CH3OO (unpaired electron on terminal oxygen)

that`s CH3COO...

there is no negative charge in the equation; it`s CH3OO
anonymous
  • anonymous
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;;;
anonymous
  • anonymous
Im pretty sure you're missing a negative charge on your original formula
anonymous

Sometimes acetate ion is written as CH3OO-
anonymous
  • anonymous
i thought so too but it wrong;
anonymous
  • anonymous
the neutral compound you proposed cannot exist because it would violate the octet rule
anonymous
  • anonymous
it said i have to draw it and it`s not multiple choice;
anonymous
  • anonymous
not possible to draw it lol, im telling you, only one option is to have a negative charge on the oxygen
Preetha
  • Preetha
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.
anonymous
  • anonymous
exactly, unpaired electron on terminal, which means extra lonepair (aka negative charge)
anonymous
  • anonymous
i did it what u draw like that but it`said wrong o-o
anonymous
  • anonymous
did u indicate the C-H bonds too? i did CH3 just to save time
anonymous
  • anonymous
maybe program problem; i will talk to prof...
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes i did it all the drawing
anonymous
  • anonymous
what class is this btw?
anonymous
  • anonymous
chem 101 o.o;
anonymous
  • anonymous
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
anonymous
  • anonymous
acetate ion is commonly dealt with at the basic 101 level

Try this. H2C=O | O-H

lol nope

oh i got it o-o it was|dw:1352782861738:dw|

ur not suppost to put negative sign... -_- stupid program
anonymous
  • anonymous
thanks for helping guys :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
why would you not put a negative sign in the lewis dot structure lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
i have no clue but i`m FINISHED!
anonymous
  • anonymous
that's one weird program
anonymous
  • anonymous
thanks guys
anonymous
  • anonymous
np, glad we got that resolved
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol yeah
