Textbook Problem

There are 17 possible alkene isomers with the formula C6H12. Draw structures of the five isomers in which the longest chain has six carbon atoms, and give the name of each. Are any of these isomers chiral? (There are also eight isomers in which the longest chain has five carbon atoms, and four isomers in which the longest chain has four carbon atoms. How many can you find?)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The structures with the systematic name for the five isomers of given alkene C6H12 has to be drawn when longest chain contains six carbon atoms. The chiral isomer among all the isomers has to be identified.

Concept introduction: Alkenes are the hydrocarbons which have a genral molecular formula CnH2n. Alkenes are consist of double bond (one pi bond) due to which they are known as unsaturated hydrocarbons. Alkenes can show two type of isomerism,(1) Geometrical Isomerism (2) Structural Isomerism.

(1) Geometrical Isomerism: This type of isomerism in case of alkenes is known as cis-trans isomerism. When two same group or have similar priority present opposite side of double bond then isomer is known as trans isomer, and if both are present same side of the double bond then isomer is called as cis isomer.

(2) Structural Isomerism: Structural Isomers are the structure of a molecule with same molecular formula but have different arrangements of bonds and atoms and position of double bond also changes from more substituted to less substituted or vice-versa.

The systematic name has -ene in the suffix of the parent name of the longest carbon atoms chain.

Explanation

The structure explanation is given below.

The given alkene (C6H12) has six carbon atoms and twelve hydrogen atoms therefore longest chain will have six carbon atoms with one double bond. The five possibilities to draw the isomers which have six carbon atoms long chain are explained below.

The double bond is present at C-1 and C-2 of the longest chain of six carbon atoms. The structure is drawn below.

  

The systematic name of this isomer is 1-hexene since there are six carbon atoms and position of double bond is at C-1 and C-2 of the longest chain. There will be no geometrical isomer of1-hexene.

The double bond is present as C-2 and C-3 of the longest chain of six carbons
