I dont think this is the case. It would still show optical isomerism.
Why would HO2CCO2H react with MN04- ions? and which reaction is this?
This one too.
just like HCOOH is further oxidised to CO2 by KMnO4, similarly, HOOCCOOH is also oxidised
Only when MN04- is hot and concentrated?
well the first one shows both: optical due to bidentates and cis trans because there are pairs of two types of ligands.
the 2nd one shows only cis trans since its square planar
the 3rd one shows neither becuz the shape is tetrahedral so no cis trans and secondly not all the ligands are different so optical cant be shown either
ethnadioc acid will be oxidised by any stron oxidising agent like MNO4 to carbon dioxide and water. Also methanoic acid.
the way it is for breaking down alkenes
cis trans is only in planar ones?
lol m worried abt bio tomorrow so cant focus here atm xD
u taking bio too haithsoul ?
well the two cis shown are optical isomers or mirror images of each other
Why is the 2nd one not feasible?
yeah and mechanics. Idk man bio should be easy unless some weird shit comes.
add together the E values of both the reactions of VO2+ and Fe3+ in the data booklet
if answer is -ve reaction is not feasible
