Models of Organic and Covalently Bonded Compounds

Models of Organic and Covalently Bonded Compounds
For each of the compounds whose empirical formula is listed below, you need to draw the structural
formula in the space provided and use the model kits to build a model of the 10 molecules below. Upon
completion of your group's model construction, notify your instructor to confirm that the 10 models and
structural formulas are correct before proceeding to part 2.
Part 1; Molecular models of simple covalent and organic compounds
1. O2
2. CO2
(carbon dioxide)
3. CH4
4. NH3
5. CH3OH
(methyl alcohol/methanol)
6 . C2H5OH
(ethyl alcohol/ethanol)
7. C3H8
8. C4H10
(acetic acid/vinegar)
10. C2H5COOH
(propanoic acid)
Part 2: Simple sugars (carbohydrates); Monosaccharrides: Check the board for the structural formulas
for the following simple sugars. Then, patiently await the assistance of your instructor to link the two
monosaccharrides in a dehydration/condensation linkage to form the disaccharide sucrose. Draw the
structural formula for sucrose on the reverse of this sheet. Note that glucose and fructose have the same
empirical formulas but different structural formulas and are therefore isomers.
Glucose (C6H12O6)
Fructose (C6H12O6)
