Question

Which of the following compounds will show metamerism?


A
CH3COC2H5
loader
B
C2H5SC2H5
loader
C
CH3OCH3

D
CH3OC2H5

Solution

The correct option is D $$C_{2}H_{5}-S-C_{2}H_{5}$$
Metamerism occurs when the compound has different number of carbon atoms on either side of the functional group.
Only option B can show metamerism.
$$C_{2}H_{5}-S-C_{2}H_{5}$$ is a metamer of $$CH_{3}-S-C_{3}H_{7}$$.
