2 Bonding in organic compounds Atoms within organic molecules are held together by covalent bonds, which are formed by adjacent atoms sharing pairs of electrons (usually each atom donates one of its outermost, or valency, electrons to the bond). Single, double and even triple bonds can be formed, in which one, two and three electron pairs are shared, respectively, although triple bonds are rare among natural products. Compounds where all the carbon atoms are joined together by single bonds are called saturated.
E. 2 Gyr ago. g. 03 PAL (Runnegar 1991), and the subsequent diversification of eukaryotes in the Cambrian is arguably testament to the importance of oxygen. at low sulphate concentrations of <100 mg l-1, bacterial sulphate reduction (BSR) results in negligible isotopic fractionation, so that the sulphide produced is £4‰ lighter than the precursor oceanic sulphate (Canfield & Teske 1996). At higher concentrations, BSR is observed to result in fractionations of 4–46‰. Isotopic fractionations >46‰ appear to require additional fractionation processes to be involved, such as bacterial sulphide oxidation, which would afford a supply of sulphate with a lighter isotopic signature than that of average oceanic water (Canfield & Thamdrup 1994; Canfield & Teske 1996).
G. uk/iupac/stereo/). In determining which assignment is given, the centre is viewed with the bond to the lowest priority group, usually a hydrogen atom in the compounds we are concerned with, pointing away from the viewer. The other three bonds then appear to form a trigonal arrange- ment. If the priority of these groups decreases in a clockwise direction the R configuration is assigned. The S configuration is given to an anticlockwise decrease in priority. An example is given in Fig. 3, in which only alkyl groups are involved and increasing priority equates with increasing mass.
