Phenylalanine is an α-amino acid.
Aspirin, also known as acetylsalicylic acid, is often used to relieve minor aches and pains, and to reduce fever.
Tetracycline is an antibiotic used against many bacterial infections.
Ampicillin is an antibiotic used against many bacterial infections since 1961.
Forskolin is a natural product produced by the Indian Coleus plant (Coleus forskohlii).
4. Cycloalkanes are named based on the number of C atoms in them, just like regular alkanes, but with the prefix cyclo– on the name. What are the names of the three smallest cycloalkanes?
5. Draw the bond-line structure of all noncyclic alkanes with only four C atoms.
6. Cyclic alkanes can also have substituent groups on the ring. Draw the bond-line structure of all cyclic alkanes with only four C atoms.
7. What is the maximum number of methyl groups that can be on a propane backbone before the molecule cannot be named as a propane compound?
8. In the gasoline industry, what is called isooctane is actually 2,2,4-trimethylpentane. Draw the structure of isooctane.
9. The actual name for the explosive TNT is 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene. If the structure of TNT is as shown below, propose the structure of the parent compound toluene.
