Question

# Which of the following is not an isomer of butanal?

A
2-Butanone
B
2-Methyl propanal
C
2-Butanol
D
But-2-en-1-ol

Solution

## The correct option is D 2-Butanol2-Butanol  $$\displaystyle CH_3CH_2CHOHCH_3$$ is not an isomer of butanal $$\displaystyle CH_3CH_2CH_2CHO$$ as they have different molecular formula.2-Butanol ha molecular formula $$\displaystyle C_4H_{10}O$$ and butanal has the molecular formula $$\displaystyle C_4H_8O$$.Aldehydes and ketones are functional isomers. Hence, 2-butanone is also an isomer of butanal. 2-Methyl propanal is a chain isomer of butanal. But-2-en-1-ol is a functional isomer of butanal and both have the same molecular formula.Chemistry
