Functional Groups in Organic Compounds Questions and Answers

  • 1. 

    Explanation
    The image depicts the ubiquitous alcohol group, R-O-H. "R" represents a diverse roster of attached atoms, varying by specific alcohol. The central oxygen, a social butterfly, forms single bonds with R and a lone hydrogen. This arrangement imbues the group with polarity, a magnetic attraction to water, thus its hydrophilic nature. From ethanol igniting engines to methanol in industrial marvels, the versatile alcohol group plays a pivotal role in a myriad of applications.

    Which organic functional group is characterized by a carbonyl group (C=O) directly bonded to a hydrogen atom (H)?

    Explanation
    The functional group characterized by a carbonyl group (C=O) bonded to a hydrogen atom (H) and commonly found in aldehydes is known as the aldehyde group. This group gives aldehydes their specific chemical properties and distinguishes them from other organic compounds. In ketones, the carbonyl group is bonded to two carbon atoms, which differentiates them from aldehydes.

    Explanation
    In organic chemistry, R-S-R’ is the connectivity of an organic sulfide functional group. A sulfide is an organosulfur compound that contains a sulfur atom in place of the oxygen atom in an ether. The general structure of sulfide is R-S-R’, where R and R’ are organic substituents.

    Explanation
    Acyl halides, also known as acid halides, are a type of organic compound that contains a halogen atom bonded to an acyl group. They are derived from carboxylic acids by replacing the hydroxyl group with a halogen atom. Acyl halides are highly reactive compounds and are commonly used in organic synthesis. The term "acyl halide" is used to refer to the general class of compounds, while "acyl halides" is the plural form of the term.
