                   What Is Mutarotation? Give Example And Structure

4 years ago


Answers : (1)


Mutarotation is the change in the optical rotation that occurs by epimerization (that is the change in the equilibrium between two epimers, when the corresponding stereocentersinterconverted).

Cyclic sugars show mutarotation as α and β anomeric forms are interconvert. The optical rotation of the solution depends on the optical rotation of each anomer and their ratio in the solution.

what are different types of reducing agents for reduction of aldehydes&ketones to alcohols
The reduction of an aldehyde You get exactly the same organic product whether you use lithium tetrahydridoaluminate or sodium tetrahydridoborate. For example, with ethanal you get ethanol:...

Which of the following names are correct as per IUPAC norms? 2,6,6-trimethyloctane 3,3,7-trimethyloctane Pent-4-en-2-yne Diethyl ether
3 and 4 are incorrect. But in case of 1& 2, 1 is given correct in a book reasoning first locant (here methyl group) should get lowest number (3) whereas in 2 nd first locant gets 3 which is...

Lowest locant rule is violated in compunds one and third,fourth is common name and not IUPAC name,hence second compound is the correct answer
Harihara Narayanan 4 months ago
The second compound would be the right answer as first one and the third violates the lowest sum rule and the last one is a common name.

Do covalent bonds dissolve in water to form electrolyte solutions?
No, covalent bonds do not disassociate in water to form electrolyte solutions. Ionic bonds are usually two completely different elements of opposite charges, such as sodium chloride, which...

Or Covalent bonds don't exist in ionic form and they do not have any free electrons, even when you dissolve them. So they are unable to carry electricity

PH 3 has a tetrahedral or a trigonal pyramidral structure??
You are partly right. Look at page 111 and 112. See basically, it all depends on the lone pair. Since there is a lone pair, it’ll be trigonal pyramidal. (BECAUSE OF THE LONE PAIR) if there...

It is trigonal pyramidal, just like ammonia. Also, if you draw the structure of Ph3, you get sp2 + 1 lone pair which corresponds to the trigonal pyramidal structure.

Q . FOR THE REACTION :- CaCO 3 (s) ------------ ------------> CaO (s) + CO 2 (g), K p = 1.16 atm AT 800 0 C . IF 20.0 g OF CaCO 3 WERE KEPT IN A 10 L CONTAINER AND HEATED UP TO 800 0 C ,...
sorry for that,i did one mistake here,Kp=Kc(RT)^delta n here delta n=1 therefore,Kc=Kp/RT =1.16/.0821*1073 =.01318 Let the degree of dissociation be d .01318=.02 d unreated =.02-.01318...

Can chemical reactions happen at 0 degrees Kelvin? If so, how slowly would they occur?
Exactly 0K is an unattainable temperature. Temperatures can approach absolute zero but not be absolute zero. One of the ways to study very fast reactions is to cool them down to a few...

Also, zero kelvin is absolute zero, complete cessation of all movement (including sub-atomic particles) No electron movement = no chemical reaction. at all.
