Why is boiling point of ethanol higher than its isomer methane?
Boiling point of ethanol is higher than its isomer methane due to the presence of hydrogen bond in ethanol ...
Asked in Medication and Drugs
Is the R(-)- isomer or the S(-)-isomer of adrenaline more potent?
The R(-)-isomer of adrenaline is more potent. Its orientation allows its benzylic hydroyxl to form a hydrogen bond with Serine410 whereas this doesn't happen with S(-)-isomers of adrenaline. ...

An isomer of a compound with the formula c2h6 would have the formula?
C2H6 and isomer would have the same simple chemical formula. In the case of this molecule though, an isomer is not possible. ...
Asked in Organic Chemistry
Why is trans isomer more stable than cis isomer?
Because , Cis isomer are same group on same side of the c=c bond . & those are bulky group on the same side , they are formed steric repulsion to each other then Cis isomer are less stable than trans isomer is same group of opposite side of c=c bond no formation of steric repulsion to each other. and trans isomer is more stable than Cis isomer..... ...
Asked in Acids and Bases
Which is more acidic orthohydroxybenzoic acid or metahydroxybenzoic acid?
the ortho isomer is more acidic because the carboxylate anion (the conjugate base) can be stabilized through hydrogen-bonding. ...
What is difference between cis-trans and Z-E isomers?
Z isomer are cis isomer it has the tow groups at the same side around the double bond but the E isomer are trance isomer it has the tow groups at opposite side around the double bond. ...
Asked in Carbohydrates and Low-Carb Diets
How is the CORN rule applied to name carbohydrates?
The "CO" refers to the carboxyl, the "R" refers to the alkyl and the "N" refers to the nitrogen. Look at the carbon chiral atom of the carbohydrate with the hydrogen atom behind. If CO-R-N is clockwise, then it is a D isomer. If CO-R-N is anti-clockwise, then it is a L isomer. ...
Asked in Chemistry, Biochemistry
Is fructose an isomer of glucose or is glucose an isomer of fructose?
Yes. And no, that's not an answer from a wise guy. A chemical isomer is a different "version" of a substance that has the same chemical formula but with a different molecular structure, and, therefore, different chemical and physical properties. Both fructose and glucose have C6H12O6 as their chemical formula, and each is an isomer of the other. ...
Asked in Elements and Compounds
How is carbon monoxide converted into carbon dioxide in a catalytic converter?
Carbon monoxide is converted into carbon dioxide in a catalytic converter when the hydrogen is removed from the carbon monoxide and becomes a polymeric isomer. ...
