Problem 16.1

Each of the following ethers has been shown to be or is suspected to be a mutagen, which means it can induce mutations in test cells. Write the structure of each of these ethers. (a) Chloromethyl methyl ether (b) 2-(Chloromethyl)oxirane (also known as epichlorohydrin) (c) 3,4-Epoxy-1-butene (2-vinyloxirane)

Week 1 Monday, January 18, 2016 12:17 PM Organic Chemistry: study of carbon-containing molecules and their reactions. The nucleus is made of protons and neutrons surrounded by electrons, some of which are closer to the nucleus than others. All interactions happen between valence electrons. Use the numbers above the periodic table columns (groups) to find the number of valence electrons an atom of that element will have. Prof. Walker recommends the following dot structure: Lewis Structures: Draw individual atom using dots to represent valence electrons. Put the atoms together so they share pairs of electrons to make complete octets. Formal charge: valence electrons - #bonds - #unpaired electrons Atoms sharing electrons
