Quiz 4 Objectives & Study Guide

 For this quiz, you must be able to do the following:

 1.  CLASSIFY a given structure as a(n): aldehyde, ketone, hemiacetal, hemiketal, acetal, ketal

 2.  IDENTIFY [circle and label] the following functional groups in a given structure:

            acetal, alcohol [1o, 2o, 3o], aldehyde, alkyl, alkene, alkyne, aromatic, carboxylic acid, cycloalkyl, disulfide, ether,  halo [specific], hemiacetal, hemiketal, heterocyclic, ketal, ketone, thiol.

 3.  NAME a given aldehyde or ketone [which may contain other functional groups such as –OH, -R, -X, -Ar, C=C, C≡C, -OR, -SH]

 4.  DRAW the structure corresponding to a given name.

 5.  PROVIDE the name, structure, or both of the product of a specified reaction using a given reactant.

 6.         a.  INDICATE whether or not [and, if so, how] a given molecule is capable of hydrogen bonding with: (i) water;
(ii) an alcohol; (iii) itself
[another molecule of the same substance].

            b.  Based on a consideration of the possible intermolecular forces present and their relative strengths and the extent to which they will operate, PREDICT whether or not a given structure will be soluble in: (i) water; (ii) cyclohexane (or other hydrocarbon).

 7.  ARRANGE a given series of compounds in order of increasing boiling point, based on a consideration of the possible intermolecular forces present and their relative strengths and the extent to which they will operate.
