Problem 31

Biacetyl and acetoin are added to margarine to make it taste more like butter. Complete the Lewis structures, predict values for all COCOO bond angles, and give the hybridization of the carbon atoms in these two compounds. Are the four carbons and two oxygens in biacetyl in the same plane? How many bonds and how many _ bonds are there in biacetyl and acetoin?
