Textbook Problem

Each of the following acids contains an additional type of functional group besides the carboxyl group. For each acid, specify the noncarboxyl functional group present.

  1. a. Fumaric acid
  2. b. Pyruvic acid
  3. c. Malic acid
  4. d. Tartaric acid

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The noncarboxyl functional group that is present in fumaric acid has to be given.

Concept Introduction:

Carbonyl groups are the one which contain a double bond between carbon and oxygen atom.  Aldehydes and ketones possess this carbonyl functional group in it.  The structural representation of a carbonyl group can be given as shown below,

Organic And Biological Chemistry, Chapter 5, Problem 5.32EP , additional homework tip  1

If a hydroxyl group is attached to a carbonyl group means it is known as carboxyl group.  This can be represented as shown below,

Organic And Biological Chemistry, Chapter 5, Problem 5.32EP , additional homework tip  2

Apart from carboxyl group, there can be other functional group also that is present in the carboxylic acid.  They are known as polyfunctional carboxylic acids.  These occur naturally also.  Some of the important type of polyfunctional carboxylic acids are hydroxy acids, keto acids, and unsaturated acids.

Explanation

Structure of fumaric acid can be given as,

The functional groups present in fumaric acid can be shown as given below,
