All about determining degrees of unsaturation from a structure or a formula.
This page explores the use of the "degree of unsaturation" formula as a way to
take the guesswork out of a molecular formula -- to -- structural formula problem.
A calculation of the degree of unsaturation is a good way to start a spectroscopy
problem. It tells you how many rings and double bonds are in the molecule; thus
Knowing the number of degrees of unsaturation in a molecule is useful because
this number is related to how many multiple bonds or rings are present in an ...
Oct 13, 2012 ... A no nonsense take on a few techniques you can use to find degree of
The total number of multiple bonds plus rings is called the Degree of
Unsaturation. The molecular formula is reduced to CnHm and the Degree of
Dec 9, 2009 ... Why calculate the degree of unsaturation? A common problem in organic
chemistry is trying to work out possible structural formulas for a ...
