I am doing an extra credit project for my Chemistry class and we have to list by name and draw the structures of as many isomers of C5H10O as we possibly can. I already have the following.
  • 2-pentanone
  • 3-pentanone
  • pentanal
  • cyclopentanol
  • methyl isopropyl ketone
  • 3-methyl-2-buten-1-ol
  • oxane or tetrahydropyran
  • 3-methyl butanal
  • 2-methylbutanal
  • 2,2-dimethylpropanal

Can anyone think of any more?

There are at least 35 isomers (cis and trans, R and S included) by my count.

Your list has no epoxy compounds, cyclics, olefins... and no stereochemistry.

A cyclic ether?

A cyclic ether?
Yeah. A methylated version of tetrahydrofuran for example. Don't forget R and S versions. Epoxy compounds are another example of a three member ring cyclic ether. Again with the R and S for that.
