    Some questions about cortisol - the hormone...

    What functional groups are present?

    Properties of the molecule in relation to the functional groups.



    Any help with the above questions would be much appreciated,

    You can't get a pH of a molecule. pH refers to concentrations of hydrogen ions in a solution and varies with both concentration of a solute in the solution and temperature.

    Cortisol is one of the steroid hormones. The structure of cortisol, along with other steroids, can be found on this site:
