  1. Isomer

    • Example: ethanol vs. dimethyl ether (C2H6O)
    •   -Ethanol has hydroxide (OH) and DE has 2 methyl functional groups (CH3)
  2. FIRST Exception to the Octet Rule
    Having FEWER

    • Beryllium (Be) 4 e-
    • Boron (B) 6 e-

    Therefore highly reactive.
  3. SECOND Exception to the Octet Rule
    Having MORE

    • Sulfur (S) 10 or 12 e-
    • Phosphorus (P) 10 e-
