List five important factors that influence the rate of chemical reactions.
1. Ethers a. Contain two organic groups, designated R and R’, connected by an oxygen atom. 2. Nomenclature a. Give the name of each alkyl or aryl group, in alphabetical order, followed by the word there. b. For complex or cyclic ethers, name the smallest OR group as an alkoxy group (name+ suffix –oxy). c. 3. Properties of ethers. a. Colorsless b. Have a lower boiling point than alcohols containing and equal number of carbon atoms. i. Ethers have no OH bonds. ii. The lack of OH bonds prevent ethers from forming hydrogen bonds with one another. iii. The inability to bond together via hydrogen bonding contributes to the lower
