Question

Explain metamerism with suitable examples of ethers

Solution

The property in which ethers have same molecular formula but different alkyl groups in their structures is called metamerism and the isomers obtained are called as metamers.

Examples :
e.g. C2H5 - O - C2H5 - Diethyl ether;
CH3 - O - C3H7 - Methyl n-propyl ether

In the above example both ethers are having same molecular formula i.e. C4H10 but different alkyl groups in their structure, so they are metamers of each other.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
