Problem 33P

When it is strongly heated, ethyl diazoacetate decomposes to give nitrogen gas and a carbene.Draw a Lewis structure of the carbene.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 33P :

Step 1:

Given :

When  ethyl diazoacetate(C4H6N2O2) is strongly heated, it decomposes to give nitrogen gas and a carbene and we are asked to draw a Lewis structure of the carbene. Below is the given structure of  ethyl diazoacetate.

Lewis structures are diagrams or graphical representations that show the bonding between atoms of a molecule and the lone pairs of electrons that may exist in the molecule. It is also called as lewis dot diagrams or lewis dot structures.

A carbene is a molecule containing a neutral carbon atom with a valence of two and two unshared valence electrons. The general formula of carbene is R=C:
