Problem

The following diagram represents an imaginary two-step mechanism. Let the red spheres represent element A, the green ones element B, and the blue ones element C.
A diagram shows three boxes joined by arrows. First box: 2 O2, 2FO and 2 NO. Second box: 2 NO, 2 O, and 2 FO2. Third box: 2 N, 2 O2, and 2 FO2.

Identify the intermediate.

Solution

We are being asked to determine the intermediate in the diagram representing an imaginary two-step mechanism.


Recall: An intermediate is a compound that forms from the reactants and further reacts to form the products. We do not see it in the overall reaction as a main product.


The following are the given reaction mechanisms from the diagram

2 A2 + 2 AB + 2 AC  2 A2B + 2 A + 2 AC  2 A2B + 2 C + 2 A2
