One of the following molecular formula can represent two organic compounds having different functional groups : This molecular formula is : (a) C5H12O (b) C5H10O (c) C5H10O2 (d) C5H12
C5H10O2 represents two organic compounds ketones (C2H5−O||C−C2H5) and aldehydes (C2H5−CH2−CH2−CHO) which have different functional groups.
One of the following molecular formulae represents a ketone. This formula is : (a) C5H12O (b) C6H12O2 (c) C6H14O (d) C6H12O
Two or more compounds having the same molecular formula but different functional groups are called:
