Convert each of the condensed structures into a bond line (line angle) structure.
a) CH3CH2CH2CH(CH3)C(Cl2)CH3 b) CH 2=C(CH2CH3)CH2CH2OH
We’re being asked to convert each condensed formula into a bond line (line angle) structure.
Recall that in a bond line structure:
1. A vertex represents a carbon atom.
2. Hydrogens bonded to carbon are not shown.
3. Elements other than carbon and the hydrogens bonded to them are written.
4. Groups written in parenthesis are branching points.
