- No.5. How alkyl radicals are formed? Explain with examples.
Answer. Alkyl radicals are derivatives of alkanes. They are formed by the removal of one of the hydrogen atom of an alkane and are represented by a letter ‘R. Their name is written by replacing ‘ane’ of alkane with ‘yl’. For example, propane has a straight chain structure.
When terminal H is removed it is called n-propyl. When hydrogen from central carbon is removed it is called isopropyl, as explained below:
Removal of terminal H→ CH3-CH2-CH2– n-propyl
Propane Removal of centralH→ CH3—C―CH3 isopropyl
- No.6. What is the difference between n-propyl and isopropyl? Explain with structure,
Answer. Propane has a straight chain structure. When terminal H of propane is removed it is called n-propyl. When hydrogen from central carbon atom of propane is removed it is called isopropyl, as shown in formula
- No.7. Explain different radicals of butane.
Answer. Butane exists as n-butane and isobutene. Different structures of butyl radicals are explained
Removal of terminal H→ CH3-CH2-CH2– n-butyl
Butane Removal of central H→ CH3—C― CH2―CH3 sec-butyl
CH3 Removal of terminal H→ CH3-CH2-CH2– isopropyl
isobutane Removal of central H→ CH3—C―CH3
