Textbook Problem

Structurally, ethers may be viewed as derivatives of water in which

  1. a. both hydrogen atoms have been replaced with hydrocarbon groups
  2. b. both hydrogen atoms have been replaced with hydroxyl groups
  3. c. one hydrogen has been replaced with a hydrocarbon group
  4. d. no correct response

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Ethers can be viewed as derivatives of water in which means has to be chosen from the given options.

Concept Introduction:

Ether is an organic compound.  In ether, an oxygen atom is bonded to two carbon atoms by a single bond.  The groups that are attached to the carbon atom by a single bond may be alkyl, aryl, or cycloalkyl groups.  The functional group of ether is COC.  The generalized formula of ether can be given as,

Organic And Biological Chemistry, Chapter 3.14, Problem 1QQ

Explanation

Reason for correct option:

Ethers are compound that have an oxygen atom that is bonded to two carbon atoms through a single bonds.  The carbon atoms may be from alkyl group, aryl group, or cycloalkyl group.  In simple words, the oxygen atom that is bonded to two hydrocarbon groups through a single bond is known as ether.  They have the structure similar to water where the hydrogen atoms in water molecule are replaced by the hydrocarbon chain.  Hence, option (a) is a correct one.

Reason for incorrect option:

Option (b) tells that the ethers can be viewed as derivatives of water in which the two hydrogen atoms are replaced with hydroxyl groups...
