Structural Isomerism, or constitutional isomerism (per IUPAC), is a form of isomerism in which molecules with the same molecular formula have bonded together. Structural Isomers are molecules which have the same molecular formula but have different connectivities (The Order They Are Put Together). Alkanes can be very simple examples of this. With the structural formula C4H10 there are two different isomers possible. Structural isomerism, or constitutional isomerism, is a type of isomerism where isomers have same molecular formula but have different arrangements of atoms within the molecule.

What are structural isomers? Give me an example | Socratic

You can make four different isomers, depending on the position of the chlorine atoms. In one case, the Cl atoms are on adjacent C atoms.

In the second case, there is a C atom structural isomerism the ones bearing the Cl atoms.

In the third case, the Cl atoms are across the ring from each other. Some of the best examples come from organic chemistry. C2H6O is structural isomerism molecular formula.

Structural isomer - Wikipedia

Dimethyl ether and ethanol are functional isomers. The first is an ether.

The carbon chain- oxygen -carbon chain functionality is called an ether. The second is structural isomerism alcohol.

The carbon chain-oxygen- hydrogen functionality is called an alcohol. If the functionalities stay the same, but their locations change, the structural isomers are not functional isomers.

Both of them are alcohols. Ethanol and dimethyl ether are those two functional group isomers. Here ethanol contains alcohol as functional group and dimethyl ether structural isomerism ether. The isomers belong to the same homologous series.

Structural Isomerism

Here diethyl ether has ethyl group on both side of oxygen whereas methyl propyl ether has methyl on one side and propyl structural isomerism another structural isomerism of oxygen. For example 2-butanone keto-form and 2-butanol enol-form stays in dynamic equilibrium by transferring a hydrogen atom from number 3-carbon to oxygen.


This dynamic equilibrium reaction is also known as keto-enol tautomerism.
