🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Zhang's class at FIU.
Identify ALL of the functional groups in the following molecule. Assign degree of functional group when appropriate.
We’re being asked to determine the functional groups (and degrees) present in the given structure:
Recall that the essential functional groups are:
Also, recall that the degree of a functional group depends on the number of carbons it is directly/indirectly attached to. The functional groups that get degrees are the “A-team”:
• Alcohol (R-OH)
• Alkyl Halide (R-X)
• Amine (R–NH2, R2NH, NR3)
• Amide (CONH2, CONRH, CONR2)
