IF YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW! 19 for its structure), has two isomers but, cleverly, our bodies metabolize the inactive isomer to the active one so a simple mixture of the two forms is sold over the counter. Can you spot the asymmetric carbon atom? 10 Naming organic compounds . . if you really want to know! Because there are so many carbon compounds, there is a great need to be systematic and logical when naming compounds. Chemists use an internationally agreed and logical system. Pharmacists and medics, on the other hand, use more ‘historical’, ancient and trivial names as these are often shorter and simpler names, but they do not tell you much about the structures.

From p. 51). The alcohol structures are the same as given above in the previous question. The ether structures are as show in Figure. 9. 9 Ether structures of diethyl ether More recent inhaled anaesthetics include ‘isofluorane’ CF3 ÁCH(Cl)ÁOÁCHF2. Draw its structure (from p. 51).

G. 7). Each line represents a pair of electrons shared between the adjoining atoms. One important property that amino acids have is to allow some of the hydrogens of the OÀ ÀH group to ionize off, thus making then slightly acid. The cells of our bodies use these small amino acids to form larger protein molecules which also are held together by covalent bonds. These compounds are discussed further in a later chapter. 3 General properties of covalent compounds We and other animals produce their own scents.
