Nicotine is a small molecule produced by the tobacco plant Nicotiana tabacum. Nicotine is produced by the plant to discourage herbivores. In low doses, such as those experienced by tobacco users, it is a stimulant that leads to mild euphoria. In high doses, it acts as a potent neurotoxin. In these high doses, it has been used as an insecticide.

a) The nicotine molecule is capable of making strong hydrogen bonds. Change nicotine into a different molecule, one that can no longer make any hydrogen bonds.

b) The nicotine molecule cannot make ionic bonds. Change nicotine into a different molecule, one that can now can make ionic bonds.

c) The nicotine molecule is slightly hydrophobic. Change nicotine into a different molecule, one that is more hydrophilic.
