Question

In the alkane $$H_3C\, \, CH_2\, \, C(CH_3)_2\, \, CH_2\, \, CH(CH_3)_2$$, identify $$1^\circ\,, 2^\circ\,, 3^\circ$$ carbonatoms and give the number of H atoms bonded to each one of these.


Solution

There are 5 methyl groups which contain primary carbon atoms. Thus 15 H atoms are attached to primary carbon atoms.
There are 2 methylene groups which contain secondary carbon atoms. Thus, 4 H atoms are attached to secondary carbon atoms.
There is one tertiary carbon atom to which 1 hydrogen atom is attached.
There is one quaternary carbon atom.
