Problem 83

Naming Inorganic Compounds; Some Simple Organic Compounds (Sections) (a) What is a functional group? (b) What functional group characterizes an alcohol? (c) Write a structural formula for 1-pentanol, the alcohol derived from pentane by making a substitution on one of the carbon atoms.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 83 Step 1 : (a) What is a functional group Functional groups are specific groups of atoms or bonds within molecules in a compound that are responsible for the chemical reactions of those molecules in a compound. The same functional group will undergo the same or similar chemical reaction(s) regardless of the size of the molecule it is a part of, that is a functional group is constant from one molecule to the other molecule. For example: 1) the -OH group - it is alcoholic functional group. 2) -X group - it is halogen functional group. Example of halogen are -Cl, -Br, -I, or-F. 3) -COOH group - it is carboxylic acid functional group.
