Question

(b) Mandelonitrile may be obtained from peach flowers. Derive its structure from the template in part (a) given that X is hydrogen, Y is the functional group that characterizes alcohols, and Z characterizes nitriles. 

Video Transcript

Hey everyone. So, in this problem we are going to be doing our mandelonitrile. Now, it told us that we're going to use this template and we need to fill in our x y and z. So, pretty straightforward, so what does it say that X was? it said it was just a hydrogen. So, all we need to do is include an H right there. Now, what does it say y in zero? Well, for what y it said it characterizes an alcohol and Z characterized a nitrile, so when alcohol we know is one to be represented as OH, right? to include OH there. Now, what is the nitrile look like, there's a nitrogen involved and it's actually a triple bond to a carbon, so we have a carbon that's triple bonded to our nitrogen group and this will be our mandelonitrile, so let's write that in, okay? So I hope this made sense, we were just filling an X Y and Z for the function of groups they told us.
