Problem 31SP

Rank the following isomers in order of increasing boiling point, and explain the reasons for your order of ranking.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

CHM 211- Wednesday class - 8/30 4.1 Hydrocarbons (Intro) focus on alkanes (have only C-C single bonds (no pi bonds) ex. ethane, methane, etc. 4.2 Nomenclature - allows us to identify compounds - the “parent” is the single longest chain of carbons - the “substiuents” are shorter chains of carbons that branch off the parent strategy - find the parent 1st - localize and number the substituents - if there are two potential parent chains, the actual parent one has the greatest number of carbon atoms - parents use the name of the alkane with the same number of carbons (should know the 1st 10 alkanes in table 4.1 in book) (these names are based off of the number of carbons, ex.hexane has 5 carbons) - parents use name of the alkane with the same number of Carbon
