If bottle A contains cis-2-butene, bottle B contains 1-propyne, and bottle C contains butane, identify the bottle that contains the compound with carbon-carbon bonds of the highest bond energy.
|D||They all have equal bond dissociation energies|
Bottle A – cis-2-Butene
Bottle B – 1-Propyne
Bottle C – Butene
Compare the carbon-carbon bonds that distinguish these compounds. cis-2-Butene is an alkene which has a carbon-carbon double bond. 1-Butyne is an alkyne and has a carbon-carbon triple bond and butane has carbon-carbon single bonds. The triple bonded carbon-carbon bonds have the highest bond dissociation energy. Bottle B contains 1-propyne.
