In my lab (separating the components of spearmint oil), we have to list the functional groups of the 3 main components of spearmint oil.
I would greatly appreciate if someone could check my work. Unfortunately, I don't know how to draw the molecules, so I can only give you the name and hope you know from that what the functional groups are.
I'm not very good at this, so they might all be wrong
Looks like methyl, ethyl, and a ketone.
(1R, 2R, 4R)-dihydrocarveol
methyl, ethyl, alcohol??
I don't even know if I'm picking the right carbon chain, but I am pretty sure since they are all hexagons with groups coming off of them that the hexagon counts as the chain, and I shouldn't for example start with the ethyl group.
**Edit: Oh, by the way...I said that dihydrocarveol was the most polar. Am I right? Does the alcohol make it more polar than the double bond to an oxygen in the carvone? Obviously the limonene was the last polar.
