Naming Cycloalkanes Practice Problems
Each of the descriptions given below applies to more than one cycloalkane. Draw two structures for each of the given descriptions and provide a name for each.
Draw and name all the isomeric cyclobutanes consistent with the formula C6H12. Show geometric (cis-trans) isomers where possible.
Draw all the disubstituted cycloalkanes possible for the formula C7H14. Also, show the structures of cis and trans isomers where possible.
Draw the chair conformation of 1,2,3,4,5,6-hexabromocyclohexane with all the bromines in axial positions.
1,2-Diethylcyclobutane is more stable with a trans geometry while 1-3-diethylcyclobutane is more stable with a cis geometry. Figure out the reason behind this by drawing their structures.
Mark the hydrogen atoms as primary (1°), secondary (2°), or tertiary (3°) in the following structures.
Determine the name for the given cycloalkane according to the IUPAC nomenclature system.
Identify the name for the cycloalkane below according to the IUPAC nomenclature system.
An E, Z system of nomenclature can exist for N-methylethanimine stereoisomers. The lone pair is prioritized the least.
Draw the structures of the compounds listed below.
a. (E)-1-phenylethan-1-one oxime
