CH3OO (unpaired electron on terminal oxygen)

there is no negative charge in the equation; it`s CH3OO

then 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

i tried that but that`s wrong;;;

Im pretty sure you're missing a negative charge on your original formula

i thought so too but it wrong;

the neutral compound you proposed cannot exist because it would violate the octet rule

it said i have to draw it and it`s not multiple choice;

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

I am pretty sure that the compound is CH3COO.

here 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.

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

i did it what u draw like that but it`said wrong oo

did u indicate the CH bonds too? i did CH3 just to save time

maybe program problem; i will talk to prof...

828282Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yes i did it all the drawing
 one year ago

ShengBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
yea, 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
