octane isotopes
« on: November 27, 2004, 02:33:55 PM »
My chemistry teacher wants us to name and draw the 18 different isotopes of octane.  Does anyone know where I might find pictures so I have a clue what I have to do or what the 18 different names are.

you mean isomers not isotopes...
just take C8H18 and arrange the carbons in such a way that the 18 hydrogen can bond to them

examples:
CH3CH2CH2CH2CH2CH2CH2CH3
CH3CH(CH3)CH2CH2CH2CH2CH3

1.) Octane. :P
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex
