Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0CH3OO (unpaired electron on terminal oxygen)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there is no negative charge in the equation; it`s CH3OO

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2then it's not possible, carbon must be bonded with 1 of the oxygens, which leaves only a single or double bond with the other oxygen...however i have never seen an oxygen do this dw:1352781999018:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the neutral compound you proposed cannot exist because it would violate the octet rule

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2not possible to draw it lol, im telling you, only one option is to have a negative charge on the oxygen

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0here the full question CH3OO (unpaired electron on terminal oxygen) Draw the molecule by placing atoms on the grid and connecting them with bonds. Include all nonbonding electrons.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2exactly, unpaired electron on terminal, which means extra lonepair (aka negative charge)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yea, either the problem is missing a negative charge, or it's supposed to be CH3COO, either way you will never deal with CH3OO until you get into higher inorganic chemistry
