What are some isomers for the chemical formula C3H8O?


The isomers for the molecular formula C3H8O include methoxyethane, propan-1-ol and propan-2-ol. Each isomer is obtained by arranging the atoms in the C3H8O molecular formula into a different structural formula. The first isomer, methoxyethane, is an ether, and the other two isomers are alcohols.

Methoxyethane is also called methyl ethyl ether and appears as a colorless liquid. Its formula is written as follows: CH3-O-CH2-CH3.

Propan-1-ol has the formula CH3-CH2-CH2-OH and is also referred to as n-propanol, n-propyl alcohol or 1-hydroxypropane. Propan-1-ol is a colorless liquid used as a solvent.

Propan-2-ol, also called isopropanol and isopropyl alcohol, has the following formula: CH3-CH(OH)-CH3. This compound is used as a solvent and can be applied topically as an antiseptic and disinfectant.

There will be several chemical compounds with that empirical formula. Each compound will have one or more isomers. Without knowledge of the particular molecular formula you are asking
Three - 2 alcohols and an ether. Now work them out.
There are 3 constitutional isomers in the molecule
Add in the hydrogens and you will see that there are eight of them. I thought I'd make a video of this answer, but my molecular model kit is in storage in my other home, 65 miles
