Textbook Problem

A confused student was doing an isomer problem and listed the following six names as different structural isomers of C7H16·

a. 1-sec-butylpropane

b. 4-methylhexane

c. 2-ethylpentane

d. 1-ethyl-1-methylbutane

e. 3-methylhexane

f. 4-ethylpentane

How many different structural isomers are actually present in these six names?

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The different structural isomers actually present in each of the given compounds are to be stated.

Concept introduction: Structural isomerism occurs when the two molecules have same numbers of atoms but different bonds. Because of their different structures, the molecules exhibit different properties.

To determine: The different structural isomers actually present in 1-sec-butylpropane.

Explanation

The structure of 1 -sec-butylpropane is,
