoisomerism.

Accepted Solution
Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 32SP:

Here, we are going to draw the isomers of the following  alkane having C8H18.

Step 1: (a)

 The  alkanes of molecular formula C8H18 is basically Octane. The structure of octane is as follows:

Thus, it gives 18 isomeric forms.

  1.  2-methylheptane

 

(b) 3-methylheptane

(C)  2, 3-dimethylhexane

(d) 2, 5-dimethylhexane

(e) 2,2,4-Trimethylpentane

(f)  2,3,3-Trimethylpentane

(g)  2,3,4-Trimethylpentane

(h)  Tetramethylbutane
