Question

Consider the molecule below:

a) Name the molecule. 

b) Draw another resonance contributor; use the correct arrows to show electron movement and the relationship between the contributors.

c) Draw the molecular dipole.

d) Draw a hydroxide ion and show how this ion could "attack" the molecule that you've named. Use the correct arrows to show electron attack and the equilibrium between the two species. 

e) Use the correct arrows to indicate the resonance contributor.
