Carbon ring structures are common in organic chemistry. Draw a Lewis structure for each carbon ring structure, including any necessary resonance structures.
Solution 89E Step 1 of 4 Organic compound are characterized by a chain of atom of Carbon, whose bond can be single, double of triple. We have to keep in mind that each atom of carbon can form 4 covalent bonds maximum Step 2 of 5 C48cyclobutane) is a cycloalkane. Every molecule belonging to this class of compounds has a chain in which Carbons are bonded to each other with single covalent bonds. In this case, since we have 4 Carbons, every atom of Carbon form a single, covalent bond with other two atoms of C , thus forming a 4 membered ring that compose the C structure. 4 For every atom of C, two atoms of Hydrogen can form a single covalent bond each. Step 3 of 5 C44cyclobutene) is a cycloalkane. Every molecule belonging to this class of compounds has a chain in which two Carbons are bonded to each other with a double C=C covalent bond In this case, since we have 4 Carbons, every atom of Carbon form a double bond in one side and a single, covalent bond with another atom of C in the other side , thus forming a 4-membered ring that compose the C str4ture. For every atom of C, a single atom of Hydrogen can form a single covalent bond. If we take care of the numbers of covalent bonds of each atom, we would see that every atom of C has 4 bonds, as we can expect when we talk of molecules with a carbon chain. Moreover, we have two double bonds that can be delocalized, thus forming a resonance hybrid, as we can see in figure.
