  • question_answer n-propyl alcohol and isopropyl alcohol are examples of [MP PMT 1994]

    A) Position isomerism

    B) Chain isomerism

    C) Tautomerism

    D) Geometrical isomerism

    Correct Answer: A

    Solution :

      \[\underset{\text{n}-\text{propyl}\,\text{alcohol}}{\mathop{C{{H}_{3}}-C{{H}_{2}}-C{{H}_{2}}-OH}}\,\] and \[\underset{\text{Iso}-\text{propyl}\,\text{alcohol}}{\mathop{C{{H}_{3}}-\underset{OH}{\mathop{\underset{|\,\,\,\,\,\,}{\mathop{CH}}\,}}\,-C{{H}_{3}}}}\,\] are position isomers of each other.
