Suggest a synthesis starting with the butanol and feel free to use whatever reagents you like. |dw:1444202110113:dw|
If you can answer this correctly in the next 10 minutes I will pay you 1000 dollars and call you king of organic chemistry.
bahahahahahaha 1000 bucks
Cool looking good, what's this:|dw:1444202794234:dw|
Huh, what reagents are you using? :^)
hahahaha dont ask me pls im crumbling
I cheated for abb0ts title, anyone would have done the same thing in my shoe, many kings did not play fair
Hahaha what is this square thing xD |dw:1444202952873:dw|
its supposed to be a triple bond lol
at the time it looks liked a square to me
Ok last question, what's the solvent: |dw:1444203030801:dw|
Hurry answer, what solvent are you using during that step! Time is about to run out! xD
why is this problem useful?
to make alcohol?
It's just a random simple fun problem just like any integral.
i didnt know chemistry is about these kinda puzzles
so if i sit thru memorizing the basic groups and structures, then ill get to be able to make whatever i want?
That's why organic chemistry is so much fun. It's all synthesis puzzles.
if you had gas like octane fuel, can you turn that into drinkable alchohol
given your chem knowledge rn
It might be possible but it would be a waste of time and energy haha.
like octane, nonane same thing right
hmm i just realized a chemist is like the purest form of an engineer
octane is actually a very specific thing when used by laypeople to talk about fuel, it's an 8 carbon alkane chain and I think it has some branching, I just looked it up, they use iso-octane as the rating for fuels, which has an IUPAC name of 2,2,4-trimethylpentane which is just a way to name the graph: |dw:1444203673782:dw|
Systematic naming of compounds is something everyone learns to do in organic chemistry 1, so it's pretty useful when looking stuff up, but yeah each vertex is a carbon atom and it is assumed that each carbon has 4 bonds (4 edges) however there aren't 4 bonds at every corner. That's because hydrogen atoms are assumed to be bonded otherwise.
Here's a fun one, check this reaction sequence out: |dw:1444203961672:dw|
Here I used the same reagents in different orders and got addition to the ring in different places because they're different directing groups. And this isn't just some nonsense playing around, people use this to make all sorts of things, plastics, medicines, or even similar biological molecules. My final project for Advanced Organic chemistry was learning about the synthesis of this from basically nothing: http://scifun.chem.wisc.edu/chemweek/chlrphyl/chlrphyl.gif The guy who did this was a genius and earned his Nobel prize and did quantum mechanics in order to understand the orbitals and bonding. Bonding actually goes through quite a lot of interesting things, such as mobius loop intermediates. A cool thing: http://www.chem.wisc.edu/areas/organic/studsemin/amberger/amberger-sem.pdf Yeah the great thing is that mobius shaped molecules don't form in nature but if you make them in a special way such that their wave function is a certain thing they're actually stable so this sort of stuff eventually ends up all mixing together into math and physics.
he made that chlrophyl thing?
thats true, i guess i never thought about how many different kinds of engineered materials there are around us now
Yeah, at the time they didn't have the same spectroscopic techniques that we have today so one way to confirm a molecules structure was to create it independently. I mean everything is chemistry, we're all stuck together with tiny balls dan. :P
