Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by anonymous on Saturday, May 9, 2009 at 5:12pm.

1. Ethanol and methyl ether have the same elements in same proportions. What is the difference between these two compounds?
My guess: Ethanol has a hydroxyl group which is different from methyl ether as methyl ether contains an oxygen atom bonded to two carbon atoms.

2. Write the IUPAC name for the following compound.
CH3CH2COCH2CH2CH3
Is it 3- Hexanone?

3. Draw the constructural formula for 3-octanone.
Is it CH3CH2COCH2CH2CH2CH2CH3?

Thanks you!
