I don't understand my homework assignment
Within the ingredients section of common household products, I need to find the names of organic compounds for which I can determine the functional group by name. Then, I need to name the household product/brand name, the chemical name and the organic functional group. An example I did would be: Lubriderm lotion (brand name), butylene glycol (chemical name), alcohol (functional group). I need more examples of these because I am stuck. As many examples as you can give would be SO helpful!
I need to look at plastic containers from consumer products. I must identify the recycling code and polymer name. You can use only one drinking container that is a bottle of water (which I already found). Here is an example that I figured out: Calistoga water (brand name), 1 PETE (recycling code) and polyethylene terphthalate (polymer name).
I need to look at ingredient labels of things in my home. Do not use the nutritional labels on foods packages but use the ingredients label! Examples... toothpaste, personal hygiene products, cosmetics. In the ingredients part of the label, find the names of INORGANIC chemical compounds for which you can write the correct formulas. If you do not know the formula, then find another compound! Then complete the table with 5 such compounds giving the name of the product including brand name, the chemical name and the chemical formula. No duplicate compounds.
Example I did: calistoga water (brand name), chemical name is water, chemical formula is h2o.
Thank you so much for any help you can give!
