classification of a compound

Postby mistique » Sat Mar 03, 2007 6:49 am

Hey everyone out there,
I am stuck on a question, that i really need help with. Does anyone know the answer to this question?:

"During an experiment, you analyse a compound that has a chemical composition of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen in the ratio of 1:2:1 and a six sided molecular shape. What predictions could you make with regard to classification of the compound?"

Thanks a lot :)

Some monosaccharide.

6 sided molecular shape + 1:2:1 ratio.
Think. What has a ratio of 1 carbon to 2 hydrogen to 1 oxygen?
C6H12O6 also known as glucose, for example.

If it were a five sided molecular shape it may be fructose

You don't know any other sugar than Glc and Fru? :lol: You should study a little more...

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

Wow Jackbean such generalizations reflect upon you as a person

I hope we can develop some sort of unity or neutrality. I am not only referring to this answer but your comments about my other answers. It's up to you whether you want to accept the offer or not. I just don't like it when people attack or make false generalizations about me, especially when i am just trying to help someone out. Just so you know, if you are 23 years old that makes you SO much older than me. I will not say my age, but it goes along the lines of being a large difference.

Lets have a look into the way Jackbean works:
You listed two examples, therefore you only know two.

That's a false generalization. I do know more than two.

Notice how i at least address the question?

This is not an attack but a reflection comment.

Thanks for saying i have to study more - i will take this in as support. I will try harder and i have years to go. I will take that into account to improve my knowledge in future years.

wow!!!

you really took it harshly :o

but is good at heart :wink:


i hope so :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

:lol: jwalin, you rock! :lol:

golden:
Maybe, if you were more concrete with your age, that could help ;)
Anyway, I was the same. I remember, we had some calculation of molecular formula and the result was C6H12O6, so I did respond, it's probably glucose.
But when will you be more experienced, you will be, hopefully, more aware of such quick judgement. Yes, it is probably Glc, as it is probably for some school class, but that doesn't change anything about that there are 2^4 of possible monosacharides (yeah, surprisingly, you did not mention, it's D-Glc, so it's only 2^3)...
