. Draw a structural formula for each of the following.

a. 3-methylbutanoic acid

b. 2-chlorobenzoic acid

c. hexanoic acid

d. acetic acid

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The structural formula for 3-methylbutanoic acid should be drawn.

Concept Introduction:

The formula in which the arrangement of atoms in a molecule is shown is said to be the structural formula.

  • An organic compound in which carboxylic acid functional group that is -COOH is bonded to the carbon atom is said to be a carboxylic acid. The general formula for carboxylic acid Cn H2 n + 1 COOH.
Explanation

For number of carbons atoms in chain, the prefix is given as:

Carbon-1     meth

Carbon-2    eth

Carbon-3    prop

Carbon-4     but

Carbon-5     pent

Carbon-6    hex

Carbon-7     hept

Carbon-8     oct

Carbon-9     non

Carbon-10     dec

The numbering of the carbon chain is done in such a way that the substituents get the lower number...
