The molecular formula for pentanol is C5H12O. There are several structural isomers.
The structural formula for pentanol is CH3(CH2)4OH. Its name is amyl alcohol and its Hill formula is C5H12O. It has a melting point of -78 degrees Celsius.
The chemical formula for pentanol is C5H12O
there are 14 isomers corresponding to the formula C5H12O out of which 6 are ethers and rest all are alcohols and 3 are optically active compounds.
Depending on how much condensation is wanted, this can be C5H12O, H(CH2)5OH, or others. Since "1-pentanol" is specified, the second of these is probably better than the first.
Pentanol is an alcohol attached to a five carbon atom chain. Its basic molecular formula is C5H12O. The exact structure will depend on where in the carbon chain the alcohol is attached, as you can have 1-pentanol, 2-pentanol, or 3-pentanol.
Yes, its formula is C5H12O. It contains carbon and is thus organic.
Pentanol has a chemical formula, not equation, because it is not acting as a reactant or product on its own. Pentanol's chemical formula is C5H12O or C5H11OH.
2c5h12o +15 o2 ->10co2 +12h2o
IUPAC: 2-methyl-2-butanol COMMON: tert-pentyl alcohol or t-amyl alcohol
C5h12o >>>> c5h10 + h2o
C5H12O (CH3CH2CH2CH2CH2OH) "pentan" refers to the number 5, like a pentagon: therefore, 5 carbons. The suffix "ol" refers to an alcohol, meaning the molecule will end with OH.
When the gasoline addive MTBE burns in air the chemical equation is 2C5H12O(l) + 15O2(g) ----> 10CO2(g) + 12H2O(g).
Yes, it is slightly soluble. However, your question is not specific enough. Amyl alcohol occurs as several isomers, i.e. same molecular weight (88.1) and formula (C5H12O) but different bond structure between the atoms. The solubility depends on which isomer you are refering to. e.g. n-amyl alcohol (also called 1-pentanol) = 2.7 g per 100g water at 60 deg F iso-amyl alcohol = 2g/100g 2-pentanol = 4 g/100g 3-pentanol = 5.5 g/100g There are a few other isomers as well.

The formula for 2-pentanol is C5H12O. However, when you draw the structure, be sure to make sure that the hydroxide branch is on one of the second carbons, because it is 2-pentanol. For example: H | H O H H H | | | | | H - C- C - C- C - C - H | | | | | H H H H H The structure could also very likewise be drawn with the hydroxide group going downwards or on the "4th" carbon (this term is incorrect, because the carbon is second from the right and therefore would be called the second carbon oncemore, but for clarity, I termed it the "4th" carbon).
The most common agent is Methyl tert-butyl ether, also known as methyl tertiary butyl ether and MTBE; a chemical compound with molecular formula C5H12O. MTBE is a volatile, flammable and colorless liquid that is immiscible with water. MTBE has a minty odour vaguely reminiscent of diethyl ether, leading to unpleasant taste and odour in water. MTBE is a gasoline additive, used as an oxygenate and to raise the octane number, although its use has declined in the United States in response to environmental and health concerns. In the US it has been used in gasoline at low levels since 1979 to replace tetra-ethyl lead to help prevent engine knocking. Oxygen helps gasoline burn more completely, reducing tailpipe emissions from pre-1984 motor vehicles.Other anti-knocking compounds are available as oxygenate additives for gasoline, for example ethanol and related ethers, e.g. tert-amyl methyl ether (TAME). Ethanol has been advertised as a safe alternative by the agricultural interest groups in the USA and Europe. Its lack of toxicity is not different from MTBE, but as a polar solvent, it drives off nonpolar hydrocarbons from the gasoline, a problem that MTBE does not cause.
