Nocardicin A, shown below, is a monocyclic B-lactam with antimicrobial activity similar to penicillin.
Circle and label 5 different functional groups present in Nocardicin A.
Draw all valid resonance contributors for the following cation. Show how the electrons can be moved using
The molecule shown below is an example of an allene.
a) What is the geometry about each carbon?

The following compound has two configurational isomers: CICH-CHCI
One isomer has no dipole moment ( 0 Debyes), while the other has a relatively large dipole (II - 2.95 D).
Propose structures for the two isomers that are consistent with these data.
