Q: 3. Arrange the following compounds in increasing order of their boiling points.

Answer:

The molecular masses of the given compounds are in the range . undergoes extensive intermolecular H-bonding, resulting in the association of molecules. Therefore, it has the highest boiling point. is more polar than and so has stronger intermolecular dipole − dipole attraction than has only weak van der Waals force. Thus, the arrangement of the given compounds in the increasing order of their boiling points is given by:

Q: 4. Arrange the following compounds in increasing order of their reactivity in nucleophilic addition reactions.

(i) Ethanal, Propanal, Propanone, Butanone.

(ii) Benzaldehyde, p-Tolualdehyde, p-Nitrobenzaldehyde, Acetophenone.

Hint: - Consider steric effect and electronic effect

Answer:

(i)

Q 4 i The alkyl Group Increases in the Order

Q 4 I the Alkyl Group Increases in the Order

Q 4 i The alkyl Group Increases in the Order

The +I effect of the alkyl group increases in the order:

Ethanal < Propanal < Propanone < Butanone

The electron density at the carbonyl carbon increases with the increase in the +I effect.

As a result, the chances of attack by a nucleophile decrease. Hence, the increasing order

of the reactivities of the given carbonyl compounds in nucleophilic addition reactions is:

Butanone < Propanone < Propanal < Ethanal

(ii)

Q 4 ii The Increasing Order of the Reactivities

Q 4 Ii the Increasing Order of the Reactivities

Q 4 ii The Increasing Order of the Reactivities

The +I effect is more in ketone than in aldehyde. Hence, acetophenone is the least reactive in nucleophilic addition reactions. Among aldehydes, the +I effect is the highest in p-tolualdehyde because of the presence of the electron-donating group and the lowest in p-nitrobenzaldehyde because of the presence of the electron-withdrawing group. Hence, the increasing order of the reactivities of the given compounds is: Acetophenone < p-tolualdehyde < Benzaldehyde < p-Nitrobenzaldehyde
