All of the following questions refer to the picture of the molecular model on the right hand side:

(i) Draw the full structural formula

(ii) Write out the molecular formula.


(iii) Write out the condensed structural formula representation.

C4H6(OH)2 - (rings are kept intact in the representation. In this case the C4H6 represents the hydrocarbon ring)

(iv) What is the full systematic name of the molecule?


(v) What kind(s) of intermolecular forces does this molecule experience?

Dispersion forces (induced dipole-dipole), Hydrogen bonding. Can you see why there is no permanent dipole?
