Which of the structural isomers in Exercise 37 exhibit cis–trans isomerism?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The structural isomers in Exercise 37 that exhibit cis-trans isomerism are to be stated.

Concept introduction: Structural isomerism occurs when two compounds have the same number of atoms, but the spatial arrangement of the atoms is different from each other.  These isomers have the same formula, but their properties are different. In cis-isomers, the substituents of the double bonded carbons are on the same side of the double bond, but in trans isomer, they are on the opposite side of the double bond.

To determine: The structural isomers in Exercise 37 that exhibit cis-trans isomerism.

Explanation

Explanation

The structure of 1-pentene is shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1

The reason for not exhibiting the isomerism is the presence of the double bond between first and second carbon. There are two hydrogen atoms attached to the first carbon and one hydrogen is at second carbon. The spatial arrangement will remain same; therefore, it will not exhibit cis-trans isomerism.

The structural isomer 2-pentene will exhibit cis-trans isomerism.

The cis isomer of 2-pentene is shown in Figure 2 and trans isomer is shown in Figure 3.

Figure 2

Figure 3

The hydrogen atoms attached to the double bonded carbons are on the same side of double in cis isomer, whereas the hydrogen atoms attached to the opposite side of the double bond in trans isomer.

The isomer 2-methyl-1-butene will not exhibit cis-trans isomerism.

The structure of-2-methyl-1-butene is shown in Figure 4.

The reason for not exhibiting the isomerism is the presence of the double bond between first and second carbon...
