What is the lowest energy alternative resonance structure for this compound:

-HC-N+///N
/
H3C

Where /// is a triple bond connecting N+ and N

  • Organic Chemistry -

    These boards don't handle spaces so you can't draw structural formulas. You will need to do line formulas.
    CH3CH2CH(OH)CH2CtriplebondN or something like that.

  • Organic Chemistry -

    CH3-CH-N<triple bond>N

    There is a negative charge on CH and a positive charge on the central N

    Rank fastest to slowest reaction with HBr: A) H3C-C---C-CH3 (alkyne; that's a triple bond between the carbons) B) H CH3 (alkene; trans) = H3C H C) H3C CH3 (alkene; 3 methyl substituents) = H3C H Please explain why. Thanks!
