In carbon compounds a given group of atoms can often be arranged in more than one way. This means that more than one structure may be possible for the same atoms. For example, both the molecules diethyl ether and 1-butanol have the same number of each type of atom, but they have different structures and are said to be isomers of one another. diethyl ether CH3OCH2OOOCH2OCH3 1-butanol CH3OCH2OCH2OCH2OOH Which substance would you expect to have the larger vapor pressure? Why?
