We're being asked to classify the given compounds as identical, enantiomers, constitutional isomers, or not isomeric.
Recall that isomers are molecules with the same formula but different connectivity or shape. Isomers are classified into two types:
• Constitutional isomers: isomers with the different structures
– Chain isomers: different carbon chain
– Positional isomers: different position of functional groups
– Functional isomers: different functional groups
• Stereoisomers: isomers with the same structures but different spatial arrangement
– Conformational isomers: different σ bond rotation
Classify the following pair of compounds as the same compound, enantiomers, constitutional isomers, or not isomeric.
a. same compound
c. constitutional isomers
d. not isomeric
